Port Status

Main Features

Firmware & Upgrade

It is possible to unlock the firmware partition by creating a file called rkusb.tag at the root of the filesystem, cleanely unmount and rebooting the player. DO NOT MODIFY any file or your might render your device unusable

  • RockChip RK2705: SoC from Rockhip, we already have a port for it
  • Hinix H27UBG8T2ATR?: flash memory
  • EM639165: 16MB SDRAM
  • RDA 5807: FM tuner chip, we already have a driver for it
  • XPT2046: 4-wire resistive touch controller

OF firmware disassembly

  • lcd panel driver seems to be ili9340 or very similar. It is connected in 16bit parallel mode. The screen resolution is 240x320.
  • DAP utilizes internal dac (no surprise as there is no external codec chip visible on PCB scans)
  • PC0 high keeps power supply (as in other rk27xx devices so far)
  • There seems to be software SPI implementation where PC5 = clk, PC4 = mosi, PC3 = miso. PC2 is PENIRQ and PC6 are also referenced might be related but I don't see unclear. It appears what they do actually. My wild guess is that PC2 = /penirq or HOLD, PC6 is /cs. CS might be held low all the time. It looks like interface to XPT2046 configured in single ended mode 8bit resolution. The battery input of the XPT does not seem to be used.
  • PC7 is set low at the very beginning and judging from the call placement it is codec related
  • power button is routed to PC1, hold is unknown detected via the ADC channel 1.
  • sd detect might be routed to ADC channel 2
