Hisound Studio & RoCoo Firmware Files

post #1 of 123
Thread Starter 

At Hisound's discretion, I've uploaded both firmware files for both the Studio and RoCoo. Courtesy of our good friend Jack, of Hisound, of course. smile.gif

 

 

Instructions can be found within the respective zip files. I'll update where necessary. Happy listening fellas! biggrin.gif

 

DISCLAIMER: I'm merely uploading the exact files I received from Jack, so for all intents and purposes, please refer to hisound for all troubleshooting. Thank you.

studio-20111026 - Dynamic only.
Studio DT-DYNAMIC 20111223/Studio DT-BA 20111223 - latest as today,  ver:2011.12.13.
 
BTW the are two folder inside the Studio V 双模studio-动圈版 and 双模studio-动铁版 which contain the default FW。

 


 

 

Tracks not playing and displaying question marks? Try the following instructions (for Studio-V):

 

 

From beginning to end, I did exactly as follows, after which all files worked flawlessly:

 

  1. With the Studio-V already off, push the RESET button down for a second or two, then release.
  2. Hold down the MIDDLE key for 2-3 seconds, after which the player shouldn't turn on of course, because of step 1. Then, release the MIDDLE key.
  3. Wait ~15 seconds.
  4. After ~15 seconds, hold the UP key, and all the while, connect the USB cable to the Studio-V.
  5. The windows 'da-dun!' sound should confirm that the Studio-V is connected.
  6. Continuing to hold the UP key, and launch the respective firmware .exe file (StUpdaterApp_4MIN.exe in my case; the latest Studio-V dynamic firmware file)
  7. At this point, the Studio's screen should appear all fuzzy/grainy, which is what you want. Once this appears, you may now release the UP key.
  8. Within the program itself, make sure 'Format Data Area' and 'Full media Erase' are CHECKED.
  9. Hit start, and left the software do it's job.
  10. Upon completion, safely remove (very important) the Studio-V, switch it on, and confirm that it's fully functional.
  11. Reconnect the Studio-V, drag and drop whichever tracks/albums were initially displaying questions marks, and wait for the files to transfer.
  12. After the files have transferred, once again, safely removed the Studio-V.
  13. Switch it on again, go into the source manager and located the files/albums that were just transferred, and confirm that there are no more question marks.
  14. All file formats should now work flawlessly.

 

Hope that helps! Enjoy. biggrin.gif

Gaaa!

 

Thx for doing this but I sure have ****ty luck. Just came back from my brothers who has windows, im a mac person, and now I realize that I installed the firmware for Rocoo, NOT the Rocoo P! 

 

Well, it seems to work well anyway. Guess Ive got to go back some other day n try again.

 

A question: 

Is it really necessary to format the built in mem to complete the installation? I dident do that but it shows anyway that I have the newest firmware.

This thread is amazingly useful. I just received my Studio-V and, like many others, the instructions on firmware were a little lacking. It even took a little searching around to come across this thread.

 

I've tried reading through the other thread for more information and I'm still unclear what the differences are between firmwares. I know I can just test them all myself, but it would be nice if a short description of each firmware could be provided next to the download links or just below them. It would be a lot easier if we could read the description before going through the whole process of clearing everything and flashing the new firmware. The only information I've been able to gather is that the hiss that some experience is reduced with different firmware than stock.

 

Thanks again for gathering all of the information into one organized post. It will, at the very least, make it an easier process to test out the different options.

You're very welcome, my friend. I unfortunately do not have the time on hand to compare and contrast the two firmware files for my Studio-V, but I have indeed tried both, and in short, I prefer the dynamic firmware. In fact, that seems to be the general consensus, from what I've gathered. Our good friend mark2410 did mention the differences within his Studio-V review, however. So head on over to that thread, and I'm sure he can be of more assistance than I can. smile.gif

I'll be getting my studio v soon, so im leaving a subscription to this thread biggrin.gif
post #11 of 123

I have a minor correction to the Studio FW's, or it's actually essential. The one named "Studio-Original" is actually the latest Studio firmware.

 

For instance "Btn sound" is changed to "key sound" and it now actually sounds better with the key sound off, well at least this is what I hear.

 

I had changed the name of this folder to "Studio-Original" before I uploaded it,  because I though it was the firmware that was installed on the Studio-V that I received, but it's not. It's a 1.04 version and the pre-installed was 1.03. 

 

So, if any owners of the Studio-V haven't tried it yet or they have some issues with earlier firmware's they may want to try test it out and see if it solves any of these issues.

 

I know, it's very confusing, but I can be blamed for this one.

Jupiter, when you say 'latest' do you mean it's even 'newer' than "DT-DYNAMIC 20111223" mentioned above

which is less than a month old? (You do know the numbers are the date, right?)  So, is the "Studio-Original" actually newer than 12/23?

 

Also, it has widely advised that the "DYNAMIC" is the best sounding? Can you comment if there's a SQ difference between the ORIGINAL and the DYNAMIC.

Yes, it's newer! I do know the numbers are the datewink_face.gif Check the dates of the firmware .sb file of the "original and you will see.

 

Well, I do believe it's a matter of personal taste which firmware anyone sound wise prefer. So you will have to try it out for yourself and make your own decision, what other's say doesn't mean it's right for you. 

 

There is a difference between the new "original" and the "dynamic" but since I just recently have "re" installed the "original" I won't comment much further about this right now, except they sound  different! 

 

I do suggest for anyone who hasn't tried the "original" to test it and make their own decision.

Jupiter, you better check the dates:  DYNAMIC's date is 12/30, ORIGINAL's date is 12/29....?!?!

 

So, which is the 'newest' again?

 

Like I said, this sh!t is getting very confusing.

post #15 of 123

Ok, I tried both the 'newest' ORIGINAL dated 12/29, because you said it was newer than the DYNAMIC which I was running, dated 12/30. Go figure.

 

Verdict: The 'DYNAMIC' is hands down exactly what the name says: D-Y-N-A-M-I-C as in Ka-Pow! Winner!

 

The 'ORIGINAL' might be good for snoozing, studying, or meditating but the 'DYNAMIC' rocks.

F#ck the dates.

 

Peace-out.
