I don't think you can do that! there should be some delemeter between each char representation...

Here's a method for use with fixed lengths. Usage:

    hexToString("41424344", 2)
    public static String hexToString(String input, int groupLength) {

        StringBuilder sb = new StringBuilder(input.length() / groupLength);
 

        for (int i = 0; i < input.length() - groupLength + 1; i += groupLength) {

            String hex = input.substring(i, i + groupLength);

            sb.append((char) Integer.parseInt(hex, 16));

        }
 

        return sb.toString();

    }
