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();
    }
