Honestly the new part numbers made me think that the hardware was refreshed. Also originally the people that hacked the 14's posted very specifically that the 14 and 15 software was not interchangeable on the opposite units.

ooh almost forgot 2015 headunits has been upgraded!!! at the moment our RAX is not compatible with this units, itīs not that we canīt do them but we need a unit and have to rewrite our software. The official firmware version is 14.39 and will not work on MY 13 or MY14, so they really changed some major stuff. I think that it could be upgraded hardware like processor, XMSIrius decoder and etc. I have ordered one unit and I hope Im able to get it in asap.
However, while i can't find the post at the moment, i think more recently the main developer has passed word that the hardware is exactly the same inside.

So I'm not really sure what to think.

my current GUESS is that the hardware is basically the same but that they were trying to close down the exploit used to hack the 14. It took some time but the 15 is hacked now too so whatever change they made didn't matter all that much in terms of 'locking down' the platform.

He just can't "see" the differences. To believe they are the same is to believe that Chrysler created a new part number, thus creating separate stock units throughout the supply chain plus creating a separate software maintenance path to maintain with either zero pt zero changes or to thwart the hackers. IMHO I don't buy either scenario. I not saying big changes were made but some were. Note the power off radio battery draw TSB for MY15 only, that's a power circuit difference from the MY14.

Exactly. Nobody created a separate part number with the associated supply chain logistics without good reason.

Chrysler is consistent with their part numbers hardware-wise. The alphabetic suffix (eg, AA, AB, etc) denotes compatible (interchangeable) revisions to the same base part. Changes to the numeric portion of the part number denote either major changes to the part, or lack of interchange with the previous part.

Yep, The '14 8.4A/N radio is p/n 68150037AG and the '15 8.4A/N radio is p/n 68238624AC.

The nav screen seems faster, but that is about it.

Yep...my iPhone music no longer works with it plugged in unless I reboot the phone each time before plugging it in. Otherwise it just sits there and eventually says "Unknown iPod".
