I haven't rooted my S4... Yet... Very tempting since they started blocking creating new folders on the extSDcard (argh!).

I've lost text messaging and now the phone connection is very flaky. I definitely cannot initiate voice activated calls and incoming call pickup is sketchy and even today initiating a call from the phone, it would not transfer to the radio.

Has anyone tried "Botifier" on their Android phone to try to 'fix' the issues?
I'm thinking I'll give it a go.
Rooting the S4 is simple, XDA developers has instructions. I use the Hyperdrive ROM which dramatically increases battery life. Botifier works for some things but is complicated. Samsung and Google both are keeping up with technology (Bluetooth 4.0). It's completely Jeep's fault for not updating the 430N. I've been extremely frustrated with Jeep on the 430N. It's actually a Mitsubishi radio and Jeep has no idea how to update it and has basically no plan to. To my knowledge they have never updated the CDDB and have done minimal updates to anything else. The 430 has the ability to read address books, display contact pictures, multiple voice commands, etc. but because of the lacking technology of Uconnect none of the features work. And Jeep's answer was a new Uconnect which is incompatible with the 430. So you have a Mitsubishi system controlled by Jeep's bluetooth. The Nav is another mess, Garmin but not Garmin. I'm a tech guy and can write code, hack anything, but firmware is a whole other animal. We would have been better off with a Kenwood system and they are much cheaper. There are some fixes for things such as Pandora. There's an app called Pandora Patcher that let you set the AVRCP (Song information) to legacy 1.5 or 1.3. For use with out of date systems like the 430. Botifier has a persistent connection that might solve the disconnect problems. I've never had that issue. I do use Bluetooth auto connect which launches apps when a connection is made. XDA has a plethora of information on this subject. Good luck
