Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

So I updated the firmware last night on my 15 GC Altitude...and I haven't noticed anything (the Equalizer "wake" bug is still there)..but I did notice the sound quality seems a bit odd....not as crisp as I remember (I have the 9 speaker upgrade).

My question is...where can I download and revert back to the previous firmware?

Interesting article related to the last fix, if anyone is interested!

Hackers Remotely Kill a Jeep on the Highway—With Me in It | WIRED

I can't seem to download from the Uconnect update site this time. It's telling me my VIN is invalid, and I've typed it, cut and pasted it directly from my Chrysler Financial login page, had other people type it for me, I'm going insane. Tried every browser I have, turned off all blockers.

Seriously? They haven't fixed that bug yet either??!! I thought someone else reported that it had been fixed.

I have the RAX JB, so I can't test until they update (soon I'm guessing) but reports like this make me in no hurry to be a guinea pig anyway.

So disappointed that the Equalizer and Shuffle issues haven't been addressed yet. Development/bug fixing is really slow at FCA. But hey, at least we're less likely to be hacked now!

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

I wonder if the immediate "fix" for 14.25.5 (that's the previous version- right)- was to immediately kill the remote web server for those radios. Around 7/17 my remote functions stopped working. All I get now is timeout errors even though i can see i have 3g service on the screen. (On occasion I also get the circle with the line through it for "do not" where the 3g symbol should be on the radio's screen.) From the link it says
Quote:
And thanks to one vulnerable element, which Miller and Valasek won’t identify until their Black Hat talk, Uconnect’s cellular connection also lets anyone who knows the car’s IP address gain access from anywhere in the country.
and i also noticed from digging in the engineering menu that right now i show NO IP address. unsure if it used to do that. So looks like the immediate fix was to kill the vehicles internet until the new software is installed?

The EQ bug is in the EQ/amp/radio guts, not the uconnect. Another forum for Durango's has info (not sure if it's polite to post links to another forum). Dodge and the radio people are aware and working on a fix- it's not clear how the updated firmware will be delivered. Apparently they corrected it in the beats firmware.

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

also- i love how the hackers figured out how to update the firmware wirelessy over tghe net but FCA is too stupid....

If they weren't stuck in 1974 they could have just pushed this critical security update to every vehicle silently and then only people who never venture into sprint wireless territory would need to be contacted.

Also, honestly not sure how it's only a RR TSB and not a recall- i guess maybe killing the connection to the effected cars as above was the interim solution to avoid that need. But letting someone kills my brakes, steer the car, kill the tranny seems pretty much like something that requires recall....

I had the same problem. Tried multiple browsers on multiple computers for multiple weeks. It was driving me crazy too!

Then I temporarily disabled my anti-virus (avast free) and everything worked immediately. I hope this helps for you.

If you open the EQ when the vehicle is on, touch the bass up one. You will hear a significant increase in the sound quality. You can then bump the bass back down to the level you had it set at. Essentially, moving one of the factors on the EQ somehow "wakes up," for lack of a better phrase, the EQ and makes the sound so much better. It is most noticible on MP3, CD, or HD radio since the audio quality of Sirius / XM is rather flat and poor anyways. Let me know if you notice it. Once I noticed how much better the unit is with the EQ "woken up", I can't drive without doing it. Sorry if we just added a new compulsion for you. There may be a support group we can all join.
Well thanks for feeding my Jeep OCD! Mine has the EQ "wake up" problem and I didn't even know it until now! I'll add this step to punching the ECO button every time I start the Jeep.

If you read this you may not want to. Once hackers know this is possible, we might become targets of a "fun game." Not a risk I want to take.

Thanks alot man! Do you know which one is the previous firmware version for my 15 GC?

Ps. The vehicle got delivered to me early May of this year..so I'm guessing it was updated to the most recent firmware (before the one that got released yesterday)

Fixing the EQ "wake up" and the pixel that lights up below the odometer every time I go into reverse would fix the strange bugs for me. Don't know why shifting into "sport" then back to "drive" works to clear up that pixel, but it does. Just one more added step to keep the "bug compulsions" away

Re: BREAKING NEWS - New uconnect update for MY13 & MY14

Anyone know the exact file name version of the previous firmware (I am reverting back since I feel the audio quality is not as crisp as before)? I have a 15 JGC Altitude (9 Speaker upgrade if that makes a diff)
