Good question. Our Cherokee has fewer Uconnect issues than our Grand. It stays in shuffle, EQ doesn't seem to have the "sleep' issue, etc. I did not check to see what the official change list was, but I suspect the security flaw was the biggest change.

I haven't driven it since the update either (it's my wife's car) so I don't know if there were any noticeable changes or not.

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

Anyone else have an issue with the channel art on XM doesn't match some channels?

After the upgrade Road trip radio (147) had a "lite 106" channel image. After 3 minutes the image changed to playboy radio with the bunny. While I find it funny, my wife doesn't seem amused :-)

Thanks

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

UPDATE 2

Success! I installed 15.26.1 successfully by using a 32GB flash drive. I did have to restart my iPhone 5 in order for Podcasts to sync and play properly. I haven't found any new features on UConnect.

Chrysler's failure to specify that a 32GB flash drive is the largest flash drive compatible with the update software is sloppy communication and poor customer service.

UPDATE 1
Jeep says that only a flash drive with at last 4GB and NO more than 32GB can be used. I will try a smaller flash drive.

FIRST POST
I downloaded the update on my 16-month old MacBook Pro. I turned off virus protection. Using a new 128 GB flash drive with FAT 32 format, I tried five times to install the update. Every time the installation in my 2014 Jeep Grand Cherokee failed in Unit 5 at 35% completion. The Jeep's display then showed

mmc.la:ERROR:qkcp failed.
Please remove USB stick to reset.

I am awaiting Chrysler's UConnect specialist's call tomorrow.

Anyone have suggestions?

My guess is that it's the Uconnect update many of us have already installed. Being active on this forum, we sometimes forget that tens of thousands of owners are completely unaware of problems like this, and need to be personally contacted, and provided with a fix or recall notice.

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

I agree; I predict it's the same update we've all just downloaded from the web site and installed ourselves. Doesn't make sense that they'd have a different update on the USB stick from what's available to d/l on the web site. Oh wait...this is FCA...

I just want a free USB stick. Presuming it isn't a piece of crap.
Have a fairly extensive collection of logo'd ones, some of which are old enough not to be able to hold a single MP3.

The update itself? Already got it to install.

Good point though, that if you count the number sold and the members of this or related forums, would be extremely tiny percentage.

That and the equalizer having to be "woken up" every time are two biggest annoyances.
Is shuffle retained when using USB?

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

Mine would not run the update off of either of my two 16GB SanDisk Cruzer sticks. Both were clean and I did a Quick Format before extracting the file to them. My screen showed a music note and told me something to the effect that the device could not be played.


I had a 2GB SanDisk Cruzer laying around so I Quick Formatted it and extracted the file to it and the update ran just fine.


Both of the 16GB sticks are less than a year old work just fine on my Dell computer for both reading and writing files. I cannot understand why the 8.4AN thought they were music sticks. They have never had or been used for music files. They 2GB stick is over 5 years old and it worked just fine.

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

Just read in our paper that FCA will be sending everyone a flash stick with the hacking patch as a recall.
