Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

Right now everything works EXCEPT the SRT app. Uconnect recognizes my (non-SRT) Jeep shouldn't have the SRT App and deletes it right after installation. All stock Uconnect apps (iHeart radio, slacker, Pandora, etc) work perfectly. The "lockout killer" part of the jailbreak also works great. AND if you truly want to go back to stock, the "rollback" software also works as advertised.

Customizing this thing has a LOT of potential and Magnus/Customtronix are JUST getting started!

Awesome thanks. This will be one of my first mods when my GC comes in. I ordered the rear seat entertainment center so it will be fun to use all three screens for a movie.

Re: new lockpick for the 8,4 uconnect, 99% software

As this thread seems to have died and I haven't received a response to question above, I decided to go ahead and buy the bronze today. I registered on their site and indicated I was from jeepgarage since it appears to ask if you were directed there from a forum.

Evidently they don't service the USA at this time???

Text is a poor form of communication and I am sure I took this email the wrong way, but here it is...

Hi,

I have canceled your order and downgraded your account to a standard forum shopper account.

Currently we have no contract with any American forum.

Currently we do not serve USA. When we start to offer JailBreak for the US market you will get a email.

First, not sure how you can say the thread has died, I just added to it 5 days ago!!

I admit I never saw your first question, had to go back and look. Dowload link came quickly, almost immediately after I gave them the information (VIN and trim level) they needed.

To translate the mail above....They currently are not selling the JB in the US because of a problem getting the SRT App to peacefully coexist with Uconnect here. So far I can EITHER get Uconnect apps (Pandora, iHeart Radio, Slacker) to work OR I can get the SRT app to work, but not both. When Uconnect is active, it deletes the SRT app from non-SRT vehicles. When Uconnect is "blocked" the SRT app works, but none of the Uconnect apps work (including ASSIST).

They've been working toward getting the SRT app working here as well, I've been testing for them, but so far, no luck. Magnus was debating on releasing Bronze here w/o the SRT app for now and POSSIBLY adding it later IF they can get it going again. I do not know what the status of that is, but it may be they are getting close to a solution and are waiting, I don't know the exact status of the US release, I haven't discussed that recently with Magnus.

Serious language barrier going on. He doesn't have a contract with JeepGarage, I'm thinking he was referring to a discount, you were simply saying where you found out about them. Again, language barrier. They are SO MUCH better at customer service than they sound because of the language issue. I was pissed at first too, until I got to know Magnus and understood his sense of humor and what he was trying to say.

Bottom line: Hold tight, I don't think a US version is too far off. Either w/o SRT or HOPEFULLY with it if they get it fixed. The software does the job PERFECTLY for me, that is you don't even know it's there, you can just use all the "motion blocked" features. I've briefly played with the SRT app (before Uconnect deletes it) and it looks like "fun", some cool gauge views too, but not super practical other than those gauges which you can get with any OBD2 app and dongle. I don't even remember what the gauges were...coolant temp, oil temp and 2 others. SRT guys will have to chime in, it's just the factory app.

Hope that helps!

Thank you.

I could care less about the SRT app or any camera stuff. I want navigation in motion. My unit doesn't understand my mild southern accent.

I have emailed Magnus and hope he will come to the rescue.

He's very quick to respond, thanks for the update! You'll be happy once you get all the details squared away, it works great.

And if it's any consolation, *I* probably can't understand your southern accent either.

To go along with what zhe_wiz has stated I 100% agree.

The contract that is being spoke of with a forum is designed for the Euopean market.

The us market is about to be released and there will be many changes in our US version from the past\european version that will be better for us than has been spoke of in the past including a price changes and bundles that you will enjoy so please be patient with them in this time period you will not be sorry.

I am a beta tester for them and I have it operating with the harness kit and additional front camera, I am considering installing a seperate rear camera due to the limitations of the factory cam power shutting off at driving speeds. Which limits your watching your load at those speeds this can not be changed through software.

The front cam and the unlocking of the lockout features I am enjoying greatly.

Waiting right now will be a benefit and a value to you, as in the videos on youtube this product is amazing at what it does.

The harness in the kit is beyond my words of very professional and simple to install this shows the most of their ability when you open the package that you will not need to hack or destroy your factory wiring.

You will also feel secure that you have a roll back option now also incase you need to tske your car in for service that there will not be the chance of the dealer saying you have done modifications that voids the warranty this is a major in my eyes allowing easier breathing.

Just be prepared for great things in the near future and savings for the USA market you will be happy that you have not went with any other system on the market.

I went to college upstate.
I've had my share of Matt's, Genny Light, and Oly Splits. We'd communicate just fine.

My problem with most voice recognition programs is the sounds of soft e and soft i

Here is a snapshot of my front view cam at the bottom of the screen you can see the plate holder so you really have the advantage of knowing how close to an object you are
