I'll post a video when I get my download link with the entire process.

In the meantime, watch this video --

Normally in 24 hrs you will be approved for the special purchase rights and you will have to clear your cookies and log back into your account.

the pricing will be as follows:
Bronze 148 usd 108 euro includes the lock out and VES option if equipped from factory
Silver. 249 usd 179 euro includes the RAX-Jailbreak software and 1 harness and 1 camera
Gold. 449 usd 325 euro includes the lockout software and 1 harness and 2 cameras since the jeeps have different cargo/brake light it will not come with the brake light assembly as mentioned in the videos
/QUOTE]

Ordered the silver and had a rough time of it, but I think they have things worked out now. It's hard to tell as they are not very customer service oriented but they do respond to your email questions, but not in the nicest way. Here's are few observations that may help others, hopefully, they will have a smoother process than I was/am having. FYI, I expect to have to do a little bit of extra work in return for getting an early adopter discount, but ...

Here we go:
I created a second account on the customtronix site to make it a forum account as suggested by imblackedout. Never received an email confirmation, not sure if it was supposed to be quick or take a business day to receive it. Emailed them back the next day and explained the situation.
It then took a while, but eventually they got my new account set up with the forum discount and then a little time to get the actual discount to show up on the website info page.

Asked them to confirm if the silver package included a camera as it didn't show this on their website, but according to imblackedout it did include the camera. Took a while to get that straightened out as well, but yes it does include a camera.

Ordered the silver package and selected the paypal option and the order page came up with a page stating "Thank you. Your order is validating.". Nothing else happened on the order page. Again, it took a while to get this figured out, but at some point I logged back in and then I got to another page that had my order info and a link to actually make a payment.

Be aware that shipping to the US is an additional 30 Euros, this is added in when you select the silver package.

Not to long after that, I received my download email with the license token and a link to 4 video's on youtube as well as a reminder not to ask them stupid questions.

Download the software and expanded the RAR file but there was no readme file or any instructions that came with it. The download has two ISO files as well so my first response was to email customtronix "again" with a question about which ISO file to use. I then received a rather abrupt response telling me to read the manual . Hmmm, RTFM, well, there is no link to a manual, and it's not in the download, maybe they meant, sit and watch all the youtube videos until you find the one with the install instructions. Personally, I have no desire to watch any more Magnus video's and not sure why a brief step-by-step install document is not available with a $300 purchase. Something similar to the jeep installation\upgrade instructions would be great.

imblackedout can you help get them to put an install doc together.

Hopefully, the process will get better; I know imblackedout is working with them to improve the communication with forum members and I'm hoping that everyone runs smoothly from here on in and that we have a solid product here.

I just registered and got the confirming email immediately......

Well this question I have asked Magnus but did not get an answer only that it is a VERY SPECIAL CRAZY PRICE for us here at the Garage since we have helped him to test and make sure things are working well.

and as you see it is a great price for the silver version with the cam so grab it while you can

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

The instructions are fairly simple

down load the utility using chrome, IE has issues with the site (may take approx. 30 min) to a folder on the HD

down load the personal tokens to a folder on the HD

you need a USB stick (4 GB) erased and ready

after the DL unzip the files to a folder

copy the swdl-fo and the swdl along with the version # file to the main root directory on the stick (the version # file is only that a reference for us to know the version)

copy your tokens into a folder named (tokens) on the memory stick

then go to your car place the car in accessory power mode then after the system is fully up and it shows you have 3G service lower right of the display for this is normally when the system is fully booted

insert the usb into the usb reader

you will get a msg that you have version # xxxxxx and that version #xxxxx is available do you wish to update .... touch yes

system will reboot and then will tell you that you will get the same msg again but the ver# will be the same tell it no to that update and then you will be asked about the options that you have from the tokens.

after each of these these it may ask you if you wish to upgrade the main version again but you do not need to reinstall each time just tell it no or wait and for it to skip it.

after the installation the system will reboot again remove the usb stick at this time

after the reboot you will need to power off the car and open the door to allow the full shut down of the system it will take 60-90 seconds for a full shut down.

reactivate the cars power and let the system reboot


some of the uconnect features may not be available such as 911 and contacting uconnect support will come back but the length of time depends on the number of bars that the car is getting from the Sprint uconnect service and how long you have kept the car on during this time

it maybe in my mind but it seems to update faster if you have your phone connected through Bluetooth also this seems to allow the apps to update faster.

one thing that I was told by my Jeep dealer when I took the car in for an adjustment was to always remove features that they can notice such as the front camera so you can either remove that feature by reinserting the usb stick and it will ask you if you wish to remove the features or if you are having issues with the computer system Magnus can provide you with a roll back that will place the entire system back to factory clean.

beyond that just use it and have pleasure of its benefits

I hope that this will help

if there is additional questions you can leave msgs here or send me a pm


this youtube video is very good to watch the only feature that he talks about is the srt option which is not available unless your car is an srt.

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

Hey Guys!!

I need your help! I want to get some idears of what features you would like, Of course some of them will never see the light but itīs good to get some input for what you guyīs would like to have. Please feel free to just brainstorm

Im looking into:

Chimeīs ( I know for a fact that we will be able to fix )

Revcam (make it not turn off in higher speed, this is much harder since itīs not controlled by the nav, If you cut the Lin bus to the camera it will stay on but you will lose the overlay (park guide). If you can live without the overlay itīs really easy to just remove the Lin bus. We have done this but havenīt checked for any faulty codes with the Witech, it could be good to check that first before you play around)

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

can you implement changes to the screen behind the dashboard? A small triangle warning icon on the digital screen would be nice for when there is blind spot detection. I've seen the icon message, but it is associated with BSM failure not regular operations.

It would be great if you could figure out how to cross-breed the Australian version that has speed cameras with the north American one that doesn't...and load a database while at it. For an added price of course.

the blind spot thing seems like a bug fthat they probably will fix then, the oproblem we have if thereīs something they are going to fix we donīt want to spend time on it.

Will look into the speedcameras, we have the speedcame data base but we have to see if itīs possible to implement it to the software, these features are signed with a specific key and itīs more or less impossible to hack that. best thing would be if it was available to buy as a upgrade! then it would be like stealing candy from a child

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

Well, I ordered the silver package. Got an email from Customtronix saying my order is being processed. Got an email from PayPal that payment was completed. Then got another email from Customtronix 45 minutes later stating order status changed from pending to on-hold. Back to Customtronix website and my order shows processing. Never received the license email nor links to any downloads. So at thus point I don't know the real status of my order. Emailed Customtronix but will probably take a day before I hear back from them. Disappointed with the order process.

Guys need to be a little patient as the software is created for your vehicle ( VIN number associated with token)

The process will get better, be patient, it is a good product.
