Ok. Kind of confused. Registered at the Customtronix site. However, where is everyone finding the silver package. I have an RA4. Thanks for the help and this is a very exciting mod.

I paid it and went to bed. At 0930 EDT, I received an email with the token, a download link and links to 4 YouTube videos with instructions on how to install it. At 0950 EDT, I received an email from FedEx with my tracking information. This is an unbelievable turnaround. Very fast!

One note that might help get your order processed faster and without confusion: The screen shot below is from the Customtronix website. I copied the 6 questions into the Order Info field on the last screen of the order process and answered each of them individually when I first submitted the order. This is important because this information is used to build your software!


Here is the first half of the process for getting it in the car --

I went to Office Depot and bought this:


Put the USB drive into a USB slot on your computer and open Explorer (My Computer). Right click on the new USB drive and select format. Format with these options:


Now that the USB drive is ready, we can get the Customtronix software.

Here is the email that I received:


Click the link in the email and it takes you to a Mega DL site. Click Download.


The file is a .rar file. I used 7-zip to open the archive. You can get 7-Zip at 7-Zip if you do not already have it. After you've installed 7-zip, right click on your downloaded rar file, hover over 7zip and then select Open Archive.


Click Extract and navigate to the USB drive that you formatted above.

Once the extract is finished (It took a couple minutes on my machine), open the USB drive in Explorer (My Computer) and open the tokens folder. Drag the token attachment from your email to this folder.

Close the USB Explorer window. Go back to the main Explorer window and right click on your USB Drive and select "Eject."

The USB drive is now ready for installation in the car. I'll upload a video of that in a bit.


Awesome work my friend!!! Im very happy that you put this up!, itīs SUPER cool that you share your point of view. Itīs pretty easy to do if you foollow the instructions, some times people are to eager to get the JB in he car.

One common problem is that some times Windows is saving the files without the "+" in the token file, for example it should be

12345678912345678+lockout.token

but the computer saves it like this

12345678912345678 lockout.token ( THIS WILL NOT WORK)

One way is to rename it and ad "+". or rename it to just

12345678912345678.token

the reason why why we have the "+lockout" is for us and you to see what features you have, but itīs already in the token.

I'm quoting this for emphasis. I was a beta tester and had an issue with the token file name not working because my version of windows was renaming the token file. I figured it out with some trial and error and a therapy phone call from Zhe Wiz.

I only have the bronze, but it's been running flawlessly since 14.25 was released and Magnus sent me the link less than 48 hours later.

Thanks Magnus for what you've done here and putting up with us impatient, rude Americans.

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

Sorry I haven't had much time to answer questions here lately. SO NICE to see this mod getting the attention it deserves. GREAT work from Customtronix on the product, and people are chipping in for some nice documentation to go along with it!

For camera install, I mostly followed f1anatic's install on another thread (I think he just linked to it above). I pulled the RCA connector and wire from the cabin into the engine bay using a coat hanger, some duct tape and (don't laugh!) some vaseline. Popped that sucker right through. :-) To get power I moved the fuse which decides if the rear 12v power supply is powered all the time or only on ignition to the full time slot. I then used the part time slot to get power for the camera. Ground came from two bolts right in front of the fuse block (passenger side engine bay).

As you can see from pix (posted earlier in this thread) I mounted mine high in the grill and set back in. Good news is, it's nicely recessed. Bad news is, I can't see my bumper. I had to use a dremel to do a little bit of grill work to get it there. I'd really like to mount it in the gap between the headlight and the hood located on the inside of the headlight. Would be a good place for a bracket I think that would keep it hidden, but yet still allow view of the bumper. For now, I'm leaving it where it is. Will take me a few tries to get used to where the front bumper is, but after that I don't think my inability to see it will matter.

Thanks Magnus for a GREAT product, and for really taking care of Jeep Garage with the latest pricing. GET THE SILVER or GOLD NOW, the price is fantastic!!

If anyone needs help with anything, feel free to drop me a PM. I've even been know to make calls to help out. I can't always help, but I'm always happy to try!!

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

I want to purchase the silver, but only use the bronze software setup until I have time (and confidence) to add the front camera. Does the harness have to be installed for the silver software to work or will the software basically give me bronze setup until I install the hardware?

The software will work without the harness and cams. You will see a blue screen for the cam inputs until the harness is installed.

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

Two additional features I would love to see in future releases:

1. Option to turn off "eco" mode when the car is started. (default for my Jeep is "On". Pain to turn it off every time when I start the car)

2. Option to fold the side mirrors when the engine gets turned off.
