Thanks for this reply but I am I little confused, what do you mean:

" I moved that fuse from the "only on with ACC" side to the "always on" side and used the "Only on with ACC" to power the front camera"

Can you elaborate I little more, maybe some photos? I found the fuse but I cannot find the "alwys on" side. Thanks.

The two pole fuse is in a spot that has three openings, giving it two possible positions. It can be closer to the windshield or closer to the grill. He simply moved the fuse to the position closest to the windshield, which keeps his rear outlet always on, and gives him a hole to put his wire in that only receives power when the vehicle is on. Does that make more sense? It took me a while to realize that the fuse could be moved between two different positions. In mine, it's #90/91

The yellow fuse in the F90/F91 slot can be shifted. You'll see when you look at it. When it's in the two slots closest to the front of the vehicle, the rear 12v outlet is on when the ignition is on. When the fuse is in the middle slot plus the slot closest to the rear of the vehicle, that outlet is always powered. That keeps the front slot open so you can plug a spade into that slot and connect the red cam wire.

Edit: FlyNavy beat me to it!! :-)

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

Hey guys,

I just applied the RAX Jail Break to my AUS spec 2014 Diesel Laredo. The process is very simple and all works as expected. I haven't connected the front cam yet. My harness and front cam are estimated to arrive on Tuesday. I will be using the cargo cam input to mirror my android phone like others have done.

Cheers,
Chris

Guys things like this is also what developers like to see also.

Not only troubles that one or two has but the success that the silent ones have also.

If you have installed even part of your install let everyone know what you think if you have problems give me a shout in a pm lets find out what is going on.

I am a beta tester and from day 1 I was impressed and this keep getting better.

Let us help you through things here in the JG for this is how and why Magnus is offering these prices to the club so that WE can support our members and keep his support load down some for things are normally simple fixes.

Lets let him develop as we enjoy our jeeps

Tony

Does anyone know what the deal is with uConnect updates? Will Customtronix notify existing customers of a new update, with a link to the updated Jail Break download?

Not sure what the official policy is, but that's how it worked during beta. Within a couple days after release we had the Customtronix edition.
