Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

ImageUploadedByJeepGarage1461903286.496433.jpg I am assuming this will provide the ability to call up Siri using the steering wheel button like on the 2016 models.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

Just updated my 2014 GC with 8.4an system and now can invoke Siri using the steering wheel command button. Haven't had a chance to play with it too much yet since I just ran out to the parking lot during lunch and did it.

It is a relatively simple process to do yourself, or alternatively you can have your dealer do it for you.
Go to Uconnect® Software Update - Update your Uconnect® System and put in your VIN # to check for eligibility.
Download the software and follow instructions to extract the files onto a flash drive. Printable instructions guide you through the specific steps that you MUST follow in order to install the upgrade. Failure to do so may result in the radio getting gummed up and having to redo or even visit the dealer for a reset.

The process took about 20-25 minutes and now results in the following.

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

I could use some help on this update as I dont want to screw this up.

Im using a Mac and am eligible for the update on my 2015 Overland. I cant use the Akamai assist so I have to download the file directly from my browser. When I do so, I get the following Zip file which when clicked opens up the .iso attachment (see below)


When I click on the .iso file, it opens up into this:


What am I supposed to drag into my thumbdrive? Is it that entire "SWDL 3.iso" or am i supposed to drag a specific folder from the 2nd photo above?

Re: Siri update now available for 2014 8.4an

The thumb drive will need to be bootable so I believe you do need to follow the steps. Just dragging the file to the drive is probably not enough but the install should probably just fail if you try it that way...

Does not need to be bootable just needs to be formatted in FAT filesystem.

once you format the usb drive to fat in disk utility drag the "swdl.iso" to the flash drive. (take the space and 3 out of the name) looks like you unzipped it a few times or something so it appended a number at the end. Then stick it in the usb slot next to the sd card reader with the ignition in the on position (car doesn't need to be running but it does take 15-20 min) you will see a message pop up once the headunit detects the update file after a min or so. (not longer than 3 min)

Im pretty sure I did exactly as you said. The file size was 682.8mb that was transferred onto my USB. Does the above photo look accurate and the file size?

Edit: I have no idea why its showing an April 13, 2016 time stamp. You were correct in that I downloaded the file more than once. I dragged the first ISO file I downloaded today. Downloaded it today
