There is a sub thread, not much there but have spoken to a few people. There may *possibly* some custom mods posted down the road. I also have not problems providing updates for other Premium Members vehicles where I have that access.

As I have noted to others, I have had an extreme amount of flexibility recently but that isn't always the case. I just my own upgrade on my RHR in my Durango... IT WAS FACTORY and it is 2011, sad!

Re: 8.4 UConnect Update - Deconstructed

One thing that I've seen is that 13.15.4 was build on 4/9. This release 13.19 was build on 5/6. Seems like they are on a monthly release cycle.

Re: 8.4 UConnect Update - Deconstructed

There are also jpg files for splash screens for MB, VW and Mitsubishi although they are all saying: "Splash-Screen not available for: <blah>"

Re: 8.4 UConnect Update - Deconstructed

Reasonably sure the OS is QNX, a somewhat realtime version sorta like Linux.
Yup, at least according to QNX it is...

Re: 8.4 UConnect Update - Deconstructed

Ok, watched the video content and, well, the first couple in particular, pretty much sucked the life out of me for the afternoon.

I live on a popular rush hour "short cut" and witness near misses daily due to texting or speeding, and have a 2 yr old who is in the take of and run phase right now.

These are the types of PSAs that need to be on american TV, could care less who is offended!!

Re: 8.4 UConnect Update - Deconstructed

Here is what I have found out:

definitely QNX (6.5.0?) Same OS that runs the new blackberries.

The device looks for a DLink and Cisco network card when they boot. I forget the specific model but I have confirmed they do work when plugged in the USB port.

The IP of the device is 192.168.65.1 I think.

When linked up there are a lot of open ports, most of them don't seem to do anything but they do show as open. A couple are quite chatty. Mostly log stuff as far as I can tell.

The QConn exploit seems to be patched so no dice there.
The device uses I2c and a BMC to communicate with the truck, however the cluster display isnt dependant on it. In talking to on of the mechanics I think that it does have the ability to write to the Body control module. Basically there are codes they can put in that enable features in the vehicle its self.

QNX and the omap processor require the flash image to be signed and hashed before it will boot it or flash it, meaning anything that is done ROM wise will require a tethered solution unless the private cert is found.

Also from what I can tell the kernel, initrd, and the whole base OS ( including /etc) is compressed in some weird binary format thats proprietary to QNX. If that can be decompressed, might get lucky with a user name and password. The telnet and ssh ports are open and are responding.

The only way I can see in is through the network but I imagine that most things that may force root access or drop a shell would probably get caught by the strict watchdog they have. Its more advanced then the Linux standard watch dog. There is a specific reference to it in the LUA scripts; something about "petting the dog".

Will all this give me better gas mileage?

Things I found that were of interest:

SQLite3 databases containing siriusxm data for weather, traffic, fuel, ect

Splash screens for Ferrari, Lancia, Jeep, Dodge, ect.

Screen Calibration info. Makes me think there is a way to get into service/setup mode somehow.

There are files for an anti-theft keypad screen... Might turn out to be something like the Chevy concierge mode that locks out the phone book.

There is a REALLY strange video set to "Evanescence - My Immortal" with a bunch of accidents. Says Streetracing.ru and "Speeding. No one thinkgs big of you."

UI seems to be mostly on standard web platform with HTML, Flash, ect.

Leg work is being done via Lua and shell scripts.

SiLabs seems to be the partner for stereo tuner.

Seems some of the packages used are shared with Toyota's embedded OS.

Sierra Wireless devices used for the 3g connectivity

Partnership with airbiquity.com



I hope to get a stereo (once they are available) for testing. I think there is a lot of room for modding once root'd. I also fear, there is a lot of room for exploitation. Might lead to a cool blackhat talk...

Anyone else find anything else cool?

PS - cool Jeep and SRT files attached. Plus that strange video...
strange about this Video...........but not realy funny........but this are real life

Hi, i am also VERY interessted in modding the OS for the Uconnect. Personally i am not a QNX specialist, but i know a guy who is very familiar with this stuff.
Question: did you have any success with telnet to break into the filesystem, is it possible to change parameters or layouts?
As far as i saw from the images i downloaded it should be very easy to mod the system, but atm i dont know how to connet to the system direct. u said via an USB interface from DLink or cisco?!? which type? I think the Uconnect has a LOT of potential to expand its functionality (Internet, Movies,...) but sowewhere we have to start... BTW, i have the Uconnect in a 2013 Fiat Freemont, which is the european Version of the Dodge Journey. Hope 2 hear from you, lets stay in touch for HACKING this great device ;-)
