UCONNECT 8.4 Software

Where can the public get a copy of the UCONNECT 8.4 complete software besides always going to the dealer?

Also is their a version out there that has been modified and performs and looks better than the orginal?

Buy a premium membership [cheaper than a quart of good oil].

As for the aftermarket hacks, now THERE is a good idea.
Uconnect is QNX, from RIM/Blackberry.
The tricky part would be figuring out if there is additional imbedding done or dividing up of memory areas such that if you modified the wrong area kaboom.

Suspect somehow there may be some tiny fonts in your warranty regarding this being a no-no, but it would be difficult to think you could screw it up worse than it is already.

Re: UCONNECT 8.4 Software

I cracked open the 8.4an iso file.. there are a bunch of swf's and my first though was sweet!!! but upon extracting them.. there seems to be nothing of 'value' to edit... not even the jeep logo. So i dont know if the update has all the files? or just the updated data.

would love to be able to tweak some of the graphics

Re: UCONNECT 8.4 Software

If your trying to do the update, you don't extract any files. Put the ISO file on a cleaned (empty) USB stick. Update to 13.19.0 is latest file.

Re: UCONNECT 8.4 Software

I know that. I was only curious as to what was in the ISO. And to see if there was any way to edit some of the graphics. Nothing obvious in the update.
