Re: Scary - Jeep Hacked!

I have my uconnect jailbreak with an apple tv and cargo cameras so No way I'll be updating the software. They can hack me all they want but I'm not getting rid of my system the way it is right now.

I am with you on this one. I don't think anybody just driving by can hack your vehicle. They where only able to hack and control the vehicle once they sat inside the vehicle.if someone really wants to attack any vehicle they could no matter what make and model. Also people aremore likely to try to take over your phone since they can access you bank accounts and credit cards. Not sure why people are freaking out over this. Y2K all over again

Re: Scary - Jeep Hacked!

It will be nice to have a free flash drive to use for anything else after installing the upgraded software.


I also still want to know the location of the Sprint parts.

Good luck waiting for a flash drive that they will never send you. Why would they send one to you to do the update yourself when they would rather send you to the dealership to have the Recall done. It takes 20 minutes to do it and then you can delete the file on your own flash drive.

It's more like a 20-30 minute process:

It took about 10 minutes to download the zip file and unzip it to a flash drive. The it was another 15-20 minutes to do the update. I downloaded the original file to the flash drive I used. The site claims you need a 2GB flash drive, but my ISO file once unzipped was less than 600MB. It's possible some models have more components so the size recommendation was a one size fits all thing.

When you start the update in the Jeep, it claims 30, but it was about half that time. It's possible it might take longer in a model with more affected options, though, since several of the parts passed through really fast compared to others on mine.

It should be pointed out, the brakes could still possibly be accessed without Autopark, since it's not clear exactly how they did that trick. Autopark was shown on the EVIC, but the computer also controls the brakes for traction control, stability control, hill start assist, hill decent control and adaptive cruise control. Those all happen without any input from the driver, and all but the last two are standard on all models. The Hill Decent Control is only on models with a low range mode in 4WD and Adaptive Cruise Control is optional on all models, as far as I know. Traction control is on all models and turns itself on automatically upon starting the vehicle. Hill Start Assist is a menu option.

Right now, steering can only be down through the Autopark function. Does the Grand Cherokee even offer that option or is that only on the newest Cherokee?

It's up to you whether to do the update, but it really wasn't that hard to do. Just make sure you leave the drive connected until the system says "Hands Free System Available" after the reboot that follows the install. That should prevent the error message that the system is not authorized that might pop up if you disconnect the drive earlier.
