Default New UConnect 8.4 Lockpick RAM 2013up

Hi there!

An interesting information for all UConnect 8.4 owners (RAM 2013 and up). There will be a new lockpick on the market soon, made by Customtronix. The philosophy here is not to add additional hardware but to use, what the UConnect is able to do by itself and what is already enabled in other vehicles equipped with the uconnect 8.4.

I know, in the US the topic "radio conversion" is not as important as here in the EU, but nevertheless the new features added here might be interesting for you, too. Don't know, why the 2013/2014 RAM has no VES any more but other vehicles with the same UConnect have...

But enough words, just have a look:

Have fun!

Nobser

Does this system still require the 8.4 to be flashed by a dealership to enable rear camera or does the lockpick handle everything?

Regarding Customtronix: You will be able to flash it by yourself. Just take a USB stick and upgrade the system. Finished...

EDIT: I think I got you wrong... I don't know, what has to be done to get a rear camera working, that is not factory installed (ECU reprogramming etc.). The UConnect update of course will activate the rear camera video input if you put your RAM in reverse gear. But the Customtronix harness will not provide camera power, which is only avaliable in "R"...

EDIT2: Talked to Customtronix: You just need to update the UConnect unit to get the rear camera working. Nothing else to do.

From the recent newsletter (Customtronix, not Android ;-))

Hi,

Some Questions and Answers..
==============================
Q (Question)
- How much is hardware and how much is software (re-programming)?
A (Answer).
Its 99% a software solution + cable to install cameras and DVD.
---------------------------
Q
- How much (the price??)??
A
Will soon be available.
---------------------------
Q
- How do you re-program ?
A
Like the RAX conversion, via USB
---------------------------
Q
- How do you revert to stock (aside from removing the harness)?-
A
- Just remove the cable harness job done
---------------------------
Q
- How do you continue to upgrade the UCONNECT software with factory specs ? Or do you provide your own custom upgrades? Or do you revert to factory ...upgrade...and re-enable the Customtronix lockpick solution?
A
-You need our upgrades! we release new software same week as Chrysler, to disable it you can just take a official upgrade but will loose the patching (software lockpick). As this is just one part of our products to this unit we are on top of all new releases and even fixing some bugs they haven´t fixed.
---------------------------
Q
- Will the software you provide also disable the navigation screen keyboard lock so I can input navigation address while in motion?
- A
YES
---------------------------
Q
- Do you have the product advertised on your webpage?
A
- Not yet, we will release it during the coming week or so.
---------------------------
Q
- Could you e-mail me a copy of the installation instructions to assess for myself the complexity of the software installation?
A
- Software installation is just as the original original. the rest is more or less up to you since people tend to want to use their own stuff, we will release a common installation video in a few days
---------------------------

Hi !

While testing, some topics popped up which had been fixed and also some new features have been implemented. It also got a new name and is called "Jailbreaker" now.

So, here at first an updated version of the original video showing some of the new features:



And also something new for all of you still listening to compact discs and who forgot to order that option in their car:



I hope this stuff hits the market soon...

Norbert
