8.4 Uconnect RA4 latest version

Released on the 25 Feb, version nr 14.05.03

No change log, this is for RA4 (navigation) and RA3 (8.4 screen without navigation)

Its not yet avail on the UConnect site, unless you use a Canadian VIN nr, for some reason Chrysler is releasing this update in 3 phases, 1 was export units (done), 2 Canada (done) and 3 will be US (in the near future) so to spare you the trouble and the waiting time is the download link

RA4 Navigation Radio Link :https://mega.co.nz/#!SAYXFBzC!KOmdoM...7H5IL0SuVPa_jc

RA3 Radio Link (no-NAV): https://mega.co.nz/#!XcBnARST!vcZrGr...8sA55g6r1qb3Ik

Change log will be posted when I have it

Thanks for the upload, but the security-conscious engineer in me will recommend that people not install the version you've uploaded. At this point, we can't compare checksums of what's on mega and what's on chrysler. We can't verify that someone hasn't planted something nasty in there.

People should wait for the published US version and download over SSL at the chysler.com.

I'm also suspect about a Canadian version not jiving in the US, as there have been differences in the systems between the two

The software is the same across all the North american markets. US and Canadian

Upon installing the car runs a script where based on the VIN and the country of sale enables and disables some features. EX disabling apps in Canada because we do not have the cell network coverage ( Chrysler never found a partner to sign a contract to enable that functionality)

If u open the sdwl.iso you will see that are a ton of scripts and all the scrips start with recalling the VIN nr just for that purpose.

There is actually a script that can be modified to allow the keyboard while in motion!!!

Chrysler doesn't sign the update and compare checksums? Seriously?

I'm suspicious of this too, especially without a change log. I wonder if installing this could void my warranty? What if it bricks the Uconnect system? Thanks, but I think I'll wait.

Hi Diqster

1. I never said that Chrysler doesn't uses checksum's I said that the software is the same for north american units that's why its the same file for Jeep Grand Cherokee, Durango, Cherokee, SRT vehicles, Dart etc (don't believe me? check a TSB and see what vehicles are covered under the same update). The features are enabled and disabled based on the VIN and the country of sale.

2. If you want you can download the 2 files that I posted on mega from the official UConnect site, you just need to use a Canadian based VIN nr and then you can feel free to compare all the checksums by yourself. I just wanted to make it easier for ppl to have access to the latest firmware.

Here is my VIN that will get you access to the RA4 (8.4 with navigation) "EW197056" on UConnect website
Here is a another Canadian VIN that will get you access to RA3 (8.4 non navigation) "EW202841" on UConnect website

3. Chrysler is releasing this update in 3 phases, they started with European VIN's, fallowed by Canadian ones and in about 2 weeks US VIN's will get targeted for the download, the file for the Canada and US is THE SAME ONE

4. I am not Ukrainian, I am Romanian if that makes you feel better, and no I am not out of job, i was just trying to help this community

5. Any other questions?

Alex
