It is a crime this thread has not been given more attention. If we could do-away with the Uconnect overall lands replace it with Android, that would certainly be ideal.

Android has already been made to run on the same SoC TI DM3730 here http://elinux.org/Android_on_OMAP

Have you seen this?

This is exactly what I am looking for. But they want a crazy $560 US for it. #SmokingCrack

The mindset in the car industry is, obviously, not the same as in software industry. You and I see a "better way" to do something but what they see is another version of "computer people nonsense". Most of the decision makers in the industry still see it all as "car radio". Even if they will go for android automotive, they will make the same mistakes.

Sorry guys i haven't been back to this thread in awhile, i haven't had much time to work on my jeep, i had worked through de-compiling maybe 50% of the compiled lua(? i cant remember ill have to double check) scripts i was going to post the de-compiled versions of the scripts for others but i became busy with work and family and on the other hand is it even legal for me to post de-compiled proprietary code?

Also very interested in this, I have a 2015 Cherokee.

I've been looking at all the solutions out there for adding functionality and haven't found a perfect solution yet.
There are dongle solutions with video receivers, (UCONNECT LOCKPICK AIR V2) but this doesn't allow the use of the touch screen
There are the RAX jailbreak products that are just software and add a few camera switching solutions and disable lockouts.
There are complete android systems that patch into the resistive touchscreen. This option is interesting but requires an invasive hardware mod.

I would love to see things like;
  • unlocking the NAV on the nav-enabled units
  • changing the default options on certain vehicle functions
    • reverse the engine auto-start/stop functionality to off by default
    • set the seat heaters to low by default)
    • disable lockouts for cameras/GPS
    • switch to camera on-demand
  • a web browser would be nice.
  • android and/or ios device mirroring.
