Hacking ECU

I'm linux guy, do advanced networking and security, thus know how packet inspection. to protect people. (in order to protect i need to know how to attack).
however I'm newbie in car mechanism

since the cars are all linux, i'm pretty sure i can tweak them all performance settings and about to try anytime soon.

since no one provide or share the document on it. (most of them just sell the device on web)
it's going to be a long journey for me as i would need to do all by myself and write down the packets on each single action done from the car.

My question is,
1. is this called ECU tune-up as well? like I hook up the laptop and hijack the code in the middle then forward my demand code to the car.
the main purpose is to unlock the engine. or if special manufacture code required, then my workarounds will be the program the embedded device put it in the car.

Ok, first of all, you don't "hack" the ECU per se, you just modify a 3D array which contains the engine management values. This is OS independent, and the software to upload and modify the array is already widely available. This doesn't requires any programming knowledge, but rather engineering.

If you really want to do something, I advise you look into how to hack the UConnect system to get rid of that annoying "accept" dialogue we have to press everytime the car is started.

+1 on that "Accept" prompt.

And it'd be nice to have the side mirrors auto-fold on lock/unlock.

Or even better, figure out a way for us to upgrade to the new UConnect....

That is pretty much impossible (without a lot of time and effort). Getting rid of the "accept" button is way simpler. It's just a bit of debugging and some patching (in theory).
