How to apply a hack via SSH

1) Connect your computer and Mazda to the same network, either via wifi or a USB adapter.

2) The car will obtain an IP address via DHCP.

  • Most routers will predictably assign IP addresses in order (first device is X.X.X.2, next is X.X.X.3), so it may be possible to guess the IP
  • Otherwise, you can find the car using a network scanner such as nmap
  • nmap -p 22 192.168.1.0/24
Mac / OS X

1) Open Terminal.app (found in Applications>Utilites>Terminal.app)

2) SSH to your Mazda by entering the following command into Terminal, using the car's IP address

 ssh root@192.168.0.xx  

3) If both the computer and the car are on the same network, and you have entered the correct IP address, you will be prompted to enter the password. Type jci and press enter. (This will not show as you type.)

4) The username in terminal will change from your computer's name to /tmp/root #.

5) Copy and paste code for hacks such as Disable Speed Restriction and Reduce Disclaimer Time into the command line. Copy and run them one line at at time.

Windows

1) Open PuTTY.
2) In the Host Name box, enter the car's IP address and click Open.

  • The first time you connect to the car, you may be prompted to accept its security certificate

3) Enter username root and password jci
4) Copy and paste code for hacks such as Disable Speed Restriction and Reduce Disclaimer Time into the command line. Copy and run them one line at at time.
