The new Gracenotes update is available for MyGig owners for the 2007-2010 JK (and other Chrysler owners) for US/Canada/Mexico only. This will not work on the 2011+ models! (The radios are completely different)
What is Gracenotes you ask.... Well Gracenotes is the on-board software running on the MyGig that correctly displays the Artist and Title of retail CD's. If you do not have a current version on you MyGig unit the screen will just display Track 1, Track 2, etc.
You can check your Gracenotes Database version by following these instructions:
Press the Menu button on the right side of the radio.
Press the System Setup on screen button.
Press the System Information on screen button.
The update is much larger file than the Operating System software so you are required to burn this to a DVD (a burnable CD will NOT work)
Now the Gracenotes update is VERY PICKY for some reason. In the past versions it been tough to get the raw files to burn to a disc that the MyGig recognizes. So I will recommend Roxio or NCH disc burning software to write the discs. (I have had no luck with NERO at all)
How do you know if you have a unusable DVD? After installing the DVD the screen will just say DATA for 5 minutes or more and never begin the install.
No matter what current version of the Gracenotes software you have on the MyGig at this time this version will over write it so there is no need to update in steps.
I have verified it burns fine and with Roxio or Express Burn Disc Burning Software by NCH. (Please do not use the standard burning software that came with your operating system. Very rarely will you get a successful burn.)
I have installed and verified operation with the Lockpick installed.

Raw File Instructions:
Unzip the files to your Hard drive and burn them to a DVD data disc:
When you burn the DVD it is recommended that you burn at 2x or 4x speed and make sure that multisession recording is disabled. (The Add More Files Later Option) DVD+R, DVD-R, or Dual Layer DVDs are acceptable.
1. For Version 4620 (US/CA/MX) - Name the CD to GN_4620 when burning it. (Recommended)
2. The DVD Root directory MUST contain only one (1) folder and one (1) file.. The root DVD directory structure is as follows:
Once the disc is burned with the method above.......
Do not attempt to install WITHOUT THE MOTOR RUNNING! (since this file is very large it can take up to 40 minutes to install!) If the MyGig looses power at anytime during the install you can forget about the MyGig ever working again!
It is VERY IMPORTANT to read the following instructions before you attempt to install. Failure to read could turn your pretty MyGig into a useless brick!
What ever you do do NOT remove the disc till the MyGig asks you to install the software a second time! This is the equivalent of the "Your installation is complete" window. Then you simply click "NO" then you can eject the disc.
