Tonight there's gonna be a jailbreak...

‘ A new jailbreak for John Deere tractors rides the right-to-repair wave ‘


‘ Sick Codes, an Australian who lives in Asia, presented at DefCon in 2021 about tractor application programming interfaces and operating system bugs. After he made his research public, tractor companies, including John Deere, started fixing some of the flaws. “The right-to-repair side was a little bit opposed to what I was trying to do,” he tells WIRED. “I heard from some farmers; one guy emailed me and was like ‘You’re @#$%& up all of our stuff!’ So I figured I would put my money where my mouth is and actually prove to farmers that they can root the devices."
This year, Sick Codes says that while he is primarily concerned about world food security and the exposure that comes from vulnerable farming equipment, he also sees important value in letting farmers fully control their own equipment. “Liberate the tractors!” he says. ‘

Oh, not me, I just bought a pre-computer one (model year 1999). Does everything I expect, mostly without a hiccup.

We have a John Deere 5065M 65hp cab tractor, our smallest cab tractor. It's a Tier 3 emissions tractor, EGR but no DPF. It occasionally throws a Red Ring of Death and just stops forward motion altogether. We had a mechanic look at it and the first thing he does is hook up a laptop to it SMH. It's never recorded a single code in the computer that will show up on the computer. The latest recommendation was to change the hydraulic filter and we did and seems to be helping.

It pulls pretty good for 65hp tractor.
Son running it, cutting 9' at a time.

Nice color. I’d seen it before from an earlier post.
