Once you have a Hijack Kernal installed, yes. There are two ways at present:

AutoHijack is a handy Python script written by Gary Boone that will check the Hijack website for new versions of the kernel. If it finds one that is newer than the one on your empeg, AutoHijack will automatically download and install it to your empeg. It requires a Python installation which can be had from python.org or activestate.com, and for a Hijack Kernal to be installed on your empeg/RioCar.

v5 of AutoHijack can be had from the downloads section of Riocar.org. Follow the instructions in the README file, and you should be good to go.

Jemplode, the opensource Java based emplode clone, now includes the ability to autoupdate Hijack. Simply go to Tools -> Options, and check "Autoupdate Hijack"... make sure you have the right Hijack Mk version for your player, and everytime you sync, Jemplode will check to see if there's a new Hijack, and update if necessary.
