Never had black screen. got my truck june 2012 and it was blue.
This also isnt a Chrysler/Dodge issue. Its a uconnect issue. Look at their site, https://rsur.extra.chrysler.com/rsur/Uconnect.do
. Once you enter your VIN #, it will take you to uconnects info, and show you that this update Disc costs $150 through their site. When I called them and explained I just bought my truck, and I wanted the update for free (before I knew they were sending them out) The lady informed me that They were just the company who produces the upgrades. They they sell the upgrades to Uconnect, and Uconnect sells the finished product radio to Chryser, and they install it.
This update also changes some minor graphics on the GPS Nav system, improves route times, and gives you faster and more accurate turn by turn directions. I do enjoy the quicker re-routes, and calculations it performs..but I wish I could have at least started out with that black screen.
