Default Bad ECM + Death flash questions

Part number: 56040273AF

I have a bad ECU/ECM/PCM (whatever) now. My concern is that every website I look at for a new one has "Pre-programmed to your VIN# and mileage with the latest Chrysler updates" So this would imply that they're going to update it with the death flash right?

One person I spoke to told me that since I have the AF model they would give me the AG model, but that's one update up so I figure that's got the flash, he said to order the AD but that's a few updates behind what I have and I don't know if that's what I want either.

In a nutshell I need a new ECM but I need to know how to identify if it will have the death flash or not.
