Looks like this update breaks any connectivity to the uconnect store and/or apps.

Uconnect is telling me that I have I take it to the dealer so they can "finish" the update since the one we're doing doesn't update a certain piece.

There is an update to the ECM. Mine was just done at the dealership. They're required to update any vehicle that comes in for service. They also did my wife's new grand Cherokee last Friday during an oil change.

I just picked up my 2013 from the service dept today so I can't confirm any fuel mpg improvements yet. I will find out more next week as I am headed to baudette, mn for a fishing trip so we will see how the mpg are then.

There is supposedly a uconnect update as well. They said they did it but its still at a 2.xxxxx version not the 3. I have already heard horror story's about that update not working and killing batteries so I am fine at the original version for now. The uconnect site says my truck has no updates available yet anyways.

My 2013 was just delivered last week. Do you know when the date was of the update?

I'll be watching this thread. I had my first oil change at the dealer last week and asked about any updates and they said none.

I would recommend that everyone stay away from this update. My truck has been in the shop for 4 days now because of this update causing the battery to discharge. Dealer replaced the alternator (not sure why) but that, of course, didn't solve the problem. I'm waiting to see what the next 'solution' is.

Can you get the RRT or TSB number for this flash? I had my 13 in for service yesterday and the dealer said there are no bulletins, RRT's or TSB's out at this time. I'd like to get the full details on this ECU flash.

I brought in my vehicle for service, got the ECU updated, not much info on what it does... I inquired about an update for the 8.4AN, was told none available at this time but working on it. Makes me wonder why uconnect posted an update for the nav unit..
