Default RES to RBZ swap done...any updates? And I want the ram logo!

So I bought an RBZ off ebay, got it installed last night and works great. Easy install, and performs better than the RES.

I did a search, but can't find anything on 2 things I need help with. If there is already a thread that answers these, please feel free to point me in the right direction.

1. Is there a software updates for the RBZ? If so, where and how do I install them?

2. Looks like this unit was from a Chrysler. And I would much rather see the ram logo, or even dodge. Only thing I could find was some people said they had the logo change of their own. Mine hasn't changed on its own, any help there?

Thanks guys!

some of the RBZ 430 radios allow you to change the vehicle displayed

Jeep, Ram, Dodge, Chrysler
I believe it is in the MENU
I also believe that you can have a picture of your own choice as the logo

I also think that the RBZ 430 & the REN 430 are the same unit, so I believe the REN software works on the RBZ
double check that before updating

Thanks for the info. Looks like I have to go to the dealer to update it, or is there a way I can do it?

Load the update on a memory stick and the radio will load the update off of it. That's how I did them on my 11. You can also set your logo to a picture of your choosing.

Where did you get the file from? I have been looking all over. I thought it would have at least been on the site that was linked above, but didn't see anything.

Interesting, I have discoonected the battery 2 times, no luck so far.
Do you know the model number of your radio?
Mine is a P0506xxxxxx made in Sep. 2009 - so it's a little old.

I went by a dealer today and to the the backup camera code XAC flashed, also had them flash the RBZ code for the radio, but still only get the Chrysler logo splashscreen.

I know I can add any wallpaper photo, but I would like to have the RAM splashscreen.

Did you ever get the splashscreen to change?
What software is on the radio and did you upgrade it?
The available software upgrades depend on your unit (as I have found out)

Mine came with ver. 06.06.01 and I upgraded it to 08.05.01.

There is another update to 10.00.01, however the only ISO I have been able to find is bad, I cannot get it to successfully burn to a CD.

That is as far as I can upgrade the RBZ I have.
Radio works fine, all functions are 100%.
and at least the lights behind the buttons are green and match the rest of my dashboard.

you said that the RBZ 430 High Speed Radio works in your vehicle

that radio when it comes in some Jeeps, has these MODEL numbers, it is not a serial number, so it is not a sensitive number, as you can see, only the last letter is different
5064678AD ... stock in the Minivans (AD)
5064678AE ... stock in the Journey (AE)
5064678AF ... stock in the Minivans (AF after 10/19/09)
5064678AG
5064678AH
Jeep & Ram MAY have a different model number ending

VEHICLE COMPATIBILITY

2010-2013 Chrysler Town & Country
2010-2013 Dodge Grand Caravan
2010 Dodge Journey
2010-2011 Dodge Nitro
2010-2012 Dodge Ram 1500 .... it should read 2009 - 2012 Ram 1500, that is when they changed to the High Speed Can Bus
2010-2012 Dodge Ram 2500
2010-2012 Dodge Ram 3500
2012-2013 Ram C/V
2010-2012 Jeep Liberty
2010-2013 Jeep Wrangler

another site to view for the RBZ/RHB radio owners manual is

it comes in a PDF file
