Default 2007 flash update

I just bought a 2007 ram 1500 about 3 months ago (only 15k miles). So I took it in to the dealership for an oil change, they called me and said that there was a flash update for the pcm for a driveability improvement outlined in TSB 18-009009. So I thought that it could only make things better right? On the way back to work I noticed that my transmission jerked between 3rd and 4th I thought nothing of it. It now shifts hard between 3rd and 4th and has lost its get up and go. I took it back and they said that the tech test drove it and that everything seemed to be fine, and to bring it back if it got worse. I dont know what to do cause everything was perfect before the update, now it jerks and this really sucks. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

I am starting to think that the previous owned had a programmer or something on the truck, and when the dealership flashed my pcm that it reset it to stock settings. Does this seem logical.
