Default Downgrading 2010 RBZ 430 Firmware?

My RBZ skips over half the music files I load onto the hard drive. It doesn't matter what bitrate they are, MP3 or M4A, how they are named or how they are tagged. I took my truck to the dealership and they have no idea what I'm talking about and kind of just brushed me off.

So I figured the vehicle is 3 years old, there must be a firmware update. My firmware was 08.05.01 with System 0101. I installed firmware 10.00.11 which did not fix the problem. Now when the radio boots I have a huge JEEP logo with a Chrysler wallpaper.

Is there a way to downgrade to the previous firmware? Are there any official updates to my particular firmware? I can't get the dealership to answer this for me either.

If someone can answer this also, why does the unit play some tracks and skip over others?

Thanks!
Brian

double check on this

your RBZ uses a HIGH SPEED Electrical BUS
not the low speed bus

I believe that the latest update is version 33.01.23
there seems to be a TSB #08-057-12 ( Technical Service Bulletin ) that the dealership can do for you, this May be for the 2012 models only

open this, it explains it
http://www.wk2jeeps.com/tsb/tsb_wk2_0805712.pdf

also look at this site
http://www.chrysler.com/en/owners/quality/rbz/
on the left side of the page, you will see
Media Center 430 (RBZ) Manual, click on it

Your radio will play the following formats:

Thanks. I tried to update to 33.01.23 the same way I updated to 10.0.11 but my radio won't read the disc.
