If the update was truly corrupted then that would mean that there's no data integrity checks during the update process which a pretty damn scary thought.

It's likely that the update it was just improperly packaged. e.g. wrong package applied to the wrong part.

So I guess at this point I'll schedule a service appointment with my dealer to have the oil changed and the CC problem fixed since they're ignoring my emails and SMR won't answer my question.
