Default changing the background picture on 8.4in radio?

Hey, I've been trying to figure out if/how to change the background picture on my truck. Don't get me wrong, i like the ram emblem, but it'd be cool to change it every once in a while. On my dads 09 he has the feature where he can change the background picture. My radio is the 8.4 without nav... thanks all!

The only way of doing it afiak, is to extract one of the uconnect update images and change it that way. You can also change the icons to the ones you see on other vehicles like a Dodge Viper etc.. All of the 8.4 uconnect use the same images, but contain different directories depending on vehicle type.

This probably wont help you much, but you asked if it was possible. Yes its possible but not ideal.

The '09 - '12 Rams had user friendly Hard Drives, you could even put a image of your dog as a back ground pix & you could watch movies from a CD if you so chose

In 2013 they changed to a whole different type of radio & they are not so much user friendly

I'd like to be able to change backgrounds as well but really, it's not an issue. The factory BG is pretty decent. I just like to have full control, LOL!

I recently bought an 8.4AN off of EBAY the only problem is the vin I got with it shows it came from a 2014 jeep grand Cherokee. If I install it I in my 2014 ram will it display the Jeep logo? Is it possible to change this if not Its going back. FYI it came with a ram bezel and was listed for a 2014 Ram. From all the pics on the net I found the Jeep bezel is different? I have not plugged it in yet, I have the unlock code. But the Jeep logo vrs Ram logo is a show stopper for me.

Go for it. It will automatically switch to the RAM logo when it sees the new VIN number. The logo's for Abarth, AlfaRomeo, Chrysler, Dodge, Ferrari, Fiat, Jeep, Lancia, Maserati, Ram, SRT and Viper are pre installed on the 8.4AN unit.

Not going to risk it, I am not installing a jeep part in my Ram, connectors appear to be the same but radio part comes up on google as Jeep part. I will try to get a refund on this, I should be able to since it was falsely advertised. But thanks anyway

So how can I get the SRT logo again without having the vin?
