You'll still need to run update-grub (or is it update-grub2 now?) after editing the file.
I would keep the line in blacklist.conf, it won't hurt anything.
OK, I did the changes and placed the blacklist.conf line back.
# nano /etc/default/grub
# nano /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist.conf
Generating grub.cfg ...

I hope I used the right grub command!
# ls -all /usr/sbin/update-grub*
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 60 Dec 14 03:50 /usr/sbin/update-grub
-rwxr-xr-x 1 root root 35 Dec 14 03:50 /usr/sbin/update-grub2
# cat /usr/sbin/update-grub*
exec grub-mkconfig -o /boot/grub/grub.cfg "$@"
exec update-grub "$@"
Since I am at work right now, I will reboot later since I want to see the screen for Grub2, text console (hope it is back to VGA again), and compile (don't think compiling's display works via SSH2; I could try if you think it will work).
I will post my results later tonight. Thanks again!
