What comes to the old Fix2010, you can remove it like this:

1. Install the Y2010 Diagnostic tool:
2. Launch the tool and Tap "Clear Alarms" - note, you will lose all alarms
in Dates and need to set them again!
3. Delete the Fix2010 patch package
4. Reboot the Newton

For the old patch, if you follow the steps above, you don't need a brain

The patch for which I'm now seeking alpha testers is a completely
different beast.
