An updated Y2010 Lending Card and Readme are now available. This  
updated lending card adds Apple's latest ROM patches for all German  
MessagePads (MP120 v2.0, MP130, MP2x00 and eMate 300). Also added in  
this update is Avi Drissman's Fix2010.pkg for helping the MP120 v2.0  
and MP130 to cope with dates beyond 2010.

The Y2010 Lending Card Readme eBook. This NewtonPress e-book is  
available for direct download (to your Newton) in Classic Newton  
format here:


The Y2010 Fix Lending Card backup file. This backup file was created  
with Newton Connection Utilities (NCU) running under Mac OS Classic  
and compressed (.sit) with Stuffit.

(File Size: 1,075K)

This backup file is designed to be restored to a Linear Flash card of  
2MB minimum in size. Restoring the data from this backup will replace  
everything in the InOut Box's storage on this card. So, be aware of  
what this means before restoring this backup. To create a Lending Card  
for sending to someone else, erase the card first and then restore the  
backup. Once restored, write-protect the card prior to lending it out.

The files in this backup will update any NOS v2 Newton to the most  
current version ROM, as well as restore NIE, Ethernet and WiFi  
functionality to a bootstrapped Newton. Supported Newtons include the  
U.S. and German MP120 v2.0, MP130, MP2x00 and the eMate.

Additional utilities have also been included to assist with Date and  
Time setting anomalies.

Retrieving the Packages

Patches and Packages are located (and retrieved) by accessing the InBox (InOut Box) app found in the Extras drawer of your Newton. They have been grouped by Date, and the Info Slips have been named, to help easily identify them. The Lending Card should arrive locked (or Write Protected) and should not allow one to delete any of the data within the InBox.


After inserting the Lending Card, double-check where your "Default Store" is pointing to. You will want to be sure that your Internal Store is chosen when doing any ROM Patches. Whether the Lending Card is Write Protected or not, when you attempt to "Put Away" a package, you will be asked to "Delete from Inbox?" You should make sure that you un-check this option. Packages have been grouped by Date and, in doing so, they are grouped in the proper order that they should be installed. Find the package you need, tap the item to get more info about it. Tap the routing menu to "Put Away" the .pkg file. Don't forget to uncheck the "Delete from Inbox" option here. Once a ROM Patch.pkg is saved to your Internal Store, it will automatically run and install the Patch. Upon success, the patch will require you to restart your Newton, to complete the update.
