A secured MP machine was upgraded from 653 to 656 via olpc-update 656.
The only external application I installed in 653 was Adobe Flash, and it was gone after the update. (Flash player version test shows GSH 8,0,99,0).
Build 653 can be retrieved by holding down the O key while rebooting, and flash payer version test shows LNX 9,0,115,0, which is the Adobe Flash version I installed.
Please also refer to the following user feedback (excerpt from http://rt.laptop.org/Ticket/Display.html?id=5781):
> I just updated to 656, using the internet incremental update. Everything > I installed on 653 is gone -- Java, Flash, XFCE, OpenOffice, a Java > application, preference folders. You get the idea. However, all the > space that they took up still seems used. I'm not back down to anything > resembling a 300mb clean image. > > So where's it hiding? Can it be recovered? If it can't be recovered, how > do I reclaim the space?
