There was a minor PalmOS patch for my Visor, but it was just an added 
patch that resided in the user space, not an OS reflash. Flashing the OS 
on Visors wasn't possible - it was strictly ROM. I didn't notice any 
difference resulting from the patch, either, so it couldn't have been 
anything major.
