I want to uninstall this update from my system, (knowing security risk, doesn't care security if hardware doesn't work)


I know that this update was compiled with a unestable and buggy Oracle Java version not RC, was beta and Apple put it like RC.


Please how to uninstall this update?

    Pasting: java -version into Terminal and pressing Enter should reveal this after the update which fixes the bug.
