Alarms are a problem on the 49G+/50G due to emulation of the old Saturn processor on the new ARM processor.

Unfortunately, no. The final firmware update was in April 2009 (version 2.15), and at that time the cause of this bug was still unknown. So there is no firware update that fixes the bug. Nor is there a software fix. Sorry.
