Updating Spark firmware without Windows?

Hi. I no longer have a windows pc and just accidentally updated the ios spark app on my ipad (damn you apple for not allowing per app update settings). Has anyone played around with applying the firmware update using a Linux based system? Perhaps using Wine? I wish the PG software engineers would take the five minutes required to write instructions for Linux, to simply extract the payload from the windows exe and write it to whatever sectors the firmware occupies (when the spark is mounted as an external drive). Just give me the linux dd command please, and I’ll sign a waiver saying I don’t hold PG responsible. :-)
But seriously, dependence on windows to upgrade the spark firmware is not user friendly. PG, please address this. Sure, next weekend I can pack up my spark, drive an hour into town to my mom’s, just to update my amp firmware. I will send you the bill for my gasoline! :-p
