Force WP7 update on a mac

So I read this post  on using Zune to force-update a lumia over on The Nokia Blog, and wondered if I could do the same with my mac. I couldn’t replicate the trick with windows phone connector, but I *could* detect the update was there by using Zune on a Win7 virtual box install. Once it was detected I shut down the VM and fired up WPC again – this then let me install the update. I tried it this way as I didn’t want to risk a FW update from within a VM in case of issues.

Surprising that the “update available” flag seemed to be set on-device, not in the software though.
