Umm... use the obvious:  just  copy  the  image  to  the  destination
address (i. e. use "cp.b <src> <dest> $(filesize)".

If you read the README, yu will also find out about a  magic  #define
that allows to directly FTP into flash memory [which is usually a bad
idea,  as it is much more reliable to first make sure the download is
successful _before_ you erase the old flash contents  and  re-program
it from the local RAM contents].
