Question N70 Firmware upgrade without power plugged in?

Hi all. I have a problem... Now to get to the point I am unable to upgrade the firmware on my N70 because it is required by the nokia firmware update app that my power cable is plugged into the phone.
Problem is that the power plug on my phone doesnt work! (I have to take the battery out and put it in a seperate charger to charge it).

Is there a way to update firmware without needing my power plugged in?? All help is extremely appreciated!

As far as I know, not! Repair the unit first...

You can update the SW without a charger plugged, but ONLY if you're sure that the battery is full and it won't go out of juice during update. If that happens during the update, the phone will die and only a service can repair the phone.
Do you like my signature?

How do you do that? To the extent of my knowledge, it cant be done with the nokia firware update app. Are there any other programs you can use?
