At the moment, I would recommend using the method supported by the card manufacturer.

Yes it can, but I don't think there is any "supported" method for this. linux-wlan-ng driver has hooks for it, assuming you can fetch prism2dl tool somewhere since it is not included in the new versions.

There is a change of rendering the card in a non-working state by flashing something incorrect.. Fixing this would require somewhat complex method of reinitializing the flash and this might require some hardware modifications with some card models. In other words, it might be bit difficult to find free support for this. I have written some code for flashing with Host AP driver, but I will not be releasing it before I'm pretty sure it is working 100% correctly and tries to avoid any problems..
