X-E1 firmware update without external card reader ?

Just wondering if this is possible? Of course I dont want to risk bricking it

I found my new X-E1 waiting for me when I got home from work tonight. Wanted to have a play & update firmware, but I see the procedure from Fuji is to write the firmware to the card via an external reader, whereas with every other DSLR I've owned the firmware was able to be written to the card while in the camera.

I managed to find a card reader thats been sitting on a shelf for years, but it appears to be dead. I've always done image transfers from camera to pc via USB, so have never had a need for a card reader

I'll pick up a new reader tomorrow, but in the meantime I'm wondering if writing to the card externally is the only way?

Fujifilm X-E1
