Update iOS Within the iDevice?

Is there anyway to update iOS within the iDevice or is is required to use iTunes? I am jailbroken (iOS 4.1) so if there that opens any doors I'd appreciate any feedback. I see that you can download the iOS software online through third party sites but wonder about proper installation. I know it's a long shot but thought I'd ask. Thanks in advance!

Yeah you need iTunes/Computer to install a firmware update.
