There is a GPL's linux software HERMflasher for flashing hermes/trinity (working), and similar code for magician (untested).
I guess that the hermes code may be adapted for the universal with some
minor effort.

If the uni is not locked. Otherwise it may be easier to flash from the SD.

Sorry, the current htc-tools version is magician-specific.
But we are working on flashing the linux ROM, so it'll work eventually
