The way i do it is from FreeBSD itself.
I did it on FreeBSD 9.0 and 9.2, never did it on a 9.1 or 10 Current. I 
also never did it on cards other then the 9211-8i LSI cards.
So do not hold me responsible if things go wrong :D
If things go wrong it can damage the card so it has to be put in for RMA
Download the firmware, and the sas2flash file for FreeBSD

Then i do the following

myrootonzfs ~ *# ./sas2flash -listall*

You can create an USB disk also and do it from the DOS prompt.
