Result it fw_update for PIC 18F2550 which IR Toy uses , updated wiki page about IR Toy firmware update on Linux and comment on bug tracker. Hopefully, this will help someone else instead of learning all this stuff, which was fun in itself :-)

You can get IR Toy v2 for $22.05, including world wide shipping.
