Need help flashing Z87 board for Haswell refresh CPUs

Finally decided to move from my Core2Quad system and I've already made a big mistake. I bought an ECS Z87H3-M and a Core i5 4460 off the forum thinking they were both 1150 so it'd be fine but it turns out Z87 boards need a BIOS update to support the Haswell refresh CPUs. That is an update I can't do because I only have the 4460.

Would anyone be so kind as to lend/rent me a 1st gen Haswell processor to do this update with? I will send the CPU right back after I do the update (heat: trowakage, ebay: ryosuke_takahasi)

Thanks so much.

Yeah I'm calling local shops to see if they have a compatible CPU lying around, so far no luck (I'm in the Hamilton, ON area). It's an ECS board, not an Asus that can flash without a CPU.
