How do I go about updating my firware when my SSD is the primary boot drive? I don't want to have to wipe the drive.

You can clone your OS to another hard drive, and do it from there, you can use another PC to do it, or there is a bootable Linux program that can be used. Read this thread for instructions. NEW!! - OCZ Bootable Toolbox - PC Edition

Alright, I finally managed to update the firmware on my SSD. It updated from something like 2.06 to 2.25. I finally decided to do it because the BSOD were becoming more frequent, there was at least one every day, sometimes more. I just finished the firmware update and restored the SSD with a system image and it looks like everything went well. I'll be sure to keep you guys informed and hopefully if there are no more BSOD's then I can mark this as solved!
