Check if there is a native version of this program for the Mac.  Wine
usually cannot be used for this purpose for two reasons:

1.  Wine runs as a userspace program and does not allow for the
running of special Windows driver software.
2.  These programs usually require direct access to the hardware.  See
#1 above for why this does not work.

If you really need to flash the phone, you will need to use Windows in
some form to do it or a MacOSX native program.
