From my web *****hing you need the Canon 20D service utility to read it out of the camera. Of course that service utility is not available to mere mortals.

don't know what a firmware flash would do to it
Unless this info is lock away in a seperate block, a flash is not like a random access memory where one can individually write to a byte or a word. An entire block is usually required to be erased before new data can be written to them...
