Afaik, any working USBTinyISP will program 841 without issue. There was a bug in some recent versions of avrdude that broke USBTinyISP in general (updating ATTinyCore to 1.3.2 via board manager will pull in the fixed version of avrdude)
ATTinyCore for x4/x5/x61/x7/x8/x41/1634/828/x313 megaTinyCore for the megaavr ATtinies - Board Manager:

My advice is "if it ain't broke, don't fix it". Give it a try with the current firmware and if it works then don't waste time on a firmware update.

I've never heard anything about firmware updates being available for the USBtinyISP, though I'll admit it's my least favorite of all my programmers so I may not be so tuned in to the pulse of the USBtinyISP user community.
