Brocade 8000 - Upgrade Firmware

Hi all,


So I am trying to upgrade the firmware on my Brocade 8000 switch since it has not been upgraded in a very long time, and I am a little confused on the process.


The firmwareshow command shows me that my FOS version is 6.4.0. Now is it possible to upgrade to the latest firmware version directly, or do I have to upgrade the firmware one version at a time?


Also, where do I find the firmware? I have looked around on the Brocade website and on Google, but i haven't found any actual files to download to use.
