Latest code is 08.0.30b. You need to have an active support contract and a MyBrocade account to download it.

I think u will need to check the release notes since your release to the latest. But it's always a good idea to update the firmware as long as there very little network disruption. There are always a few fixes and enhancements available with each new release.

Re: Upgrading Brocade ICX 6430-24

Recommended codepath for the 6430 is 8.0.10h, as per http://www.brocade.com/content/brocade/en/backend-content/pdf-page.html?/content/dam/common/documents/content-types/target-path-selection-guide/brocade-fi-target-path.pdf

I'd recommend not going with the newest code revision, as unfortunately Brocade releases tend to be a bit buggy on new codebranches (though 8.0.10h doesn't seem to be great either, having lots of issues with management IPs dropping packets).
