I'm in the process of upgrading a pair of EMC Brocade DS-6505B FC switches. Unfortunately, they are running a no longer supported version of firmware, 7.0.2c (yeah, I know). After some searching and reading, these switches are still supported in the latest FOS 8.* release. My plan is to set a target of 7.4.x.
With that being said, is this the correct FOS upgrade path:
7.0.2c(do I need to be on 7.0.2e before going to 7.1.1?) → 7.1.1b/c → 7.2.1g → 7.3.1d → 7.4.2*

No, you don't have to be on v7.0.2e before going to v7.1.1c. I recommend upgrading to the following EMC supported FOS Target Paths v7.0.2c => v7.1.1c => v7.2.1g => v7.3.1e => v7.4.1e.
