As far as I'm aware of its a one step upgrade, so nothing fancy about that.
Get the firmware and unzip
Setup an ftp server with account and and path
Test your ftp server for access to files
Issue firmwaredownload on your switch

When you issue the firmwareDownload command, there is an automatic search for the correct package file type associated with the switch. Specify only the path up to and including the v6.4.0c directory. Alternatively you can specify the directory followed by the file release.plist (ex. /v6.4.0c/release.plist).
Enter the firmwareDownload command and follow the simple steps.
* FTP or SCP transfer
* IP address of ftp server
* The path to the FOS directory
* Username and password for the access on the ftp server
If all the above are correct the brocade will automatically download all necessary files and then reboot.
