I am not aware of code sequence steps upgrade for the ASA platform going from 7.x to 8.x.. Going through some docs to verify I did not come accross any warning notes when upgrading from 7.x to 8.x, so you should be able to upgrade both code and asdm to latest versions. if need more assistance let us know.

Go over this release note for version 8.0, again.. I do not see any code upgrade pre-requisites sequence for upgrading asa 7.0 straight to 8.0

Other ASA code releases ,refer to"upgrading to new software" section on each code release link it should tell you about upgrading-downgrading procedures notes only from 7.2 to 8.0 and vice versa, but not mention on 7.0.

May be too late to answer, but if you look at the TAC case # K63074088

Title: How to upgrade the software image on Adaptive Security Appliance 5500 Series to 7.x in a failover pair.
