I have search the CCO for hours and asked local TAC for document on how to recovery my 2948G-l3 swtich from a corrupted IOS image, not found. How can I find it?

Here is the instructions

you need to have ROM monitor with either Cisco IOS Release 12.0(7)W5(15a) or later.

Thank you!

The URL you provided can not be opened just now, I'll try later. I wonder if something is wrong, because I can open other document pages correctly.

How can make sure the ROM version met the needs? What if I have an older version?

I can send you a PDF version if you provide the email address. You should be able to open it

Please make sure you copy the whole URL as some of them may be wrapped around.

If you have a older rom version, I believe you may not have xmodem option. You have to replace the switch. It is most likely that you have a newer rom version as all switches recently shipped have new rom version.
