ASA 5520 Software & Firmware Upgrades

Is there a way to update the firmware / microcode on the ASA or SSM? I am planning on upgrading the ASA version from 7.2(2) to 8.0(4) and was wondering how, if at all, the firmware was ever upgraded too. The output from 'sh module' is below.

Re: ASA 5520 Software & Firmware Upgrades

I would not recommend upgrading - search the posts for 8.0(4) - you will find alot of people have had issues.

If there is no specific reason for the upgrade i.e feature enhancments, I suggest you stay on 7.2(2)
