I'm trying to upgrade the firmware to 1.4.7. But i get an 'illegal software format while trying to upgrade' error. After searching around i find i have to update the bootloader to 22.214.171.124 (the highest in the 1.3 serie). But the download Cisco section doesn't offer that version. (see attach)
the header says there is an 126.96.36.199 version but the actual file you get is 1.3.5.06 !
With this boot file I still get the illegal software error
So how can i get the correct bootloader (188.8.131.52) so i can finally upgrade the firmware to 1.4

The “SW code file is oversized” or “Illegal software format” does not mean that you are using the incorrect file. This message error is displayed when you are attempting to upgrade the device to the latest version from a version prior to 1.3.5.
E.g. If your device is on the version 184.108.40.206, you won't be able to jump to the 1.3.7 version.
So, first install the latest version for the 1.2.x.x
Install the first version available for the 1.3.x.x
Install the latest version available for the 1.3.x.x usually is 220.127.116.11 > * Verify if the boot code file is included.
Now you should be able to install the latest.
In addition, the boot code version 1.3.5.06 is the latest one for the Sx200 series.
