The problem herein lies that you're not going to be able to take firmware from a NEW CS and copy it to an older CS. There's no way for you to interface with the UPS EEPROM like that. The firmware chip that's used in your UPS is not upgradeable by any means, so I guess I'm not really sure how you're planning on accomplishing that feat.

hi,

the firmware on the UPS EEPROM is proprietary APC information and cannot be given out for any purposes.
