Upgrade P400 controller firmware

We have four BL480C G1 and I just found out that the P400 arrary controller's firmware is really out of date. The firmware is version 4.06. I see that the newest version is 7.08. Can I make the jump to the newest version from the version we currently have or do I need to do it incrementally? If I need to do it incrementally where do I download the older versions?

Beware

FW cd, and blade fw tools, is not always the latest available FW.

It is recommended to check if there's a later version available.

Also read the release notes, to see if you can go direktly.
Simply, in the FW "list" on HP.com. Click on the name/descibtion, and you can get installation instructions, revision history and fixes.
The revision history is also usefull if you need an older FW.
