If you're talking about upgrading the SAN switch:

This is the FabOS Administrator's Guide containing detailed instructions on
firmware installation (see chapter 9):

http://www.brocade.com/downloads/documents/product_manuals/B_SAN/FOS_AdminGd_v701.pdf

If you're planning to upgrade your storage server instead:

The firmware on a DS8K should be upgraded by IBM personnel, else you will break your support contract.

This link contains the complete code bundle information from IBM:

http://www-01.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=ssg1S1002949

but don't expect a download link.

Here is the DS8000 Architecture and Implementation Guide:

http://www.redbooks.ibm.com/redbooks/pdfs/sg248886.pdf

See chapter 15.6 where it unmistakeably says:

15.6  Loading the code bundle
The DS8000 code bundle installation is performed by the IBM Service Representative.
Contact your IBM Service Representative to discuss and arrange the required services.
