    You altboot with a usb using the freely available firmware on xerox.com

    Details on USB file/folder structure are on your service manual under general procedures.

    Some do, but not this one. The USB cable method tends to be on their production kit and not the office Workcentre/AltaLink/VersaLinm range

    Older machines and production, yes. And, there's the PuTTY tool, as well, but that's a different story. But, on this one a simple altboot directory on a USB that contains the .dlm and an empty text file (with no extension) named FORCED_UPGRADE will do the trick. If you want to wipe it out during the alboot, also include a similar file named DISABLE_DATA_BACKUP in the altboot directory as well. Depending on how far up the FW ladder you are going, it might just wipe it anyway. Be aware, an altboot takes a while.
