Cisco 2621xm Bootstrap Upgrade


Can we upgrade the bootstrap of our 2621xm so that we can upgrade it to latest IOS and for the 256mb ram to be used instead of 128mb?

ROM: System Bootstrap, Version 12.2(7r) [cmong 7r], RELEASE SOFTWARE (fc1)

The system bootstrap (rommon) resides in boot ROM, ie. it cannot be erased or re-programmed but it should be replaced instead (it is socketed). For the 256MB RAM you need 12.2(8r) version (you currently have 12.2(7r) version). The rommon could be ordered from Cisco (either separately or with the RAM upgrade). But as these devices reached EOL & EOS stage, I really doubt this would be an option now.
