firmware is bundled with releases, and when it is, it will be
installed automatically when you install the release.  that's fine for
many, many people.  in this case, it will always upgrade, and never
downgrade.  automatic installation will never take you "backwards".

you can also install firmware manually:  put the .rom file on a
USB stick, and type "flash u:\file.rom" at the 'ok' prompt.  you
might do this to help with testing, or because you know that the
firmware fixes a known problem you're experiencing.  when installing
manually, you can do a downgrade.
