Upgrade Paths for SMB appliances

I've been trying to understand the upgrade paths for SMB appliances by studying sk120512 and I was wondering if somebody could confirm the following example of mine:

Let us say that I want to upgrade a 700 appliance from R75.20.65 to R77.20.81. Would I be right to assume that the following process would need to take place:

1) Upgrade to 77.20.11.

2) Then, upgrade from 77.20.11 to 77.20.31.

3) Finally, upgrade from 77.20.31 to 77.20.81.

Thanks in advance.

Using this upgrade procedure, backup firmware will still be version 75.20.65 ! I would rather suggest to use USB reimage sk98549: How to re-image Check Point 600 /700/ 1100 /1400/1200R Appliances version with Disk-On-Key:

- if the defined objects and rules are easily replicable from the default settings, reimage to 77.20.81 and configure manually

- if you have a very complicated setup, do the upgrade steps, export the 77.20.81 configuration backup, reimage to 77.20.81 and restore the backup.

Then, both firmware versions will be 77.20.81...

BTW: I would rather use Build 990172929 for R77.20.87 if this is a 700/900/1400 appliance.
