Following an uprev operation there will be three new Informational entries in the error log

                                        Software revision change
6661 I 01/01/1989 00:00:00.00  0x00006409 0x09289b00 0x0190da40 0x000025d0 0x00200b3f
                                        Software revision change
6662 I 01/01/1989 00:00:00.00  0x00006409 0x09289b00 0x0190da64 0x000025d0 0x00200b41

The last column in the entries contains the version number information.

The first entry with a value of 0x0000d384 in the example above can be ignored

The second entry specifies the FROM version, in the example above the controller was flashed FROM 2100031 (0x00200b3f)

The third entry specifies the version the controller was flashed TO. in the example above the controller was flashed TO 2100033 (0x00200b41)
