To reset the scanner (wipe ALL programming), press (and hold) SCAN, 2, and 9 and then power the scanner up. You will know it's doing it by the phrase 'Intializing...' being displayed.

To display the firmware version: press (and hold) 2,4, and 9 and then power the scanner up. You will know if it worked by the model, version, and checksums (in hexadecimal) being displayed. Note: the scanner seems to still function while displaying this information, and you have to power cycle to get out of this screen.

To place the scanner is firmware receive mode: With the scanner powered down, press (and hold) the 2 and the 6 and plug in the AC adapter. You will know you are successful by the backlight coming on (similar to other Uniden models) with the phrase 'VERSION UPDATE' being displayed. I have not been able to go beyond this, with the exception of seeing the phrase 'RECEIVING..' flashing on the screen, during one attempt.
