Uh, if you "just got it" then it already has firmware 0002 installed. And many programs can see the firmware version, like SSDLife and HDD Tune.

Crucial has been putting 0002 on their M4s for 2 months now. Unless OP bought it second-hand or something he's probably running 0002 already .

You've pretty much got it figured out;
1) Install Windows on SSD
2) Transfer files to SSD
3) Format HDD
4) Transfer files back to HDD

You don't need to do any defragmenting. As for wiping the HDD, any program will do but Window's built-in Partition Manager works fine.
