Yes I understand how to update the firmware to the MFC-101; but as you suggested is it also possible to follow this procedure and do the opposite (so from the MFC-101 to my PC)?yes, you can use axe II as midi interface to backup settings and update firmware. im on pc so i used midiox, perhaps something else on MAC
check out "cobblers corner" good thread about updating
Thank you very much for your response. Maybe someone could this copy to the MFC-101 wiki-pages?Yea, with midi cable out from mfc and in to the AXE II and with these steps from another thread

Go into the MFC and get to the dump menu (don't push enter to start the dump yet).
Start MIDI-OX, make sure your Midi device is setup and go to View - Sysex. The Sysex windows pops up and then select Sysex - Configure...the very last option has a checkbox for 'save dump directly to file'. Check that box and hit ok.
Click Sysex - Receive Manual Dump. A dialogue box appears to name and choose the location to save the .syx.
Another dialogue box then appears that says how many bytes have been received.
Go back to the MFC and hit enter.
**If the dialogue box stays at 0 bytes, it is NOT working. I struggled with this for a few minutes until I realized that my MFC was set to Expansion (ethernet). I changed the MFC from Expansion to MIDI and tried and again and it worked flawlessly.**
Hi Minuteman; no this is not the case. I do not have a MIDI-interface and if I understand Mr.Guitarabuse correctly, you are going to use the Axe-Fx2 as a MIDI-interface. See first the how-to on the wiki-page (see: Yeks MFC-101 How-Tos page - Fractal Audio Systems Wiki To upgrade using the Axe-Fx II as a USB-to-MIDI MIDI adapter).So how do you do it? The replies above appear to apply to those who have a seperate MIDI interface and are using a computer.
If I am not mistaken than the following steps can be taken:Thanks guitargeorge. I will attempt.
