How do I know if my switch has route image or switch image

How do I know if my switch has route image or switch image?

Does this R indicates router mode? Is there any way I can know this from show flash itself or some other command which doesn't need booting with image first?

You are correct. FCXS would denote switching image and FCXR would denote routing image. You can check 'show version' to see what is currently running. 'show flash' will give you the contents of both primary and secondary flash.

Thanks for your response, Ben. 

Is there any way I can tell if image in flash is switch or router mode?

SSH@brocade01(config)#sh flash

In your case, FCXS08010g.bin (switching image) is in primary flash and FCXR08010g.bin (routing image) is in secondary flash. 'show flash' will *not* tell you what image your device is running. You need to issue 'show version' to get that information. From your prior post, we can see you are running the router image from secondary:
