Hi Shiv,


Just to add a note to the good help from Liz (+5 points here Liz :)


Under>Device>Phone>Phone Configuration


Firmware Load Information (leave blank to use default)


Phone Load Name


You can specify the firmware file name specifically under one phone and reset the phone so that it will upgrade to the new Firmware.


Hope this helps!

Good morning,


http://download-sj.cisco.com/cisco/voice/ip-7900ser/cmterm-7970_7971-sccp.8-3-4SR1-readme.htm


This link is to the text file relating to the 7970 firmware v 8.1(4)SR1. The installation instructions for 5.0 are listed.


You just need to log in with your CCO credentials and download the text, find the right firmware for your version and model phones and follow the instructions.

Hi Shiv,


Rob so nicely covered your second question.


The reset will take longer than normal, and if you're able to watch, you can see it load the new firmware.
