Hi thechet69,

Thanks.  The chmod was what I needed.  Can I download a config from a phone using SPC?  I see the --target argument though have been unsuccessful on download the config from a phone using the mac.

Where can I download this utility /- /spa525g-sip-7-2-3-spc-linux-i386.bin

Are there different file for each model? 

Thank you.

Hi Jonathan,

There is a different SPC utility file for each version of firmware and for each of SPA3xx/50x, SPA51x, and SPA525.

SPC are available from.


I suggest you use 7.4.9 instead of the older 7.2.3 firmware that you're looking for.

Check out reference document the locate firmware, SPC, and other phone related application notes.

Great. Thank you.  Is this the tool use to encrypt the config files as well?

Patrick Born Tue, 03/13/2012 - 09:26

Yes, run the command without any options and it will display help.

Read more about the SPC tool in the Provisioning Guide.

Do have instructions for MAC OS X 10.7.5. I know how to do it with windows. Our company went all MAC now so I am on a learning curve. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
