While you can use a third

While you can use a third party tftp server to load the actual files on to the phones, the whole process is more that just uploading firmwares. The IP phone needs to talk to cucm to know that it should upgrade its firmware. All of this process happens at the same time. If you point your ip phone to a 3rd party tftp server, I doubt if it will work. The phone wont be able to download its configuration files, hence wont know if it needs to upgrade its firmware or not..

there is recovery procedure explained...but as I said you can use same procedure just to install newer firmware on IP phone. Just use hard factory reset code and then with tftpd32 provide newer firmware and phone will download it...

I'm pretty sure that it will work...
