Do a search on cisco's website for Cisco Phone Designer. I use it on the phones here for background pictures and ringtones. I think it works with 7911's. Pretty slick app.
Phone designer only changes ringtone on 7911
If you search NetPro you'll find the instructions for this, this has been asked PLENTY of times before. PLEASE SEARCH NETPRO FOR ANSWERS

Fairly easy to do.
Thanks for your answer alijames.
In this document says it:
You can obtain a copy of the Ringlist.xml and List.xml files from the system using the following admin
command-line interface (CLI) “file” commands:
• admin:filefile view*
My problem is that I don't know to access list.xml file with this information.
Can anybody help me?.
The TFTP subdirectories for each phone model and List.xml file do not exist by default.
Create a 'List.xml' file as documented in the Admin guide, along with the 2 PNG files to the specification in the Admin guide, making sure the correct case on the filenames is observed.
Browse to your CallManagers that run the TFTP service and do the following:
Now when you try to change the background on the 7911/06 phone, you should get the background you uploaded as an option.
You use exactly the same routine for other models of phone, but the Directory name and PNG sizes change as detailed in the Admin guide for each model.
If you want to check what backgrounds are there, you can SSH into the CallManager and do a file list for the 7911/06 phones with
file list tftp /Desktops/95x34x1
or view your List.xml file with
file view tftp /Desktops/95x34x1/List.xml
Sorry but I have more problems.
I am doing all what you say me and it doesn't work.
I upload the xml and png files to all my tftp servers in /Desktops/95x34x1 directory and after I restart all my TFTP servers in the cluster.
Can you log into your TFTP server(s) via SSH and post the output of the two 'file' commands given in my previous post?
admin:file list tftp /Desktops/95x34x1
dir count = 0, file count = 3
admin:file view tftp /Desktops/95x34x1/List.xml
end of the file reached
There appears to be an invalid character Â, instead of a " after Image=
This may be the cause of the problem.
Yes, it was the problem but now I have another problem with the logo that appear in the screen.
I put images with the size that appear in the document "Customize 7912 phone" but only apeear three lines
You dont have any sample file in the callmanager
you have to create the file just copy the List.xml example
TFTP:Desktops/95x34x1/TN-yourlogo.png" URL="TFTP:Desktops/95x34x1/yourlogo.png" />
copy this to a note pad and save it as List.xml if you need to edit this open it with notepad again.
replace the image file names in the file you should have 2 Images of the dimentions as mentioned below
•Full size image—95 pixels (width) X 34 pixels (height).
•Thumbnail image—23 pixels (width) X 8 pixels (height).
one for Thumbnail and the other is ht logo you can convert a bmp to png via web or freeware softwares.
Note:the image file name is case sensitive and also the List.xml "L" should be capital, the
TN should remain for the thumb image and it is case sensitive.
login to the callmanager OS administration/ software upgrades/TFTP file management
click on the upload icon then attach the file
in the directory add this /Desktops/95x34x1
upload the files "List.xml, yourlogo.png, TN-yourlogo.png" to the same directory.
now reset the TFTP service from the servicability and you should be seeing the logo on the
phone within minutes depending upon the load of the server..
for ring.xml also you have to create the file and upload there is no file readily available.
Here at my company we have 7911 and 7942, we've already put the images on TFTP serve and it's working fine.
But I would like to know how can I make these images be default in all phones, I mean without need to set it up in all of them.
