VVX 1500: how to upgrade to latest UC software from bootrom 3.0.1

Hi,

 

my phone has bootrom 3.0.1, and the release notes of the lates UC-software say to follow technical bulletin 695 because at least bootblock 3.0.4 is required.  I have set up an FTP server and have been able to use it to update the software on the phone before, so it's working.  However, the phone only displays that all attempts to update the bootblock have failed.

 

I couldn't find bootblock 3.0.4, so I tried bootrom (assuming that's the same as the bootblock) versions 4.1.3 and 4.1.4.  The web interface doesn't list the latest software when trying to update from there.

 

How can I update the phone to the latest software?

 

 

Platform: Model=VVX 1500, Assembly=2345-17960-001 Rev=D Region=0

Hello @hw,

 

welcome to the Polycom Community.

 

The BootBLOCK is different from the BootROM and I am currently chasing this internally. I cannot give you a timeline at present.

Thanks --- the phone is working great so far.  I have a VVX 301, too, and I have to say both of them are wonderful phones with the best voice quality I've ever heared with any phone, which have been quite a few over the years.

 

How can I find out when this problem is resolved?
