Signed in (SfB Online)
So yo upgrade i need to login into the phone via the web interface which i have enabled. So lets grab the IP from the phone.
Go to Settings > Status > Network > TCP/IP Parameters
Grab the IP, open browser and enter the IP
default password is 456 but yours could be different
Once logged in go to Utilities > Software upgrade
Here you can see current software version which i have 126.96.36.19926
I next checked for updates via the Polycom hosted server, im not using any custom update servers at home yet.
From the drop list after the update i can see a number of version and i wanted the latest 188.8.131.5225
Software versions on the server you choose display in the Available software versions drop-down list. The currently installed version is shown in blue; older versions are shown in red; newer versions are shown in green.
So i selected the latest version click install
I read all and clicked accept or i may have clicked just accept. lol
And the phone started the upgrade
