More Yealink VP-2009 stuff

I have to admit is a little disappointed with the phone when I got it.  I updated the firmware as far as it would allow me, but the more recent versions of the software would not install :(  After a bit of googling I found that there was supposedly a procedure for updating the old firmware to one of the newer sets, but that it was a secret.  That got me really interested so I dug a little deeper.  I found a PDF that contained a link to a Yealink FTP server which I’m not sure is supposed to be publicly available.  On the FTP server was a set of files that detailed in rather broken English the process.  Basically you put the phone into a special mode that causes it to download a new firmware from a TFTP server running on the same network and off it goes with the new firmware.

My phone now says is has firmware version and it now has all the features I was hoping to get.  From what I can see it now has pretty much the same software as the new VP530.

Happy now :)

I also tested the technique used to get root on the old firmware and it is no longer available, however the technique used for the T38G now works.

    Daniel, can you please share the technique you used to upgrade the firmware of your VP2009. I’m upgrading our phone system where I work and we have a few of these, along with a bunch of T20P’s. The T20P’s are easy because they’re still supported but I was close to scrapping the 2009’s until I found your site. Thanks for any help you can provide.

    Email me directly and I’ll see if I can find the info you need to upgrade the VP2009 phones. From memory it was fairly simple.

    Hi David!

    Does Your Vp-2009 have 128MB or 256MB RAM? (Or better, what is your “Hardware version”?)
