error changing phone background Image using <setBackground>

ahlam ali

Hi there,

I'm trying to change the background image using post method to this url  http://myPhoneIP/CGI/Execute

with XML: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?><setBackground><background><image>http://myimage.png</image><icon>http://myicon.png</icon></background></setBackground>

content-type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded, along with basic authorization header 

both of my images are accessible and I have enabled phone personalization setting

but I'm getting this response:

Unsupported Operation Device doesn't support this operation

I checked my phone's console log and found these messages

IIRC this tells the phone to look at an item on the TFTP server, not an external URL.

I don't think this was officially documented or supported, this and the setRingtone were part of the IP Phone personalization product.

it was accepting both external URL and path on TFTP server as I found on other posts

if it's not supported now, is there any solution to change the background image without changing it manually or using Key press scenario? 


thanks in advance
