Updating one touch links
If you’ve recently downloaded an i OS IPSW file, you might be curious how to use it to update your i Phone, i Pod touch, or i Pad.
Using IPSW is often considered advanced but it’s actually pretty easy, just follow along with these directions and you’ll be along your way.
Also the firmware was packaged differently in the previous SIP versions as the device firmware was provided as two separate binary files, the bootloader image and the application image.
In the 4.x UCS release these were merged into the same binary file.
The hardware on our sliding doors in the living room looked like this: So as you can probably tell from the photo above (duh) down they came. Some folks weren’t as crusty as others, but they were all well past their prime. The sandpaper left tons of obvious scratches in the gold finish that I knew wouldn’t completely be covered by thin coats of primer and spray paint.
Luckily I realized the knob would be installed with that part underneath, so only Clara-height children may be able to see the slightly roughed up texture on the underside. Update: A few smarter-than-me commenters recommended trying steel wool or super high grit automotive sandpaper to rough up the surface, so I plan to try that next time.
The Polycom SIP phones support a few different methods for software updates, most commonly utilizing a central FTP provisioning server so that all devices will check a single distribution point for configuration changes and new firmware images.
In previous versions (Polycom SIP software 3.x or earlier) this manual process was not available.
D-Link One-Touch works with all D-Link One-Touch enabled devices.

It said “paint & primer in one” right on the label. I will now repeat that thin and even is the key when it comes to spray paint. I decided I didn’t want to muck up the inside of my lock with spray paint, so I used a spare house key to block the spray from getting into the lock (while allowing me to access the rest of the knob).
If you apply thin & even coats they won’t be globby and thick, and they’ll bond/cure very strongly, which will greatly reduce any issues with things flaking, scratching, or peeling down the line. I didn’t push the key all the way in for fear that the top of the key would block some of the outside of the doorknob, so I just stuck it halfway in so it would block the interior part without inhibiting access to the metal facade around it.
