Please open a ticket (as for the moment) at


and submit the code changes as well. i am also getting a 12SP+ and 7905
besides my current phones (7920/7960) so that we can include all the
missing button templates.

no, AFAIK they use a different format but i can request the dumps from a
friend of mine who owns some of the 12+ / 30VIP phones.

the main basic for was done from theo, i am also contributing whatever i
can do for the chan_sccp project and probably the "lambda-solutions"
code is a bit more beta than theos, but we regularly syncup/backport
this to theo's CVS (thanks to siggi at that point). 

just to point this out : the stable/original WILL always be theo's. 
My CVS will be more experimental and (likely) some more buggy, but will
in the forehand support more devices, but as the support will be stable
for a Skinny phone, we'll backport it to theo's CVS. 

my code is not a spinoff, just to make this clear.
