1) After rebooting you can watch your ftp server and see the phone logging in and logging out. Its doing several things (checking the size of the bootrom.ld and sip.ld files and seeing if an update is necessary, etc etc) that I will go over later. It will reboot a couple of times to finish off the update.
2) After the reboots, lets be absolutely sure and lets check the bootrom and SIP versions.
If you did everything right, you should see the latest versions of the bootrom and SIP app that you had placed on your ftp site.
Now check your FTP site. You will notice that there are files being uploaded to your directory with *.log extensions. You guess it, these are just logs that the Phone dumps so you can trouble shoot when need be. If everything was done right, your phone will of seen the new bootrom.ld file and downloaded it, rebooted, and installed it. Next it will download your new sip.ld file and use it.

Ohh this mean, you did not register this extension on your phone system. Create this extension on your phone system. Be sure that password given on Phonesystem is also configured on phone too.

You didn't provide any information about your network which is ALWAYS required to provide any type of help, not to mention a solution.
"Failed to get boot parameters via DHCP, xxx seconds until reboot" simply means that the computer isn't getting an IP address from your router. Setting up your router is another entirely separate topic.
This is pretty simple though, one of three things is happening:
1. Your router is not properly configured to provide DHCP to the phone.
2. Your network cable is bad.
3. Your phone is bad (most likely the RJ45 port since the phone seems to work otherwise).
You can check for bad ports or cables by checking the port status within the router. If the port is lit up, most likely the cable and phone port are fine. This is not 100% though, replacing the cable should always be a consideration even with a lit port.

Testimonial: "thank you"
This in it's most basic description means that the phone is unable to register with the SIP server, most likely for lack of internet connectivity or a firewall blocking the packets.
If you've verified connectivity and opened the proper ports and the phone fails to initialize and still getting “URL Call Disabled” or all of the above parameters are correct, update the firmware for the router. This can usually be done within the router configuration. Then reboot in order, the cable modem or DSL, the router or switch, then the phone. This may solve the problem.
If still having the same issue, confirm in the router configuration for settings such as SIP proxy, gateway, or application layer or any configuration setting for SIP or VOIP. If any of these do exist, make sure they are turned off as these may only confuse or adversely affect many implementations.
