How to : Upgrade the Spice Mi 410 to 2.3.4 Gingerbread Step by Step

The Spice Mi 410 was launched some time back, we also got an unboxing video for you guys. Now thanks to several readers of iGyaan, we found a way to update the Mi-410 to the latest Software Update Android 2.3.4 aka Gingerbread, and we tell you how!

 

Note : Please take a backup of your device, contacts/ pictures / files, anything thats important.

Also Note : This might void your warranty or damage your device and you do this at your own risk

 

What you Need!

  1. Spice Mi 410 (Duh!)
  2. A Windows / Mac
  3. Data cable (USB-microUSB) / Memory Card reader
  4. Patience
  5. Combo Update DOWNLOAD

Step 1

Download the above mentioned file, its an update for Cherry Mobile Magnum, which is actually the same handset, branded under the cherry mobile name.

 

Step 2

Extract the ZIP file. downloaded above and copy the extracted FB0-318B-0-5019-A01.nb0 to your SD card. Make sure it is placed in the Root Folder and not in the Downloads folder.

Also rename the file FB0-318B-0-5019-A01.nb0 to firmware.nb0 you can do this before or after copying the file, it does not matter.

 

Step 3

Enter bootloader mode :

  • To do this first power off your device.
  • Once off, Hold – Vol Up + Vol Down + Power Button and you will see the Android Image as below

  • Next Hold down on the home button and you should be in the bootloader mode see below

 

Step 4

Hi.. Can you please provide simple step by step guide to upgrade the motorola defy to Gingerbread. Either 2.3.4 or 2.3.5?.. The steps on XDA are kindof scattered & looks complicated.. Thanks in advance.

I also faced this issue after upgrading to the Cherry mobile update given here. Had tried everything from reinstalling to factory reboot, to trying to uninstall. Nothing worked. 2-3 weeks back Cherry mobile had another update which resolved all my issues. Currently all of these issues are gone for good after that update. Somehow the Cherry mobile website has changed and I am not able to find their software download section. Seems they are updating the site. This new update should be available sometime when they get their new site in order.

My Phone, Mi 410 has become too slow after 2.3 update. Power button response is too slow - the screen takes its own sweet time to show up, and then all screen button responses have gone slow. Can anyone let me know if this is a known issue and if there is a solution to it? Would reinstalling 2.3 using nb0 file help?

Update for Spice mi 410 is there in the  spice own site, and it is not for cherry update, it will not void your warranty

Hi,    I got my Mi-410 yesterday and I upgraded it to 2.3 (Gingerbread) the same very day. However, I have noticed the Phone go soooooooooo slow after this, planning to relaod the old OS, but just can't find the stock old ROM. My suggestion, keep away from this update. P.S. The Update was actually for the MAGNUM (Cherry Mobile) which is the same phone with another brand name. Adam

Is there an official response to this? Spice should come back and tell us what to do...we cannot just keep saying our phone is becoming slow and dont know what to do next.

Facing the same issue as you are. After a reboot, the response time is better but in few minutes, the problem appears again. Disabling WIFI improves the performance slightly.

yes battery backup is very below stranded and when you update it to 2.3 it start consuming more battery ..it cant last long more then 5 hours 

Shravan

Battery performance is okayish. I was able to get 8 hrs with frequent use of gtalk/gmail/fb/yahoo using GPRS. Without using anything it seems stand by for 6 hrs reduces around 15% of battery. Yet to see impact after upgrade (I don't think something will change).

Any android phone is not giving good battery backup so how can you expect from this which is cheapest phone with all these features.
