    could install without any problem except that had to change the file name to firmware.nb0
    but having problems now. it has slowed down like hell. the power switch doe not immediately activates it as was the case. response is slow. and eats up much more battery!

    “prepare failed rc = -209, PID doesn’t match”
    In this case u can download the SUT latest
    link-
    http://download1447.mediafire.com/wbmqd1fxh2sg/r6qcgq0nnbuhyiu/SUTL3_v1.7.4.zip
    in SUT connect your phone in download mode-
    (switch off phone,then power on with vol+ and power key)
    Now choose the .nb0 fle & click next……………………………………..Enjoy

    guys,
    im having a serious problem here…..im not able to upgrade with the official 2.3 saying there is some technical errors…..
    i had updated with the unofficial one earlier and now im not able to update to the official one.
    pls help.

  • Innocuous

    2.2.2 was MUCH better in battery use!
    The android system is causing system to stay awake 85% of the uptime.

    Not recommended to upgrade. Plus its bloated with useless apps

  • tj_1770

  • Innocuous

    @mohdafaid I used the link provided by you to download the update. Flashed and its working. Successfully upgraded to 2.3.4.

  • Innocuous

    @mohdafais the rar’d file is firmware.nbo what did you rename it to?

  • Innocuous

    @john actually the phone is pretty good for the price range. Only problem is that being a spice branded phone, its not popular.
    @mohdafais can you upload the file and post link here?
    @android_help hope you manage to unbrick it!

  • http://www.inforall.webs.com mohdafais

    It’s better to update to Andro-ID v3.3-RC2 ROM for Spice MI 410, you can download it at http://www.andro-id.net, We use it in this phone. You also can get help from them to.

  • John

    I was interested in buying this phone, but after going through some of the comments I will have to rethink on my options.

  • http://twitter.com/anirudha0 Android_Help

    @Innocuous : Sure thing, downloaded the whole thing.. Followed step by step.. Anyways no other ROM works on the phone to try.. Let me see I will try it again tonight.. Spice Dealers in B’lore themselves suggest that these phone dont have return value and its difficult to sale these phones…

    Will try again keep you guys posted.

  • Innocuous

    @android_help is it due to this update by spice? Did you download the whole file? What went wrong?

  • http://twitter.com/anirudha0 Android_Help

    I have now bricked my phone..Its a disaster…Spice has always proven to be a non-reliable product.. [ Brick : Due to failed software upgrade attempt , the phone can only be used as a self defence device ]..

  • John

    Download is getting interrupted after 3.5 MB. Please fix this issue.

  • Kedar

    Boken link: out of memory exception

  • Innocuous

    Funny how they cannot even get a simple weblink right!
    Its now giving a .net error!
    I downloaded the 143mb file in the morning but it was blank!

  • http://www.inforall.webs.com mohdafais

    the link is dead. we will have to wait another few more day before we can get it in your device. for those who have installed please let us know…. the result with a video . please.

  • Anand

    Just in case you have problem downloading from the mentioned link, try http://www.spiceglobal.com/download/628d4ad7-4c46-45d7-8eb0-4dde07ad066c.rar

    broken link…

    :(
    Magnum HD update is not official update. and not for mi-410 that update is not good, and mobile will show cherry mobile , this is official update….from Spice Mobile…

  • Alok Yadav

    full update available now on same link….. 143.30mb …… finally they did it …… just click on same page and same link …..

  • Innocuous

    file is corrupt! Where can we find the official working file?

  • SUNNYDUBAI

    The file is broken. Unrar command line output says “You need to start extraction from previous volume.”

  • Alok Yadav

    this is not complete update, as it says start extracting from previous file,
    they might have uploaded the half file as all other gingerbread updates (for Huawei X6 or Magnum HD) are more than 150 mb in size …

  • swapnil

    hey avinash u can install the cherry mobile update for the spice mi410 i,e the 2.3.3 version ; that is available on androidos.in or u can search igyan.in for the update as well !

  • Avinash

    I think the updates is broken. I am not able to extract the .nb0 file from the rar file as it seems to be corrupt.
