Spice might have deserted you after the Android 2.1 update last year, but there is still hope for you. Spice Mi 300 is in real a variant of Commtiva Z71 [an OEM device]. The same phone has been released in other markets under different names including in Philippines as Cherry Mobile Nova.
Cherry Mobile recently updated Nova to Android 2.2.1, the same update should very well work on Spice Mi 300, as both are exactly the same devices apart from the outer branding.
