When Sprint originally pushed Gingerbread to their army of LG Optimus S users, the update broke a lot more than it fixed or improved. All sorts of issues plagued users, including one where the phone would refuse to charge.

That’s a pretty grave bug and Sprint was forced to pull the update and fix it. It appears that they’ve ironed all of those issues out, though, as they’ll soon be resuming updates via a staggered over-the-air process. Here’s a long list of the changes you will find:

LG Optimus S Software Update – Android 2.3 (LS670ZVJ)


– Device not charging

– SD card un-mounting error

– Device not recognized by Windows SP, Vista, or 7 operating systems

– Predictive Text with Android Keyboard issue

– Voice call volume issue

– Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)

– Updated color scheme (includesdarker notification bar and black-based menus)

– New on-screen keyboard (supports multi-touch input and a smart auto-correction function)

– Improved cut-paste functionality

– New integrated download application for ease in accessing downloaded files

– Updated camera application

– Power management and task killer applications

All of this is coming to users April 4th and will be rolled out in stages. It’ll take up to 21 days to get the update to everyone so don’t panic if it doesn’t show up at 12 AM on the aforementioned date.  [Sprint]
