Sprint Resumes Gingerbread Rollout for LG Optimus S April 4th, Bugs Should Be Zapped


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]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. I’m leaving Sprint… They’re a joke.

    1. i want to but i get a %20 discount through my job and dont want capped data the only 2 reasons…i would like to go to the darkside(AT&T) for GSM capabilites but cant seem to justify spending the extra $$

  2. how is it that ics has been out for several months and we are still rolling out updates to gingerbread

  3. I got this phone free before the $10/mo smartphone price increase rolled in across the board.  Outside of app storage being too limited it’s been a good little phone.

    …but I’m ready for Sprint to release their LTE network and their version of the HTC One X.  I’m ready for a bigger screen and faster phone (and network).

    …and I’m going to hold off on this update until I know it’s decent. The last one was a mess.

  5. Sprint rocks. As usual. Providing 110% service.
