Good news this afternoon for owners of Sprint's LG Optimus S, as it looks like a nice re-push of a Gingerbread treat is in your very near future. Sprint has announced on its official community forums that it plans to begin rolling out the LS670ZVJ update to the Optimus S starting on April 4th. The update will bring with it a bump to Android 2.3 Gingerbread as well as a handful of other enhancements, including fixes for an error involving the unmounting of the device's SD card and an issue with the Android keyboard's predictive text. Here's the full changelog for the LS670ZVJ update:
This is actually the second time that Sprint has rolled Android 2.3 out to the Optimus S. The original push began back in September, but Sprint suspended the update after it began causing issues for users. As I mentioned before, the new LS670ZVJ update will be rolling out in stages starting on April 4th, and Sprint expects 100 percent of devices expected to receive it within 21 days. If you'd like to check for the update manually once Wednesday rolls around, you can do so by grabbing your Optimus S and moseying on into Menu > Settings > About Phone > System Updates. How many of you are rocking an LG Optimus S on Sprint?
