If you own an LG Optimus S, be happy! You’re about to receive a pretty big software update. No, it’s not Ice Cream Sandwich. That one your phone will almost certainly never get (officially, at least). No, this is good old Android Gingerbread we’re talking about.
Sure, it may already be obsolete, but then again the Android 2.2 Froyo that’s currently powering your Optimus S is even more so. Which makes this a welcome update, despite the fact that it should have happened one year ago.
Speaking of that, Sprint actually started rolling this out in September. Yes, September 2011. However, it quickly got pulled because of unspecified issues some people were having with it. Issues which apparently took half a year to fix.
The update will start rolling out on April 4, and within 21 days will have reached all Optimus S devices on Sprint. Aside from bringing you the magic of Gingerbread, the update also fixes a whole bunch of bugs. A list is available here.
For update instructions, Sprint provides a handy guide over here.
