    For one I am completely lost. Ive tried to go over a lot of threads to no avail so Ill just start from the top.

    Sprint Optimus LG S

    Last night I received a system update so I did it. The update changed the way some of the icons looked and I thought nothing of it. I then received a phone call and was on the phone for a long time until the battery about died. Next, I plugged it in to the charger and after a few hours I noticed it was just locked up on the Android logo. I felt there was no other choice so I did a battery pull. It is still hung on the android logo.

    As mentioned it is Sprint carrier.

    I've only used this phone straight from Sprint the entire time. No hacks or bs done to the phone at all. I've also tried to do the home volume down power off thing and see the recovery menu. No luck running the reboot system now choice. I see the apply sdcard update.zip but have no idea where to download the update.zip file. I did wipe the cache partition and it did work, but did nothing to help the situation

    The only thing i have not done in this menu is run the factory reset option.

    I did take out the sd card and put it in a card reader and back up the contents on to a PC. I am currently looking around the home for the USB cable that came with the phone, knowing I may need it at some point.

    Does anyone have any ideas on what I need to do to get this thing working again?

    My plan was to put the update.zip on the SD card off the PC, put it back in and run it somehow. Dont know where to get the update.zip and where to put it on the SD card either.

    Thanks for your time and any help you may have.

    This was fixed by

    -Pulling the battery, put battery back in

    -Holding down the home, down volume, pressing power button

    -Running the factory reset

    -Re loading all contacts through gmail account (make sure you backup your contacts before hand)

    -Re install any lost apps.

    This phone has serious low onboard memory and SD card is pretty much useless for many apps.

    Thats all I have, hope it helps someone.

    Yeah.. Hey.. I just wanted to let EVERYBODY know that when you do the Optimus S GB Update, and when you boot into recovery and reset it, It brings you back to the ZVD (Froyo; 2.2) OS. I thought this would help, because I in fact, found out the hard way!

    Shouldn't GB Update fix the problem of most of the apps in the market not being able to be stored on the SD Card?

    Factory reset from Recovery does *not* bring you from ZVH/GB to ZVD/Froyo.
