    Did anyone else get the software update pushed out to them on the Optimus S. I was sitting there last night and it pushed Swype as the recomended keyboard and some exchange fixes. I had'nt heard there were any updates coming. Swype works great as usual but I dont use an exchange email service so I don't know how that one worked out.

    Are you sure you're talking about the optimus S or the optimus T? The optimus S doesnt have swype. The Optimus T does. And they both had a bug with exchange

    Just wondering if LS670ZV9 is coming with swype as a new feature.

    EDIT - Can you do me a favor please and verify you have LS670ZV9 by going to Menu > settings > about phone - SW version

    If you have V9 , feel like seeing if it's rootable? please

    I can't get it to give me V09. As for Swype he may be in the official beta like I am. I have Swype on my Optimus S.

    I have the LS670ZV9 as the software version,
    Android version is 2.2.1
    Build number is FRG83
    Baseband LS670MV9_6040
    I should have checked before I did the update but I was half asleep and didn't think about it
    I am on the official Swype Beta also but it didn't look like that mattered with the update and how would LG or Sprint know if I was on the Beta Swype list? Unless they got the list but that doesn't make sense to me.

    So question is, with a rooted optimus s, will we lose root doing the update or even do the update with it rooted?

    @gabbot - yes

    @ anybody on V9 - Somebody with v9 root that sucker. Hell download z4root and and run it (uninstall lookout first if you have it). I just want to know if they did anything to the kernel to block rageagainstthecage.

    I'd help but I keep checking the firmware update and it says no update so I guess I'm not in the OTA pool yet :/

    The OTA came across a few minutes ago on my daughters phone. It will probably be a day or two till can sit down and attempt to root. will let ya know.

    How jealous am I ? My daughter has swipe and I don't on my evo....

    so is it confirmed then that v9 comes with swype now? I have swype on my phone (through legal channels) but I would be curious to know if everyone with an O-S gets it now. Thats would be sweet.

    @ phxdroid
    You could try to root it and find out in less than 2 minutes if you download the app z4root free from the market it also has an "unroot" button so your daughter would be non the wiser what her dear old dad was up to lol!!

    Wait a sec... there is an update for the Sprint Optimus S being pushed out... that includes the Swype keyboard?

    I haven't gotten the update yet. But I am having terrible problems with my SD card unmounting while it is still in there. I have to reboot multiple times a day to get it working. It seems like a software problem. Has anyone with the update had this problem and does the update seem to fix it?

    No problem. I would have tried the manual method (which I used on my sister's Optimus), but I was feeling lazy.

    Has it been confirmed that this OTA update includes Swype?

    My next question... what happens if I already have Swype installed on the Optimus (I'm part of the beta)? Maybe I should uninstall it first?

    Yes, the OTA update includes Swype as well as enhancements to Exchange. I'm not sure whether or not you should uninstall your existing installation. The update may just overwrite it.

    Good deal - any word on what the exchange enhancements are?

    No, I should have had something running to log where the update was coming from before I downloaded it. . I have two more phones that still need the update though.

    reason for this/these updates... (shld of came with these updates bc of the week late launch) lol.

    verizon is releasing their take on the optimus s/t series..with LG Vortex

    which has swype etc.

    however i find the Optimus S a nicer looking phone than the Vortex. very similar, style has skinner and more close together 4 function buttons.

    also my downloads aren't working from the market either, I just tried to download 3 things and its a no go.

    ddark1: The OTA updates are pushed from the carrier (sprint). Your number will come up at some point. It has nothing to do with rooting your phone....EXCEPT after you root, you will want to wait for a "rooted" update from the developer of the method you used.

    I have experienced market "burps" on occasion on my evo and my daughters optimus.
