    This SHOULD have less bugs and all features working properly. We want it to make those ports even better.

    Hmmmm, very interesting... Wonder how it will hold compared to the CM7 ports... Plus isn't a pure gingerbread port coming out soon?
    I don't know if it's coming out soon, lol. But it is being worked on.

    She was also told that optimus s owners may take their device into a sprint corporate store and have their phone manually updated to 2.3.
    Hmmm, my wife's Optimus S is still stock...maybe I'll take her phone in if this is true. It looks like my local store opens at 10 EST. I'll try calling then.

    Exactly. This is why we should all want an official GB build. Even if you think the CM7 ports are sweet, and don't really have an issue with them, working off a GB build, for our phones, from Sprint and LG, can only stabilize things.

    FWIW, My local corporate store told me that they are not able to do this.

    Thanks for checking. It'll be interesting to see if those who try going into their local Sprint stores find any floor models running GB.

    Since we can't find the build on the LG Update Tool, I would guess the update hasn't trickled down to stores yet.

    if they could do upgrades at Sprint stores that would be awesome, but to be honest, i'm completely fine and kinda prefer the CM7 ports like ath3nos' rom.

    I'll wait for a Rootable version of LG/Sprint GB and for Nick & crew to make a sweet ROM out of it.

    Yeah I'd like to have a GB based ROM that's fully functional and then we can start adding our own stuff to our *stock* GB. That'd be awesome!

    So who went and got that Gingerbread update today? I tried, that was a no go at my Sprint store. They said that they do not have it to update. No more info. Now I am calling Sprint tech support now to see what they say.

    This is good news, but I think I'm going to have to get rid of this phone soon. Sprint's service is killing me lately. It seems like I'm roaming all the time and have a hard time getting data. My phone is usable in my home and hit and miss everywhere else. I called customer service about it and they give me the same old crap like it's just me when my wife and neighbors have the same freaking problem. Sprint's plans and phones are good but I need a reliable service and Sprint just isn't anymore.

    Yeah I just got the same result. Don't call Sprint Customer Care, they don't know their head from their derrière. That's what the Sprint store rep said anyway LMFAO.

    I think the 2.3 update IS coming, but I have no idea when.

    Disappointing to say the least. I thought it may be an exciting day for us Opti S users. Definitely follow up with what tech support has to say.

    Lol. I keep checking LG Open Source Code Distribution site for it to drop. I feel like a kid at Christmas time wondering if I'll get that shiny new bike I saw at Walmart.

    So, this post peaked my interest and since Sprint has a lot of conflicting information from 'it was a typo' to 'yes they are shipping with 2.3' to 'no you can't update', I decided to go to the source, LG. I sent LG a note from the Open Source Code Distribution site concerning the information that the new Optimus S' are shipping with 2.3 and wondering when the source will be released and here is the response I received:

    Thank you for your interest about our mobile phone, LS670.

    "We recieved your request on LG Open Source Code Distribution site.

    This site is just for providing source codes of FOSS(Free and Open Source Software) we have used in our products."

    We are planning to release the source that you requested soon.

    Please wait for a few more days.

    We hope this information will help you.

    Thank you.

    Sincerely yours,

    LGE MC Company Open Source Code Distribution Center

    Maybe this will actually happen soon???

    Brilliant move to contact LG about the source. I never would've thought of that. That reply from them is great news too.

    The information coming from Sprint/LG may sound conflicting, but it actually may not be. Nobody's said Sprint isn't shipping new Opti S's with GB, and the confusion at the stores over the update is probably because they haven't pushed it for current phones yet. LG's source code release would probably be after Sprint notified everyone of an OTA update date.

    I may be wrong on this, but wasn't it over the Samsung Epic that Sprint retracted their 2.3 web posting, and not the Optimus S?

    I do believe you are correct about the epic.

    Yep, you're right. Well, I guess that's a bit of a bump in the road, and my last post is pretty moot
