    can you please list the steps to take to stop your phone from receiving the OTA updates?

    My question also, I am running stock, but want to keep the "root" option available for future considerations. When OTA updates come, do we have a choice on the phone, to accept them, or not? Or is it automatic?
    thanks,
    Jim

    You should have the option to accept or not, just as you did the v9 upgrade that came out. Remember?

    The automatic updates don't automatically install. They download to your cache partition and prompt you to install when complete. You can say "no."

    Its early feb I want my gingerbread
    I popped into my local Sprint store on Monday and asked about Gingerbread update for the Optimus S, and she gave me a deer in the headlights look. She looked in the playbook that they use for supposedly insider information not released to the public, and said that there wasn't anything in the works. Then she said that she doubted a "low end" phone like the optimus would get Gingerbread before the "high end flagship phones" like the EVO.

    So then I asked about the fact that LG supposedly wants to stay ahead of the game to remain an up-and-coming player in the android market so their goal was to provide better support, and she blows me off like that's a novel idea that will never see the real world.

    I think she just didn't like not know all of the answers. She didn't even mention the update their pushing now, so I doubt her playbook is useful at all.

    Since when are sales persons ever helpful with high level technical questions. That goes for any store on just about any product. Thats why forums exist.

    High end flagship phones? They haven't even got 2.2 yet!!! Someone dropped the ball big time by not giving those phones an update to 2.2 asap. I strongly believe we will get 2.3 on the Optimus S soon enough. It is such a popular phone that we will at least get a couple or a few more android and firmware updates before the Optimus S gets "old" in terms of cell phones and they simply stop updating their "older model" phones. They can't update them for ever, but we will get taken care of for a little while longer.

    The EVO is selling with 2.2 now.

    No one that mattered actually said early February. A magazine posted part of a conversation with a support rep who just made that up. Anytime you see information and it involves "A support rep said..." or "The salesperson in the store told me..." you can safely assume all of that information is 100% BS. Once somewhat solid information becomes available, you will see it spammed all over this forum and various websites.

    She said high end phones. lol

    People, that want Gingerbread, just root your phone and go get it. I rooted my wife's phone in about 15 minutes last night and then loaded up Gingerbread. Seems to be running great.

    I already have experience in rooting phones as I also own an EVO, but for those that do not, all I can say is do not be intimidated by it. As long as you can follow directions, it is quit simple.

    I think a lot of people are afraid of the term root and think it is some crazy wacked out thing. The rooting part is simple and then once you flash a Rom through recovery 1x you will be an expert on flashing roms going forward.

    If anyone needs help or has any questions about rooting and the effects, just post away. There are a ton of people willing to help.

    An Androuid device that isn't rooted is like buying a Ferrari that can only go 60mph. You must root to really enjoy Android and your device!

    Since the LG update tool allows maintaining root because it does not touch the recovery partition (thus leaving a custom recovery intact) this may be a diabolical scheme to trick us into something like an OTA update and foil rooting yet again. Do not rush in and apply this if this is indeed what happens. Wait for the cooler and wiser heads that lead this forum to investigate. Remember that Zefie and others are working on CM7 (Gingerbread-based CyanogenMod ROM) even now.

    Yes, that would be the safest use for it plus he could then add Swype.

    I might be an old stick in the mud, but I don't like Swipe. I tried it for about an hour (probably not enough time) and just didn't enjoy it. It seemed like I had to wait a few seconds between each swiped word to be populated, which ultimately didn't seem faster than hunting/pecking for each letter and then selecting the suggested word. Maybe I'm just too fast with regular QWERTY texting to appreciate the difference?

    I dunno, I think I'll wait for infrared pupil-detection or a direct neural interface.

    Aside from that, Gingerbread will be tasty...
