Default sprint pushing OTA update today

i guess sprint is pushing an OTA update today...
i dont know if any users have gotten this update and safely installed it...
i also have an optimus s and sprint pushed an update about 2 months ago that unfortunately bricked alot of optimus owners phones ..so sprint stopped the OTA and is supposedly fixing the problems and left alot of people hanging...
just a heads up to all here..

I downloaded it but have no idea what it was for. I've noticed no ill effects from doing it.

I just did a manual scan for updates cuz I have scheduled scan shut off, and my phone says it's up to date, no updates found.
I did however receive an update that was supposedly a software update for twitter a couple days ago. which I thought was wierd because it wasnt finding updates in Market, but it did give the update through HTC Software update. *shrug*

I'll keep checking throughout the day today for the software update and install it and report back what it does

Yup, it was just a " Twitter" update. Nothing's changed. I've never used "Twitter" anyway.

I got all excited thinking you guys were receiving a new update; a new PHONE software update lol.
granted I recently did a factory data reset cuz I was bored and noticed the phone was starting to slow down a little after almost a year, and the phone seems twice as fast now and hasnt seen the loading screen a single time since, but I always like updates just in case they actually do make things better

Just got the push ... and it seems to have uninstalled Launcher pro and reverted back to HTC sense. I figured I would try it for a bit, since the main reason I changed to Launcher Pro was I was tired of Sense crashing and reloading every time I exited an app (e.g. WWF). Have not seen a crash yet (36 hrs), so maybe they fixed it.

Must say, I had sorta gotten used to Launcher Pro ... nice to have multiple icon actions at the bottom of the home screen vs just 3 available. I may switch back anyway.

Mad

And today had my first Sense crash. Guess I will have to download LauncherPro and set it up again since the update conveniently removed the application.
