    I got this update pushed to my phone today, supposedly it will fix that SD card issue. It came out a couple of days ago. My phone also happened to turn off by itself a few times before, so hopefully it will fix that too!

    Anybody else have the issue with the phone turning itself off (even though it's fully charged)?

    Thanks for posting that link apinkel. Also, beezy at AC posted a flashable zip to get rid of the OTA prompt. I did it this morning and worked like a charm. You will have to reflash any custom buildprops if you had JIT, hardware acceleration, and/or stagefright enabled.

    Here's the link to beezy's post at AC.

    Like SethTP said, DON'T accept this update if you are rooted. You risk unrooting your phone and there's a chance of permabrick if you flash a radio update with a custom recovery.

    CRAP! I clicked Update Now before I came and read here. STUPID! What's the worst that can happen, it will take away my root and I won't be able to get it back after the update? I don't really care. I think I only had a cache cleaner that needed root. As long as my hot spot works.

    Sounds like you didn't have a custom recovery installed. In that case you'll lose root access. If you have a custom recovery it will likely result in a bricked phone.

    Nope just rooted. I do still have the Superuser icon but haven't tried anything yet. I did notice AFTER the update that my SD unmounted and mounted again. Maybe it was part of the update and it won't happen anymore. Also I noticed after the update, just didn't notice til after, that my Home button doesn't work. Could this be software related or hardware. It's obviously less than a year old so would that be covered under warranty or would I have to use insurance?

    Members on sprint forums say that a reboot fixes the home button not working.

    If reboot doesn't work you should still few covered by the mfg warranty.

    I'm glad I found this forum/thread as it explains two questions that I've had with my newish Optimus S. First and foremost, I got the 'bad sd card' message yesterday..i powered down the phone, took it out, put i back in then re-started and it worked fine.

    Now just a minute ago, I got a notification that my phone would be shutting down to complete an update. I'm assuming it is the fix to prevent the sd card issue from reoccuring, android is still the same version as what was originally on here.

    thanks all,

    Reboot fixed the Home button. Thanks again. NOW I'm having a lot of other problems! Phone is very laggy, apps like Handcent are force closing, everything takes more than one swipe or click and the phone is over all really slow! Root is gone and I can't get it back even though the Superuser icon is still there. Wish I never did this update! Anyway to get rid of the update?!

    That's the problem with applying updates. There are temp files and data settings that were created before the update that cause problems after the update has been applied.

    One thing to try is to go into your applications and clear cache (cache is where programs store temp work files). You can either do this for each app by going to settings-->applications-->Manage applications-->(select an app) Clear Cache. It's tedious going thru every app though so I use an app called cache cleaner since it finds all apps that have cache for you, you can then go into just the apps it finds and clear their cache.

    Keep in mind that there's no guarantee that this will clean everything up because some settings are stored in data (along with all your programs and their settings).

    After applying an update the only sure way I know of to get a clean system is back up your data, wipe data and do a hard-reset and redo the setup on the phone. I wish I had more info for you... hopefully someone else can provide more suggestions.

    I'm going to have to do a factory reset before I throw my phone out the window!!! Everything is taking at least 20-30 seconds to open...if it opens at all and doesn't force close! Urggggg!

    I did another battery pull before I did the factory reset and everything seems to be working fine now. :)

    I seen some threads saying that after the update the phone becomes slow, and may need a factory reset to fix it.
    Is this a real issue for most people?
    I'm very happy the way my phone is working so far, and I do not want no hassle, is there a way to stop the messages asking me to install the update?
    Thanks!

    The only way I know of to stop the update message you have to be rooted. I'll post a link in the morning. Well later this morning lol.

    Thanks, I guess I wii have to install the update and see what happens...

    I did a couple battery pulls after the update and it's working fine now. If it acts weird just do a battery pull. I was rooted before and now I'm not.
