    Optimus S updated to gingerbread.

    The Lg Optimus S has received its official gingerbread update as of today. Maybe that means the C will be updated soon.

    I am not a developer, but I can tell you that it will not work because if the differences in the kernel, but I am sure there are others as well. They are essentially the same phone. Its the software that separates them. Porting a stock ROM seems a little silly to me.

    It's cool. The optimus c should get it's official update soon, it may already be available. You have to use the lg software update tool for the c.

    Just because the Optimus S received an update doesn't mean the Optimus C will..

    The Optimus S was out a lot longer than the Optimus C / Optimus M

    The differences are in the kernel and partition sizes, aka if you flash the OS GB on the OC u will have a brick on your hands

    The Optimus C and M are prepaid too and not one of the big 4. That makes a big difference in what gets updates n what dont. Doesnt mean it wont happen, but less likely.

    Looks like Sprint has since stopped their update due to many problems occurring after the update is applied. Friend of mine at work got the update and is now getting a new phone because his messaging keeps locking up the phone.
