Looks like someone has. Head over to towelroot.com and download their tr.apk. I can confirm it rooted my Boost LG Volt. Some issues with getting Superuser.apk or SuperSU.apk to work, though.

I too agree tr.apk will allow root. It does not push buysbox so just grab that and you fav su apk and get rid of those damn sd card restrictions in 4.4��

Another thread on the androidforums.com saya installing the SuperSU apk from the xda-developers thread worked fine...not sure if it is the lg f90 or volt it worked on...Another on the same thread said it didn't work for them...They were wondering if it was Virgin Mobile causing the issue...

EDIT:
At this point, the SuperSU in Play Store has been updated (Version >= v2.00) so that it works properly with our devices.
