I've rooted my Virgin Mobile LGLS740 using towelroot, never had a problem with it since.

It's the LS740ZV4 update that's the problem.

Is there an easier way to root this phone?
The current process of reverting back to rv3 and flashing rv4 has too many steps and seems risky for a novice.

I have a galaxy note2 that also runs on 4.4.2 that was hard to root, but someone has released a variant of the towel root, called ghetto root.
Could someone make use of the same technique to do a easier root for the Volt?

It is possible. A lot of people have been successful. Follow steps carefully. Not difficult at all if you can follow instructions and read this entire thread.. http://androidforums.com/threads/gui...v3-4-5.893332/
