I am happy to present to you the guide to root your VirginMobile One V.


REQUIREMENTS
  • VM One V
  • Bootloader Unlocked (guide here)
  • Basic knowledge and good reading skills

So 2 VM One V users had problems rooting their phones and then it was proved that their software was different. So, I modified the kernel ramdisk to include the SuperSU files and other files to help root VM One V

I had to just add few lines of code and transfer a few file here and there.

INSTRUCTIONS:
  • UNLOCK YOUR BOOTLOADER
  • Download the zip file and extract it to your Desktop or something.
  • Put your phone into fastboot mode(Vol Down + Power and then with volume buttons scroll to fastboot and press power button)
  • If on Windows open ---windows.bat file
  • If on Mac open ---mac.sh
  • And If on Linux open ---linux.sh
  • Let it do it's thing
  • Scroll down with Volume buttons and Reboot
  • Your phone will now be rooted.
  • If you have problems with WiFi just reboot and it will be fixed

The device is less than a week old on VM. I'm ordering it Friday, so I will test for you. It's just not many people have this phone yet.

Seems to have worked.

I was able to install super user (chainsdd)

I was also able to use root browser to delete some of the stock apps.
