Has anyone rooted the virgin mobile (or boost mobile) LG Volt let? If so how? I've tried several ways, Kingo Root, using adb to push the SU binary, ioroot update in recovery, etc.... love the phone just really need to root it.
Edit: VRoot also doesn't work, testing more methods
Thanks in advance

go post in this thread to show that people want the volt rooted so support can be implemented by the author. Use the following commands to post the information for the author of ioroot so that he can possibly add support for the ls740

I need the output from the 4 ADB commands below along with IOroot version and if it was on Windows/Linux/Mac. Any errors you come across would help as well...
adb shell "getprop ro.product.model"
adb shell "getprop ro.build.target_operator"
adb shell "getprop ro.lge.swversion"
adb shell "getprop ro.build.fingerprint"

this is the successor to the lg optimus f3 saferoot and motochopper worked for that phone might be next option not sure
