I try to root with the method to root the lg g2 and took me to recovery to update from adb but since the the dev doesn't support this device it couldn't push the superuser file to system. I wonder what we need? Like what type of files!?

you should be able to push superuser to there even if its not rooted. did you enable USB debugging?

Whelp, this phone had a short life in my inventory. I decided to buy the Moto G LTE, and will be returning the LG Volt when the Moto G arrives and going from Virgin Mobile to T-Mobile. The Volt has NFC, an IR port, a larger screen (albeit, a lower resolution one), a nicer camera, and muuuuuch better battery. While the lower resolution of the Volt doesn't bother me - the screen has very poor color accuracy compared to the G (I compared it to one in person). Also, seeing how fast Motorola churned out 4.4.3 after its release; along with their commitment to future software updates for their handsets - that alone is worth the $70 price difference to me. Even when they don't provide updates anymore, the G has a very, very, very, active ROM community. I realized I would be surprised if the Volt even receives one insignificant OS update, let alone a major one - so i jumped ship.

Best of luck everyone here with their Volts; these phones are really great for the price. I just decided all the pros didn't outweigh the con of official software updates/community support for me alone. Enjoy

Yeah, I'm going with the $30 prepaid plan, which gives me 100 talk minutes, unlimited text, unlimited data (first 5GB @ 4G speeds).

You can see the plans here: http://prepaid-phones.t-mobile.com/prepaid-plans
