    Its still possible, but I haven't done it on mine.
    If you downloaded the ZV4 update you cant use Towelroot.

    My girlfriend just got one. I was going to give it a try.
    I'll let you know if it works, if your question hasn't been resolved in a few days.
    I THINK you can root any android phone.
    (Like the comment above, I'd recommend trying Towelroot, it won't hurt the phone if it doesn't work)

    I THINK you can root any android phone.
    You can root anything running Linux (which is the OS in Android) or any *nix variant, even a microwave oven - if you can find an exploit that gives you at least temporary root, since you have to be rooted to root. Towel Root basically crashes Linux in a way that makes it come back rooted, long enough to shove a system file into it - which means that it's rooted. (Don't think that's easy - the reward geohot was due [I don't know if he accepted it] for finding the exploit was huge, but probably amounted to less than minimum wage.) The rest of the stuff, installing busybox as a system file, installing a Superuser app, etc., can all be done once that file is available. (As Linux comes, that file - su - is part of the package. To run as root, you just type su command instead of command ([it'll ask for the root password, one of the things we don't want in a phone we want to give permanent permission to an app to use su, which is where the superuser app, like SuperSU, comes in - we don't want any app to be able to gain root by itself, or every virus would be doing it] and the command runs as root. Which is all you root a phone for - to be able to run apps as root.)

    I've been trying like crazy to root one that i just bought from radio shack today. So far no luck. Has anyone tried framaroot's various exploits?

    Apparently, as of today (Dec 5, 2014), Towelroot and Stumproot do not support Boost Moble LG Volt software version LS740ZV4. Can anyone confirm an alternate method that has worked for this version of software?

    Yes you can you have to down grade to V3 and them towlroot will work and root it. Them SuperSU will work. I never could get it to take the OTA updates though.
