    Have been reading much on the attempts to get my Sprint Optimus S™ phone "rooted" and get root permissions... did wind up at "oneclickroot" site and chatted with someone there, and if I buy one of their packages ($29.99 / $39.99), they can root my phone, but I INTEND on upgrading my SmartPhone next Month, so I did not see that as a good option at this point ...

    what is confusing is that in the Settings -> About Phone, is the following, where is reads as follows:

    Baseband Version

    Build number:

    Which one do I look to root, "MVJ", or "ZVJ"? Also it seems that many APPs what a utility called "su" (I use Linux for my computers, for over 5 years now, so I understand a lot of the Linux Stuff), but I can't find this "su" utility in Google Play.

    Since this phone is about 4 years old (I bought it as a "refurbished" phone in June of this year, 2014), some of the links to other places outside this web site in one or more or more threads are not outdated.

    You'll want to look at zvj root methods and they'll install the su binary
