IHave you tried the sprint image? Virgin mobile I believe a cdma carrier,so the gsm images will not likely work. Sorry if the Canada comment above was.confusing(telus is gsm)

A word of warning,some folks(myself included) have had issues flashing superuser from the temporary recovery. The flash appears fine,but upon reboot,no Su in app drawer and root access.

If you have this same issue,don't beat yourself up trying to get it to work,just go ahead and permantly install it. Here's what I did to have a copy of my stock recovery:
-fastboot boot clockwork(not twrp)
-make a backup. your stock recovery will be in the nandroid
-reboot to bootloader
-install recovery of choice permantly
-reboot
-reboot to recovery
-install superuser
-reboot and have root acess

Hope that helps
