    Ok, as some may or may not know, there are 2 completely diff versions of the One V as of right now. Codenames: PrimoU and PrimoC.

    The phone that cant be bought in the US. The "international" version.

    This is the Virgin Mobile version of the same phone.

    It is very important that you know the diff. Kernels and custom roms won't matter to much as they are easy enough to reflash and recover from. RUU's on the other hand WILL brick your device. Had the same issue with Marvel and MarvelC.

    But you think to yourself, "same device, I can flash an RUU/rom/kernel from the other." Congrats, you have a $200 paper weight.

    Just thought I would put this out there so people can be informed before just going all flash crazy.

    I agree with you whole heartedly. I'll be getting mine on VM in a few weeks. I've been using the Optimus V for the last year and a half. It's been a great phone with some fantastic development, but i think I've pushed this phone as far as it can go. We've seen way too many bricks from people flashing the wrong ROM, incorrect recovery and factory resetting rooted phones. Hopefully you can get this stickied, and stop some of these bricks before they happen.

    Also a Optimus V user and for sure I have seen SO many bricked devices from people trying to root and flash without knowing what they are doing.
