Boost Mobile G3 root?

    I've done some searching around XDA and I can't seem to find what I'm looking for. I'm thinking about getting a Boost G3, but want to make absolutely sure I can root it before I decide to pull the trigger. That site seems to be even more convoluted and unfriendly than I remember it, so I didn't want to ask over there. At this point, I can't even figure out which variant the Boost G3 (is it the same as the Sprint one?) is, so I'm pretty much lost. Can the Boost model be rooted, and if so, which method will definitely work? The G3 All Things Root Guide here doesn't seem to have any Boost-specific info.

    I have the Boost mobile version, LS990 and I think it's a great phone. I have also searched for a Boost specific forum with directions, and have not found one. It really doesn't bother me too much at the moment, because I am awaiting the release of 6.0
    Once i am updated, I will be looking to root as well. any help or tutorials would be greatly appreciated.

    Do you know for certain that the Boost version will be getting the update? They just stopped carrying the G3 altogether. Makes getting Marshmallow seem unlikely.

    But yeah, I've tried everything I could find and nothing's worked so far. I knew I shouldn't have installed that update. I assumed it was Marshmallow. :/

    I don't know for sure. I assume they will.

    That's a big assumption to make of an MVNO.

  7. certain LG G3 phones are getting the Marshmellow update like the Sprint LG G3 (I have).
    i am NOT getting the 6.0 update because nothing is optimized for ART. I was on MM once hate it so i downgraded from 6.0.1,5.1.1,5.0.1 to kk witch im currently am on. Stock rooted and with a custom kernel.
