Root [Virgin Mobile] Android 4.2 and API 17

There have been no official 4.2 announcments. Vm is not known for being very giving with the updates so I wouldn't hold your breath for them.

The only other hope to get 4.2 is waiting for someone to port it to the Victory or if you know how port it yourself.
What does "porting" mean? That sounds ominously complex and time consuming.

Yes it is. It's the process of making a rom work on a phone. There's no official 4.2 supports or any custom roms based on 4.2 for the Victory so you'd essentially have to take a rom from another phone (generally one with similar hardware) and make it work on the Victory.

You'd have to get all the hardware, calls, mms, data and everything else working
