There was a post in another thread about removing the card from the vox, mounting it under linux and copying su but I think most of us would prefer a less invasive method...

     (4) some checks for free space, tmp directory
         (will remove Google Maps if required)[*] Before u begin:
     (1) make sure u have installed files\adb drivers for ur device
     (2) enable "USB DEBUGGING"
           from (Menu\Settings\Applications\Development)
     (3) enable "UNKNOWN SOURCES"
           from (Menu\Settings\Applications)
     (4) [OPTIONAL] increase screen timeout to 10 minutes
     (5) connect USB cable to PHONE and then connect to PC
     (6) skip "PC Companion Software" prompt on device

Read the entire thread. You will see that after the latest update, this method no longer works, and there is no easy method so far discovered to root the Vox. See post #65 in this thread.
