When using samsung and developing i think you'll have to get used to Odin. All uploads to samsung devices that i know of are done through Odin. Especially Kernel and recovery images.
That's why i got away from HTC, they make life so hard for devs and customizers.
I suggest you either release the image file along with installation instructions and a way out just in case something goes wrong, or wait for your device and test it yourself
