But I think it's reasonable to say that the upgrade mode on the samsung devices is analogous to an unlocked bootloader.

Yes please share

As I said over in the root thread, I'm not going to share the actual image as it's probably likely to make your device explode in flames, and it will trigger the Knox flag. But basically I unpacked the stock recovery.img, added the CF Auto Root bits from another Samsung 4.4 device and the same with cache.img, packaged them up and flashed with ODIN. Once I had root, I re-flashed the original recovery and cache.
