I was able to get root.

Standard disclaimer: If bad stuff happens it's your own fault. This worked on my phone.
This is JUST the system partition image with su injected into it and some minor debloating all wrapped up in a tarball. Put this image in the PDA section of Odin, make sure auto reboot is checked, and flash away. It shouldn't mess with bootloaders, wipe your data, or anything else. It will, however, raise your flash counter. After first boot install superSU from chainfire and you'll be rooted and rolling.
I have gotten a report of speed dials dropping to only 9 locations, but from what I understand this is common.
For the record: I'm not a developer. I'm just a guy that tried some **** and it happened to work. I'm learning, but don't expect miracles, this was probably just dumb luck :P I'm thinking that we'll get CWM soon, especially since the Samsung Rugby that just came out is a twin for this device internally. The specs and SoC are exactly the same.
