Yes, that's the third option above (Superboot).
Some Windows folks might get a little tripped-up if they haven't yet unlocked their bootloaders with fastboot, though (i.e., requiring installing the Samsung USB drivers and getting fastboot installed).
I'm also going to be updating the first (or second) post with how to root by unlocking the bootloader, installing a custom recovery, and flashing an su.zip type file.
