    Welcome Rjack!
    I am not familiar with that device but I can try to help here.
    When in recovery, is there some kind of option to "flash zip from sd card" or "install zip from sd" or something like that?
    Is your device the Samsung Rugby Smart?:)
    Thanks for joining us today though and I hope you find the answer you are looking for:D

    Edit: forgot to provide a link to your device if it is the Smart:

    Very easy. Download update.zip then boot into recovery mode and select install from SD then select downloads. Update.zip should be visible. Select it then install. You should then reboot and have root.
