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?:)

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