Ok so here it is. I did end up with root- but this did not do it alone or without issue. It flashed, booted fine (yellow triangle of coarse), root in adb awesome, remount read/write. But no wifi, and busybox wouldn't install- no su binary is what I was getting, no root permissions on the phone. After messing with it for awhile I decided because of write capability to try zergrush, and presto I have root (which also wasn't perfect titanium backup had to fix a permission) I am backing it up now, and then will see about fixing wifi.
