Does anyone know if it's possible to root an existing installation without flashing everything? (Similar to how rooting Android phones normally work; though sometimes the initial bootloader unlock wipes the data partition for security reasons)
Yes, if you have a standard Android system, just flash the boot image on it, using flash tool in "download only" mode.
See attached screenshot, firmware is available at

Great, thanks! Going to try this tomorrow (at work with no Windows nor Linux box). Going to try using the Linux flasher tool as well.
