Installation

First step is to install pmbootstrap. If you already had pmbootstrap installed, make sure that it is updated to the latest version and update your files, to get the newest patches:

$ pmbootstrap pull

Then run the following in a Linux terminal:

$ pmbootstrap init

Choose samsung-kylessopen for this device. For an overview of the graphical interfaces, have a look at the table below.

Install the image:

$ pmbootstrap install

Full disk encryption currently doesn't work on this device, so it should be turned off for now.

Flashing

Ensure that the USB cable is disconnected, then hold down Volume Down + Home for a few seconds as the system boots. This puts the device in flash mode. Once in this mode, enter
$ pmbootstrap flasher flash_rootfs
to install the rootfs. Once this is finished, put yourself back into flash mode and enter
$ pmbootstrap flasher flash_kernel
to flash the kernel.

Bluetooth is likely an external chip: "Bluetooth 4.0 (external WCN2243); 802.11b/g/n (external AR6003/5, WCN1314)" WiFi is likely as well, but camera support is integrated.

According to some websites this device may also have an FM radio, an accelerometer, a proximity sensor and a compass. I haven't found or discovered those peripherals myself but I know the device has a vibrator which most websites fail to mention. It's not on the list because I haven't physically found it yet.
