    Hello all. I am somewhat familiar with rooting and flashing ROMs but my new MetroPCS Galaxy S3 has been more trouble to root than my previous LG Optimus and LG Esteem phones. I have not tried anything involving Odin yet because I've seen there were less complicated routes to take that worked for others but simply aren't working for me. I also hoped that by now there would be a more updated and easier root method - the Sticky hasn't been updated since 2012. My phone updated to Android version 4.3 with baseband T999NUVUBMK7 and I have not seen any rooting methods specifically mentioning this version so I wonder if that is why motochopper won't work when it seems to have worked so well for others. I also tried oneclickroot but wasn't sure if it had worked for SGH-T999N before. I do have drivers and Kies installed; Device Manager shows Samsung ADB Interface.

    Please let me know a way to root my phone in as few steps as possible, or a simple explanation/guide of the Odin method. Maybe it's not as complicated as it looked :p Thanks in advance guys; I know your expertise will help me get this thing rooted finally.
