Default [Help] Rooting Galaxy S3 - Chinese replica - I9300DDKL1

Hello.

I was trying to root this china replicate GS3 by following this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2145631

After completing all the steps - the device is in 'reboot loop', meaning its being restarted every few seconds without actually booting.

I am able to set it into recovery mode and/or fastboot mode - but I'm not sure what my next step should be.
- Able to get MTKdroidTools to identify the device
- Able to get adb shell

I'm just not sure how to continue - would appreciate some assistance.
I've search google and the forum for the below details without any success - maybe I'm searching the wrong keywords - what should I be searching for?

My purpose: rooting in order to install a proper English rom, so that the market is not in chinese.


Thanks in advance!!

Here are the phone details:
GT_I9300
I93000DDKL1
2.6.35.7-I9300XXKL3-CL793489root@DELL136#2
GINGERBREAD.XXKL3

Update #1:

I figured out the phone is a Speadtrum SP6820A, which I read somewhere is aka SC6820.

Found the following resources which I'm currently going over:
