Hi SGH-T599 users!
I don't have this device myself, but a S3mini which is pretty much the same device.
Since no official firmwares is to be found yet, and @Unjustified Dev
made CM10.1 and CWM I thought it would be good to make something for odin as an option to get back to stock.
These are reworked images taken from devices with dd-method.
Each tar contains boot.img, cache.img, system.img and recovery.img.
Boot and recovery repacked to be accual size. System and cache totaly repacked to sparse ext4-img files.
I also added supersu, su binary and busybox so these are pre-rooted
If you for some reason want to unroot, go to supersu settings and tick full unroot.

Included is also a zipped "modem.bin" If you messed up your modem you can get it flashed to device with Terminal Emulator.
Put "modem.bin" on your sdcard. In TM, type:
dd if=/sdcard/modem.bin of= dev/block/mmcblk0p16
"one-click-root" (works on s3mini so I think it works here as well)
Enable USB debug. VRoot_188.8.131.5289_english.zip
is known to work.

IF COMING FROM CM10.1, FIRST GO TO RECOVERY AND MAKE A FACTORY RESET
HOW TO FLASH:
Download Odin 3.04 and install samsung drivers.
Unzip downloaded firmware.
Open Odin, put phone in download mode (vol-/home/power).
Connect phone to computer, and place the *tar.md5 in PDA-box.
Make sure F-reset time and auto reboot is ticked. Press START.
Attached to this post you'll find a zipped wipe.tar for odin. Unzip and load as pda.
It's just empty cache and should work to break bootloops if you can't get to recovery.
Thanks to @Unjustified Dev
(sorry if I forgot someone) Just let me know and I'll add it.
