Can't root or install TWRP/CWM

So, I'm trying to root my T-Mobile T999 S3 using this guide:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...ghlight=failed

I'm on the "Flash (install) the Knox Remover zip" in the recovery menu step, and I keep getting the "supersu failed to verify whole-file signature" error. I also get that error when I try to install SuperSU.

I figured that I needed to use CWM or TWRP but I can't get them to install. Odin says PASS but when I press Home + Volume Up + Power, I still get to the old, stock recovery menu.

What do I do?

EDIT: I downloaded the root66_TMO_T999UVUENC2.7z ROM from this page: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1771687 and it has rooted my phone.

Should I keep it, is it the same?

Thanks.

Keep what? Your phone is rooted, isn't that what you wanted? If you want to use the Knox remover zip download and install flashify from the playstore and you can install twrp from there, after that boot into recovery and flash the zip

But that thread is from 2012. How is it that I downloaded a 2 year-old ROM and it kept my 4.3 and simply rooted it?

It feels like I just did a random thing and got the exact result I waned..

That's because the thread was updated recently to add the newer firmwares.
