Default [Q] Someone plz help a n00b trying to root...

Any help or advice here would be GREATLY appreciated --

Q: Is it possible to get root on my S3? SCH-I535 running stock android 4.3 (I535VRUCNC1)

First, I am new to rooting so please refrain from ridicule... I have been online literally since this morning trying to find a way to do this, so needless to say I have searched. Tried Motochopper in OS X, and when that didn't work, went so far as to install Windows in VMware to try saferoot and CF autoroot--still no luck. From what I've read, I am I correct in understanding that this may not be possible? Bottom line: All I want is root in order to mount the internal memory to a volume for recovery of deleted files.

Thanks!

You're gonna have to ODIN back to ML1. NC1 has a Saferoot/Safestrap patch... The is thread on it. XDA search is your friend...

Thanks guys, but I've just about given up on this and am not too eager to dig my hole deeper. I'll spare the details as to why I'm doing this, but at this rate I also wonder if my files could even be recovered from internal memory after 2 days anyway.

I tried reverting to ML1 with the method here: [GUIDE Win/Linux/Mac] Debrick 4.3 with Odin or Verizon Utility + PIT [SOFT BRICK]
and had even worse luck as it ended up soft-bricking my phone into Odin/download mode loop that said "firmware upgrade encountered an issue..." Fortunately this morning I gave it one last go assuming nothing to lose and tried repartitioning with just the pit file in Odin 3.07, and that got it to reboot.
@Rushead, I have tried the method in that link to the best of my ability and haven't had any luck. It fails at writing NAND.

I wonder if the fact that I'm attempting this on my mac in a Windows XP x64 virtual machine is part of the problem. I hadn't used it in years and ran a ton of updates, but I've been getting errors to the effect of "Wlanapi.dll is missing" since installing the samsung drivers and Kies. Perhaps I just can't get the drivers to install correctly?
