But that's pretty much the only reference I've found. The firmware isn't listed on sammobile.com nor any other info. Might be risky to root without having the firmware available. Can you post the other info like build version, baseband version, etc?
Need some help, advice, something fixed? Hit me up on Hangouts @ es0tericcha0s and check out my site: http://mobilemojo5280.com for more info!

(One+1 maybe...)

Yea...It's risky to try and mod a phone that you don't know what it is or even if there is firmware available. Think you're in for a long road to recovery if it is possible at all... I'm pretty certain it's not an S3 though, unless it was a special demo model. I've seen or read about every other variant of the S3 and have never heard or seen this model anywhere. There are only 2 S3 T-Mobile variants - t999 and t999l.
