Here's a video tutorial for how to root T-Mobile Galaxy S3 SGH-T999, specifically for T-Mobile.

For T-Mobile, you will have to get into CWM recovery by holding down Volume Up + Center + Power button, then let go of Power button upon reset, a small difference between other U.S. Galaxy S3s but I see most people are having trouble with just getting into recovery after flashing with ODIN so here's a noob-proof video:

I didn't download Kies...did this on my work computer which definitely has never had any Samsung phone software on it.

It's running Windows 7 64-bit Professional if that helps.

my home desktop (Windows 7 64-bit Ultimate) didn't need it either - just tested now. All I installed on both machines were the normal USB drivers.
