Umm, a couple things have been confirmed working in this thread. But ok, here's 3 different ways.

Motochopper

Odin flash CWM or TWRP. Then from recovery flash the SuperSU update.

Odin flash the Stock System from my T999L thread in the development section.

Default Motochopper

Do you think motochopper is the best solution to root my phone and are you sure it's compatible for my phone version

Others have used.it successfully, but I'd only suggest it as a last resort because all.I really know about it is it uses an exploit.
The easiest imo would be to Odin flash the Stock System in my dev thread.
The way most people do it is by Odin flashing recovery then flashing supersu.

The other issue with Motochopper is it'll be patched against soon. So you won't be able to use it in the future. May as well learn a different way now.

Go to the firmware thread linked in my Sig. Look toward the bottom of post 2.

This is what I did on my T999L, then flashed CM10.1 Nightly build. Good luck with yours.

You use odin to flash, you don't flash odin, I recommend you do a lot of research on these things, before you continue this path with your device, not knowing these things and attempting them is hazardous to your devices health. Google odin and read everything you can find on it, become comfortable with the methods before attempting them, be SAFE I know you want it now, but its worth the wait to be able to do it right!
