Default [Q] How do I root the Samsung Galaxy Light SGH T399

How do I root the Samsung Galaxy Light SGH T399?

I've followed the guides to root the GS4 but I don't want to brick this GL. Any pointers?
Thank you.

I don't have to have a recovery image just yet but root would be nice.

Don't do it. My friend tried to do it and now it stuck on the Samsung greeting Screen. I wonder if you guys could give me the backup recovery image and stock ROM for this phone so I could try to fix it?
Thanks.

Thanks.
Did you try to flash a new recovery with Odin? I was told to only try an adb sideload root for now.

I can't even do that as I can't find the stock recovery image. Were you successful with your adb sideload root?
