from my experience in flashing phones, it would be best to upgrade the firmware before flashing the custom over it.
its like installing a windows theme, you can't run it without the windows installed first.
its the safe route, rather flashing the custom straight ahead and accidentally bricking your phone.
if the custom rom says you have to flash to the stock rom or upgrade to the stock if coming from a lower version, then do so.
its better safe than sorry.
