hi

root is not necessary only if you need it , for flashing you need custom recovery (twrp) and rom

from the thread

Installation instructions

I only support the latest TWRP recovery, AT&T users must loki after flashing

-Full wipe
-Flash ROM
-Reboot
Read before doing
Search before asking
Don’t just say thanks if the information was useful, hit thanks too……

Omega one of the last good roms for the I9500 keep it alive , DONATE , your phone will thank you ....

You should root because only then you would be able to back up EFS, and EFS backup is very recommended before you Flash anything custom.
