The point I'm trying to get across is to not use Odin to flash anything that's not specifically meant for your device. It looks like he's trying to use the stock Odin-flashable firmwares for the i9505 which would be bad... Any of the CWM-flashable ROMs in the i9505 (not i9500) are good to go.
Don't be afraid of the "Thanks" button

You are absolutely correct. I don't think he understands the difference between the two...

Um, guys, my question still seems to be unanswered: since samfirmware roms are not cwm flashable, WHERE do i find non-odin flashable stock rom? Is it even possible? I downloaded samfirmware stock rom because of the very first reply to my thread which mentioned it.

And my second question: is there a stock t mobile kernel i can use instead of the custom 'tweaked' ones?

Forget about the firmware you downloaded from sammobile it will brick your device go to the i9505 section here in XDA and download one from there and then flash it in CWM then the Tmo kernel and your done.
