Question [Q] Question About Custom Rom Flashing

I am trying to Flash this custom Rom:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2343355

To my VZW SGS4, I can not find the MD5 file to use Odin. When I reboot into recovery its not showing the file, I've tried search youtube for help and read through a lot of the comments most say something about Safestrap? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I'm coming from the world of apple for the past 5 years so this is new to me. Odin has been a huge help by restoring the stock rom when I mess it up haha.

as a base I'm ME7, I don't have a custom recovery that I know of? Why is it bad to use Odin to flash a custom rom?

ME7.... You need Safestrap. No custom recovery. Only 4.2 TW based ROMs. As far as Odin, I don't know why it's bad. I just know it doesn't work.
Research, research, research. You will save yourself a lot of headaches.

odin is used to update phone base firmware...a custom recovery is used to flash roms....these threads are filled with those who either wouldn't research what they needed to know or ignored what many were trying to tell them
