It will work.

Install it in recovery, not in Odin though. If you install the full ROM in Odin it will include the international radio, which will cause problems. You want to keep your current T Mobile radio.

You may need to flash a T Mobile kernel as well. You'd do that in recovery too if it's needed. Flash the ROM first and see if it works first.

If you can't find a flashable 9505 stock ROM, you can use any 9505 rom. There are plenty of them available.
Do you want insanely better battery drain when your phone is idle? Check out this thread!

Thanks for your time, the t Mobile radio no matter, because i use the phone with other carrier(no t Mobile) If i do this by Odin, can you tell me the problem that i could have?

The T Mobile radio DOES matter.

It's not just the part that communicates with the cell towers. There's a lot of other stuff in a radio.img that needs to match the other subtle differences in the phone.

Do NOT change the radio. If you have a GSM cell network in your county the phone will work. If you change the radio the phoen will most likely not boot.

Hi Skipjacks, I have m919v so I can use custom roms from 9505 but kernel need fix it, or I should port deleting radio?
