I assume it shouldn't be mandatory so if you want to be on the safe side, don't re-partition.

I downloaded it also, but am waiting for the IT guy to come enter the admin passwd (at work and don't have admin access lol) so I can start odin.

    Thank you xDroidZz, also for collecting infos to your first post. Now I have my miracast, apt-x and smart stay back. Custom ROMs are nice but lack of some proprietary features.

    For a clean installation I advise a full wipe before you flash. For flashing the ROM follow the steps from post 1. After that let the device auto-reboot directly to android. To let the system setting up it self. After the first boot there will be no wifi problem, and no lost CSC problem will appear. Flash a custom recovery after your phone did a first boot to system/android.
    Don't flash the bootloader (BL file) if you want back to stock KitKat 4.4.2 later.

    I flashed this I9505XXUHOA7 ROM several times with different steps. Most of the time I had no wifi and missing CSC info. I found the issue. Odin3 v3.10 does not write the modem.img to the phone, it also does not write CSC Infos to the phone. Or the images were overwritten/refused or deleted by the phone. A full wipe (not efs and modem) and a direct "auto-reboot" is the key. So check that "auto-reboot" box. These problem had only to do with the flash and setup order.

    If there are some guys who already flashed this ROM please look at your baseband version. You might want to upgrade to I9505XXUHOA7 if something behaves wrong, especially wifi. See below how to get wifi. But better do a full wipe and flash again. If CSC is missing use my advise above, do a full wipe, flash again.

    I9505XXUHOA7 firmware impressions:
    - Camera Firmware Update: The first time you start the camera app your camera firmware will be updated automatically. Don't avoid that. Some camera menus are faster now. First picture impressions: Not better :/ More grainy? Camera starts faster with severall apps.
    - Very fast overall response in touch and starting/switching apps. But not as good as CyagonenMod or Google Play Edition Lollipops. Better than Samsungs Kit Kat 4.4.2. A long way better. Set timings to 0.5 in the develeper options.
    - Sometimes apps in background will be cached if you drive your phone hard. Then lags occour. The phones uses very high memory. :/
    - Some apps got more and useful things. Like S Planner Calender, Clock app
    - New features: S Finder, Quick Connect (the "super idiot connection mode", finds all devices nearby like BT, Wifi-direct, DLNA, miracast,... )
    - All Samsung apps match the new design. All Samsung apps have higher resolution now (fonts, menus, icons,...) Very sharp and clear. It's a good thing.

    How-to get wifi working after all?
    Simply flash 'the modem only' with Odin. This can be done at any time. Also if your done with setting up your device and also if you already flashed a custom recovery and did a root.
    - Start Odin3 v3.10, put the extracted "CP" file "CP_I9505XXUHOA7_CL3996895_QB3867680_REV06_user_low_ship_MULTI_CERT.tar.md5" into the "CP" field. You can leave the "options" checkboxes as is.
    - Boot your S4 into download mode. Connect your S4 via USB. Flash it / press Start button.
    - Reboot your S4. Check your baseband version in "settings -> options -> device info". It should be: I9505XXUHOA7
