I have lost root access from flashing a ROM...I am not able to access a PC at the moment...is there a way to root my phone again without using a PC (hooking phone up via USB and flashing cf auto root via Odin etc.) ?

If that search fails you, try towel root. I haven't used it myself but it's an apk root and it might substitute until you have access to a pc
