Default Rooting w/o a PC?

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.) ?

Have you searched XDA for a SU.zip you can flash via custom recovery?

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
