Default [Q] can i flash new custom rom without root

So,.... messing about as we do, trying to get an app to work that wont work on rooted device, I installed voodoo to temporarily hide my root and it seemed to work.
but now I cant regain root access. 1: Not sure if voodoo is the issue
2: tried all fixes that I could find on here and nothing working for me
Not really an issue at the mo and I'm sure theres a work around but this is quick fix / quick question

Can I just Flash a new custom rom without root access?
I was going to try a different rom anyway. and don't mind losing data, apps etc

just need to know that I can flash without root and not going to get stuck somewhere

Cheers

Is there not an option in Voodoo where you can hit "Restore Root" ?
Devices:
  1. Samsung Galaxy S4
    • Rooted - Stock 4.3 MK2
    • Xposed Framework
  2. Samsung Galaxy Tab2 10.1 P5113
    • Rooted - CM 10.2 [4.3.1]

Yes there is a re-root option in voodoo but this clicking this doesn't give me back root.. Titanium backup tells me I don't have root, as does a root checker basic app i have, tells me I do not have proper root access

Is the SuperSU/Superuser app still installed? If not reinstall it and reboot. Try that.
