Default [Q] Can i flash new rom after root loss

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 as a quick fix / quick question

Can I just Flash a new custom rom while I no longer have 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

You can flash everything if you have a Custom recovery Installed eg : CWM or TWRP, Because both has Root enabled by default, even if the Rom doesn't have Root that doesn't mean your recovery doesn't have root, If the rom only doesn't has Root, you Recvoery has.
That means you still can flash everything. (I recommend to use the lastest version if you have a old version)
Current phone : LG Google Nexus 5
Rom : Stock 4.4.2 (Not Rooted)

Still own : HTC Desire HD,LG Google Nexus 4
Rom : Taktik 4.4.2 R1,Calkulin's Nexus 4 v1.5 (4.4.2)

Tablet : Nexus 7 2013
Rom : Stock 4.4.2 (Not rooted)

Previous Device´s :
Samsung galaxy nexus
Samsung galaxy note II
Samsung galaxy mega 6.3 (Gave to my father)
Samsung galaxy S3 (Gave to my girlfriend )
Asus Transformer Pad TF300
Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10.1 P5210

Default no custom rom installed

i had rooted my phone but for clearing up internal memory i did a factory reset.
After that i noticed my wifi stopped working and i had sort if partial root(root explorer worked but titanium backup didnt).
In order to correct that i tried to manually update the su binary by replacing the original with the latest one.once i did that i lost root completely.
T_T now i am stuck up with a non root phone without wifi working.
I tried flashing it but that also requires root.
Any help will be appriciated

my phone is spicemi280(stock)

Default please give a solution

hey guys i despirately need a solution to my problem

I had rooted my phone but after some time for clearing up
internal memory i did a factory reset.
After that i noticed my wifi stopped working and i had sort of
partial root(root explorer worked but titanium backup didn't).
In order to correct that i tried to manually update the su
binary by replacing the original with the latest one.Once i did
that i lost root completely.
Now i am stuck up with a non root phone without wifi
working.
I tried flashing it but that also requires root.
Tried rerooting it with superoneclick(used the same method to
root earlier) but it returned access denied
Any help will be appriciated
