Default Running Custom Rom & rooting

I am currently running a custom rom (slimbean). My phone unrooted for some reason. Can I use Odin and reroot while running Slimbean?

Thanks for the help.

Well at least precise what phone you got :/
I'll assume you got a Galaxy S3, then check this thread to root your phone.

Usually all you have to do is
Code:
  • Download this file
  • Put it on your SD Card
  • Reboot into recovery
  • Flash it
  • ... and you're done.
You don't need odin
A THANKS is always welcomed

Thanks for the help. I'll have to try it this weekend. I'm assuming after I do that ez unlocker has to be run for the bootloader, right?

Yep. The steps for EZ Unlocker are very easy once your phone is rooted
