No root before flashing. But if you flash the stock rom via Odin, you will need to root it again.
If you can find a flashable zip, then yes, you can use a recovery.
But OP simply wants to return to stock 4.1.1. You can get back to complete stock setup with the Odin process.
Search online for exact procedures.
