As far as I know you can, but then you can only flash a stock Samsung ROM, just like most other Samsung phones. What Libs did here is loaded a custom ROM which will always require root
Jr's dronk, FanieAh, like I said, and I'm guess you of the same opinion. Rooting is just necessary if you want to flash that customer ROM, not stock.
You can load CWM using Odin and then load the Custom firmware also using Odin. All you need to do is put the phone into Download Mode
