The standard Nandroid Recovery has an "apply update" option so I see no reason why you can't do this.
Personally I would always use chainfire's method highlighted in ironass' guide, but I'm just making people who may be a little tentative flashing via Odin aware of this alternative method. If your main reason for rooting is to allow you to run rooted apps from Google Play, then this method is a viable route to root!
