Seems like I need my hand held with every step of this process!

To extract the img from the tar, I did the following:

1) extracted with 7-zip
2) left me with a "recovery.bin"
3) dropped that file into sgs2oext4
4) in diskinternals linux reader, I select "mount image"

For step 4, I don't get a mount.

I think the problem is with step 3, the recovery.ext4.img file is 0KB, I've left it running on sgs20ext4 for at least 30 minutes and nothing changed.

How am I screwing up?

You might only be able to use odin to flash since its a tar file already

Will this preserve the data/settings on the phone?

I read on another forum where the same tying happened to another guy and he flashed just the bootloader through odin and it did not touch any of the other partitions (data/settings) but since I have not done this myself I can not guarantee it.

If you flash recovery in Odin it will not wipe your device

Try a different usb port and cable. Odin can be finicky

Tried it using multiple ports, 2 cables (1 original), and two computers. Same results...

Ok dumb question but I have to ask... You put the phone in download mode (power off... Then power on holding volume down home key and power) then plugged it in while odin was up? If so then try this

Found it!!!!! Ok using odin 1.85 you can flash each part of the firmware separately. Put phone in download node plug into pc while running odin and flash just the recovery but put it in the recovery slot of odin

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=46943588

This helped me when I did the same thing as you while on mf3
