I copied the tar.exe and md5sum.exe from Cygwin bin folder. got the tar built ok. opened it with 7zip to check if the file was in there and it was with permissions of 0rwxr-xr-x. did the command for md5sum and then opened with 7zip again, and it gave me an error before it opened. "there is no correct record at the end of archive" then it opened. But the permissions are different from the one I know works. In screenshot below, the one that works is on top, the one I made is on the bottom. Not the differences in "mode". do you think that will make any difference?

No the differences are just that the second has an md5 file that can be checked by odin

So that should be good to go then? The mode makes no difference? and lastly, the error when opening the tar after doing the md5sum command doesn't matter, the tar is made properly considering I followed the instructions, and to make sure, I used copy and paste on the command lines to make it. Fingers are crossed LOL...

I think it's good and if you want to flash it use odin3 3.07 because it checks the md5 before clicking start

It worked!!! I did use odin3 3.07 as you suggested but it didn't check the md5 before installing. Didn't matter, it changed the bootscreen to Galaxy S Advance, from my current one that says Galaxy SII lite Thanks for your great help!!! Will give you credit for the lessons I learned when I post this.
