Default How to flash CWM Touch as image

Hey there,
I need help for flashing the CWM Touch recovery as image I downloaded from CWM homepage.
My P7500 is rooted and still working with CWM recovery. Now I want to update to the touch version but I can only install as zip via CWM or as md5 (or others) via Odin but not as img.
How is it to flash?
Regards.....

Make a nandroid...then flash the zip in recovery. Then pick reboot recovery and enjoy
Note3 : Jelly 'Beans' ( 4.3 )
E4GT : Vanir( 4.4.2 )

Thanks Dev's for these Awesome Roms...

There are 3 ways to flash a recovery, depending on what type it is.

1. If it is a recovery.zip type, just flash it in recovery like any other zip file.

2. If it is a .tar.md5 or .tar file, flash it in Odin.

3. If it is a img file, rename it to recovery.img, and copy it to the root of your SD card, in terminal or adb shell, do this command:
Code:
su
dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p2
If you want to flash as img but the file is zip or .tar.md5, simply open up the zip file and extract the img file inside. For .tar.md5, rename it to .tar first, and extract it. The img file is inside too.

The terminal mode was the right one.
Thanks for all answers.
Wish you all a merry Christmas.

A bit off-topic, but there is also twrp 2.6.0.0 available for our Tab.
