The easiest and safest route to root, get recovery and rom is to use a toolkit(search on xda mskip made a good one) or you can follow one of Dr. Ketans very easy and helpful guides.

not after root or custom roms , i am trying to manually upgrade the phone via odin as the update is not available on telstra version of the phone .... the reason i have asked is because i have read things dont update properly etc

If you just want to update go to sammobile and download the appropriate firmware for your model/area and flash as pda with odin. I think you have to install the drivers first so either install kies or you can use the toolkit all ready mentioned. If you need any guides then Dr ketan is the person so search for. He has written a guide on everything note 2
