Not to be nit-picky but the ebay listing you posted clearly states:

"This USB jig can only bring your phones into Download Mode. It CANNOT reset your phone binary counter and remove yellow triangle.." right above the instructions for the jig.

Default Disconnect the USB Cable

I was having an issue getting into CWM recovery but the problem seemed to be that I still had the the USB cable plugged in. So unplug the USB cable and you should be good to go.

WARNING: I HAVE NOT TESTED THIS

If I am not mistaking, couldn't ODIN be run in Lunix under Wine? If not, there is always the option of a Virtual OS in Linux, just use a lightweight version of Win 2003 or XP maybe?

Default Launching Recovery

FYI -I am using the TMOBILE Samsung SIII - initially, I struggeled getting into Recovery - after a bunch of trial and error I found the only method that works for me is: Hold Volume Up/Power/Home simultaneiously - release all three as soon asthe words "Samsung" (in block letters) flashes once - a second of two later you will see Samsung in a fancier type face - screen goes dark once more and then you are in CWM.
WHen I tried launching recovery any other way I coudn't get there - the phone would either turn off completely or it would boot simply launch the normal start up.

I didn't know if others had the same issue as I did when they first tried launching recovery so I thought I would share -
My Phone Galaxy S5 G900T
My Rom: | Alliance 4.1 | CyanogenMod 11.0 | Android 4.4.4 KitKat (KLTE - UNIFIED)
My Recovery: TWRP
Kernel: KT-SGS5 - with KTWEAKER
My Carrier - ATT
