Any ideas what i am doing wrong. Traveling and just got phone so do not have a laptop. Was trying to do via all phone. Any ideas would be helpful. Thank you

You have to be rooted to use that feature of goomanager. You are rooted, right?

I am not rooted yet. I was trying to install recovery first so I could flash one of rooted deodexed roms. If I am doing this all backwards and have to use one of the autoroots too obtain root first then I am going to have to wait till I get my laptop. Unless their is another option to root with a computer. Thank you in advance

As of now, auto root is your only option. You need root to overwrite your current recovery, so hang tight until you can use CFAR

I tried installing this recovery in place of the CWM recovery that I had previously loaded, but it doesn't seem to work with the external SD card loaded in my phone. (It won't mount an external SD card or allow me to set it as a backup location.)

- Does this recovery not work with SD cards in the Sprint Samsung Galaxy Note II?
- Are 64 GB SD cards not supported?

Look 1 page back, bigbiff explained that.

Hummm .... I now see where the issue with 64GB SD cards is mentioned. (I now see it on page 2, not page 1.)

Guess I'll switch back to CWM 6.xxx. The 64GB SD card works fine with that.

What filesystem are you using. If you can paste recovery.log we can take a look to see what TWRP is seeing.

I looked on my phone and I can't find a file called "recovery.log". What folder is it normally written to?

In recovery, it's in /tmp. You can also copy that log to sdcard, I believe that is an option in advanced menu.
