I get the same problem as root in terminal:
flash_image recovery /mnt/sdcard/recovery.img

error scanning partitions: no such file or directory

- ROM Manager won't work; the "flash touch recovery" says "not supported" on this phone. The recovery download also doesn't work; the Galaxy Note is not listed, despite it being on the clockworkmod website!

- ODIN won't work as it needs a tar file or md5, or similar.

- There is no tar file in this thread or anywhere else I can find. If anyone knows exactly where this can be found, that would be helpful!

Basically, if I could find an easy way to "tar" up the recovery.img, it might work with ODIN. This might work, as past tars had only the one file within, but I need a UNIX OS to use the tar command. Drat!

UPDATE: I tarred it in the terminal and will now try ODIN. I hope it works....

UPDATE #2 - yep, it works!

Here's how I installed/upgraded CWM to 5.8.4.3 this is an A in Q&A
I was on the April version of CWM and was fat and happy, then I thought I'd try ICS, and didn't much care for what I was finding, then I read about another one I thought I'd try, but it (apparently) required a newer version of CWM, 5.8.4.3 i think.
So ROM Manager from the play store wouldn't do the upgrade for me, kept giving errors.
I'd used odin to install the april .tar, but this new version comes in an .img file.
I downloaded the .img file and placed it on my phone in sdcard (/mnt/sdcard)
searched high and low for a few hours, found a semi-cogent post about how to install it using adb from your PC, i guess.
adb is in the SDK which you can get from here:
http://developer.android.com/sdk/index.html
I installed this and I located adb here: C:\androidsdk\android-sdk-windows\platform-tools

on my PC from the command line (start, run, cmd, ENTER) I changed directories to that directory.
I executed, still on the command line: adb shell
:
This presented me the the octothorpe (hashtag if you must) prompt:#
at the # prompt I entered WITHOUT the double quote, ditto marks (")
"dd if=/sdcard/recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.4.3-quincyatt.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22"
so it looked like this:

#dd if=/sdcard/recovery-clockwork-touch-5.8.4.3-quincyatt.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p22

I pressed enter and it ran pretty quickly and returned to the (apparent) adb prompt # then I typed exit and it dumped me to the C: prompt and I exited that too (so there!), Then I rebooted the phone into recovery mode using one of many nifty reboot apps in the play store, so I don't have to have my fingers holding this slick and slippery buttons.
I verified I was in the new version of CWM, and rebooted to make sure my phone was still breathing... it was so I bailed back into recovery and am now running a backup... then I'll try to install the new ICS ROM, although it looks way too small to me.
I've gathered that the # prompt is the root prompt in adb, so either I'm very lucky and it does this by default, or adb detected my rooted phone... if you've read this far your guess is as good as mine.
I hope this helped someone from having to google for hours and hours into the night, and then not oversleep, not be late to work, not get fired, not go on unemployment, etc.
or not.

if you are running an unsecured kernel, adb should start with root rights of I'm not mistaken...also when you were done moving the recovery file instead of exiting the adb session and the c prompt altogether
You could have simply used the command:
Adb reboot recovery
And in fact..That's all those apps do.


Also of you copy the files in your android sdk platform-tools folder:
Aapt.exe
Adb.exe
Adbwinapi.dll
Adbwinusbapi.dll
Into your main Windows folder, you no longer have to cd to the platform-tools folder, you can use adb as a global command.
