    Ok so i made this tool for personal use, but i saw a lot of people wanted this, so here it is

    Step 1. Download it from ATTACHMENTS
    Step 2. Decompress it to a folder
    Step 3. Download your recovery for your SAMSUNG device from here
    http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager/
    Step 4. Rename it to "recovery.img" then move it to the folder you decompressed the tool at earlier
    Step 5. Open the "Runme" file and theres your recovery.tar.md5 File ready to flash with odin

    please if you used my tool give me some credit and relink to this page as the tool you used to make the file

    I had the same error that several others had when trying this out (out of gid_t range). I fixed it by editing Runme.bat and adding --group=1 to the tar line so that it looks like this:

    Code:
    bin\tar --group=1 -H ustar -c recovery.img > recovery.tar

    Great tool, once editing this it did exactly what I needed! Thanks!

    FIX for script errors and not running

    Script is invalid due to `tar` command

    FIX :

    1-right click "Runme.bat" and choose "edit" from menu.
    2-convert second line which is
    Code:
    bin\tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > recovery.tar
    to
    Code:
    bin\tar -cf recovery.tar recovery.img
    3-save file and close notepad.
    4-put recovery.img file in the folder and run "Runme.bat"

    make sure to first remove the existent recovery.tar.md5 from the folder (I don't think it matters but prompt wouldn't come up for overwrite).

    @cabloomi good effort and nice tool, saved me personally the trouble of rebooting every time I have to create a .tar.md5 from a .img, I don't know why you used the tar command in this way though, `man tar` clearly states command `tar -cf archive.tar foo` to create .tar files. Please clear that up for me. Same thing with `md5sum`, if you look up man for it, the command is different.

    EDIT: I attached a file with the script fixed.

    How do you do this excatly? Sorry such a noob question.

    Figured it out! Thanks!

    For those who don't know, you can right-click on the "recovery.img" file you moved into the folder you extracted the tool into and open it with cmd (command prompt)(browse for cmd if it's not listed) and then copy the code gIMpSTa wrote above and paste it in the cmd and press enter to send that command and then it's done. A TAR file called "recovery" shows up in the folder you extracted the tool into and you then just use that file in odin! ta-da!

    Very useful, but for win 8.1 x64 the first line in the "runme.bat" will be
    Code:
    bin\tar --group=1 -H ustar -c recovery.img > recovery.tar
    not the
    Code:
    bin\tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > recovery.tar

    Thanks to gIMpSTa
