Hi... from your instructions when it mentions on #2 copy the the tar into the folder, which one? cause right at the bottom on #8 it mentions choose the recovery tar. A noob questions, but just want to make sure

1) Download the above files
2) Extract Odin3-3.04.zip and copy the tar that you downloaded into the folder
3) Run Odin as an administrator
4) Power your device off
5) Press and hold volume down and power to enter download mode
6a) Connect your phone to your computer
6b) Wait for drivers to finish installing if they need to be
7) You should see Odin find your device by marking a blue square in the ID COM box
8) Click on PDA and choose the recovery tar you downloaded
9) Click start

so 1.0.3.3 is the latest release correct? also just took a notice on the following:

With the SGS4 samsung has introduced a setuid kernel, which will block root access. you will need to flash a source compiled kernel in order to fully root.

I haven't update to new firmware or received any, will I have any issues after I followed you instructions/post in here

Thanks

sorry, all the features of oudhs recovery were merged into regular CWM. so if you use rom manager and flash CWM latest (6.0.4.4) youll actually have a working recovery with swipe controls

thanks but philz doesnt seem to have the same control as oudhs: swipe left to go back and swipe right to select which i miss.

unless im missing something in settings. ive looked and tried the options under Gesture Actions Settings while having Touch GUI set to full with no luck.
