    If you want to make it flashable with Odin, follow these steps:

    1) Rename the file recovery.img
    2) issue these commands:
    Code (Text):
    1.  
    2. tar -H ustar -c recovery.img > CWM-Recovery.tar
    3. md5sum -t CWM-Recovery.tar >> CWM-Recovery.tar
    4. mv CWM-Recovery.tar CWM-Recovery.tar.md5
    5.  
    Then, to flash it:

    1) Open ODIN 4.40 USA
    2) Click the "OPS" button & select the Gt2_tmo_v1.0.ops file
    3) Checkmark "One Package" in the Options section
    4) Click the "One Package" button and select the CWM-Recovery.tar.md5 you created above
    5) Click Start

    After you flash, you can test it by holding 't' on the keyboard while the phone boots.

    mmand
    E: cant find misc
    E: failed to find "cach" partition to mount at "/cach"
    E: cant mount /cach/recovery/log
    E: cant open /cach/recovery/log
    E:failed to find "cach" partition to mount at "/cach"
    E: cant mount /cach/recovery/last_log

    if you're wondering what is looks like, goto this link. (I used the Samsung Galaxy Q (SGH-T589R)

    also, here's what it says:
    mmand
    E:Can't find misc
    E:failed to find "Cache" partiti
    on to mount at "/cache"
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/lo
    g
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/log
    E:failed to find "cache" partiti
    on to mount at "/cache"
    E:Can't mount /cache/recovery/la
    st_log
    E:Can't open /cache/recovery/las
    t_log
    E:Can't find misc
    E:failed to find "cache" partiti
    on to mount at "/cache"
