well as the title suggests, i have tried TWRP and CWM through Odin 3 but somehow the device always goes to stock recovery when ever i try to go in to the custom recovery. have tried unified toolkit as well but it is showing some different problem (see screenshot).

The toolkit had an option to rename stock recovery files that worked like a charm on my s3 but on my s4, its not working....dont know why.... Also when i tried to flash permanent_recovery.zip through ADB sideload from stock recovery, following errors appeared;

e:footer is wrong
e: signature verification failed

I have searched the forums but nothing matched the i9505....

the phone specs are attached on screenshots...

Please help... after updating to 4.4.2 my phone's battery has gone worse.....need to install custom ROM...

I never ran into any problems regarding the custom ROMs. Have you followed exactly how to install them? I used Odin 3 to flash TWRP on my device, and I did not run into the problem you are experiencing.

Just flash TWRP recovery true Odin.

I don't think you can flash the custom recovery with toolkit when you don't already have a custom recovery.
