Default [Q] Installing Custom Recovery Twice

I installed a custom recovery through the WUG method before someone directed me to the GooManager method which seems a lot easier. They both install the same custom recovery (TWRP). In the app it asks if i want to install a custom recovery so does that mean if i install the TWRP again I'll be able to use GooManager for finding roms and nothing will break, can i download the roms from GooManager and just flash it from there using my already installed recovery (without installing the same recovery from GooManager), or should i just go the long way and install through the quickboot method?

It doesn't matter. Once you have recovery, you have recovery. It's a partition on your device that doesn't care where it comes from.

Like pirateghost said it doesn't matter. But I wouldn't use goomanager to flash roms. Download then from xda and flash them in twrp. Goo manager can be a brick waiting to happen if you're not careful.

Use xda not goo. This is personal opinion I am leery of it and do not trust it entirely to modify my phone.

1) Ditch the toolkit, save a kitten. Use fastboot to install a custom recovery.
2) Ditch GooManager, it's too unreliable to use to mod your OS. Download custom ROMs and kernels from XDA.

After viewing threads of what the ROM manager app had done to some people's phone I would follow Birch's advice.
