Default [Q] TWRP doesn't replace CWM

I'm having some trouble with installing a new recovery. I want to have TWRP because I want to install a ROM that requires it. At the moment I have some old CWM but when I flash TWRP and reboot into recovery I still get into CWM.

So how do I replace CWM or at least boot into TWRP?

Try 4ext recovery, in my opinion i think its better. Also u cant flash recovery "flash zip from sdcard" u have to either use fastboot command

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Or via PB99IMG method or using the 4ext app but u can only use the app once ur phone is booted.
