I recently installed CyanogenMod10 on my phone, and it came with CWM installed. I wanted to replace it with TWRP so I installed goomanager to do an openrecoveryscript. However when it came to rebooting it just launched CWM in recovery instead of TWRP. I installed CWM Rom manager and found that both CWM and TWRP are installed. How do i get rid of one?

I found a similar forum thread however it was with a GS3. I was thinking about using the Nexus4 toolkit but I don't think that is compatible with Cyanogenmod as it is bases its mods on stock builds.

Thanks

noob question, how do I flash a .img file through CWM? It seems that you can only install Zip files.

I also tried the Mskip toolkit and it said that it cannot open the recovery.img on my phone.

It really shouldn't have taken me this long to find it, easier on my computer.

Of course download the twrp.zip. It says that trwp doesn't work with Kit Kat custom roms, but I have no problems. YMMV.

Got it, I flashed the recovery through ADB that worked. Thanks for everyone's help.

For future reference, one of the easiest ways to flash .img files is with the app Flashify.
