Default [Q] CWM won't go away

Hi All…

This is a NOOB question, so if I'm in the wrong place, please accept my apologies and direct me to the right forum. With that said, here's my question: Through Google Play I put both CWM and TWRP on my Nexus 7 to see which one I liked better. I happen to like TWRP, so I uninstalled CWM. This strikes me a completely weird, but every time I reboot into recovery mode CWM keeps coming up…not TWRP. This is frustrating the crap out of me. On another posting I read that someone else was having this same problem. One of the posted solutions was to erase the recovery partition and then flash TWRP through fastboot. THIS is a bit above my pay grade, but I'd really like to learn how to do this. Would someone mind giving me a quick tutorial or at least send me to the appropriate posting so can read how to do this? I'm a quick learner and I promise I won't take up too much of your time. Thank you to all who bother to chime in.

A recovery is not an app that you can just install and uninstall. You need to flash the recovery image you want, in your case TWRP.
