True, and the solution is to flash one of the acceptable recoveries for your Android version and device; stock, TWRP, Philz.

Does stock recovery succeed and does it clear the SEAndroid warning? If yes, yes then I can only suggest that you are trying to flash an incompatible custom recovery. I don't use Windows so I can't check your use of Odin. Try writing the partition with 'dd' as I described earlier.

That also suggests that you somehow got the wrong TWRP. If your device is the SM-N900T and it is running Android 4.4.anything then this is what you need:

If Odin wants a zip instead of a tar then this instead:

https://goo.im/devs/OpenRecovery/hlt...ltetmo-4.4.zip

Those are in the official TWRP repository.

Now that you got it working you probably want to leave it as it is, but while you have that procedure fresh in your mind is probably the best time to try to get the right TWRP working.
