Here is my issue....I rooted my i545 from Verizon running 4.3 , build ver. MK2. Got Rom Manager, installed ClockworkMod and it flashed without issue...so it said.

So when I reboot into recovery mode, it tells me it errors out but it's saying the recovery mode is Android Recovery mode, like the CWM recovery did not take. Is this an issue with my Verizon i545 or is this a new issue?

Any ideas on what I am doing wrong? I have rooted some Droid phones in the past but this is my first attempt at this Samsung...

You can't install a custom recovery with your build. Your ONLY option is Safestrap. It's been talked about countless times. Do a lot of research. I suggest starting with this thread. http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2606501
