Default What happened to my phone???

So I flashed Paranoid-Android Jellybean and it just screwed up my phone. I had to use Odin to bring it back to stock. Now I've got it almost back to where I want it but I can't for the life of me get CWM recovery onto my phone. Its got super user on it and I can go into the CWM app and tell it to flash CWM and it says it was successful but upon booting into recovery I'm getting the Android 3e recovery with signature verification. I've tried to replace the recovery file with the modified one but if I reboot my phone it just hangs at the Samsung screen. I tried to install SGS kernel flasher as well but its failing to download/install it. Hopefully someone can point out what I'm doing wrong because I don't remember ever having this much trouble.

Alright, downloaded and used that program. It went through and flashed perfectly fine and was easy to use; only issue is my recovery didn't work any better. I was able to boot into recovery but when I did it was just a scrambled mess of colors. I then used Odin to flash back and now I'm back at the Android 3e recovery again. I've tried to replace the recovery file and boot into recovery but it just hangs at the Samsung logo and if I replace the update.zip it won't flash because its not signed correctly. I've also tried to flash via Rom Manager and it says it went through and was successful and has my "latest version" set as the version I just flashed.

I'm lost as to what I'm doing wrong.

Ok- it may be a process but I am willing to help you figure this out. Once you learn, as long as you are going to be flashing roms, it will come in handy in the future. Couple of questions:
Have you used Heimdall before?
Did you also flash the kernel (Entropy's Daily Driver) in post 2?

Ok didn't even notice there was a way of installing the kernel that way. Did it and now I have a working recovery!!! Thank you so much. I've bricked my phone before but odin fixed it no problem. I'll keep this in mind next time. Saved me a lot of time.
