Default [Q] No recovery mode, only download mode?

Hey all,

I searched a lot for an answer to this and haven't found one yet. I tried to install TWRP through GooManager, went through the motions, and it said it installed successfully. However, when I try to boot into recovery it always boots into download mode. It doesn't matter if I tell the phone to reboot into recovery, or if I do it manually. Here's what it says:

Coild not do normal boot.
ODIN MODE
<Device Details>

and then the standard download mode

Downloading...

Do not turn off target!!

Basically I now have no recovery mode?

The OS still works fine... I've also tried using Recovery Manager to flash CWM. No joy there either.

Well I've been doing a lot of research since I posted this thread, and I did find some things. First of all, I clearly didn't do enough research ahead of time because I'm using i337 MF3 and someone can correct me if I am wrong, but the loki method no longer works... which is what GooManager uses. So I haven't resigned myself to doing this yet, but I found this thread:

with the stock MF3 files... so I may just use odin to flash them back on the device.
