I did something stupid and installed rom manager, it corrupted my recovery. I restored to stock rom i found online using odin but it says you need to wipe factory settings to make it boot. The recovery is now the stock one but it displays error messages and when I choosed a command it does nothing. What should I do?

EDIT: I flashed another stock rom this time i could boot into the phone. Some of my apps went missing and superuser went missing. It was a little weird. The recovery still shows errors and no command. It says
"can't access to '/system/csc/VAU/system". I don't think I can root it again and install a custom rom. I dont know what is the right thing to do now. I just want to root it and install a rom

EDIT2: I installed another recovery called Amon-RA recovery and I still get errors. I am thinking maybe the recovery partition is corrupted. I get these errors.

E: Can't mount CACHE:recovery/command
E: Can't mount /dev/block/stl14
(invalid argument)
E: Can't mount CACHE:recovery/log
E: Can't open CACHE:recovery/log
E: Can't mount /dev/block/stl14
(invalid argument)
