As for your previous post, the Clockwork downloads are under the 'Rom Manager' tab here: http://www.clockworkmod.com/
Twrp recovery here: http://teamw.in/project/twrp2
(Hit 'Get TWRP for your device' then this link at bottom of page 'Download - Odin Flashable Tar:').
Which you chose depends on which you had before the issue and whether you want to restore a previous backup once recovery is restored. If you are not going to be restoring a back up, I'd recommend the TWRP file as it can be flashed with Odin.
Your other option is to Flash a stock firmware from Odin and start from scratch. This can be the more labor intensive way because you then need to setup the phone again and get it back to how you like it. The benefit of this method is that it wipes absolutely everything, including whatever problem had you screwed in the first place. Because I tinker with my phone a lot, I always have everything important stored on an external SD. Pictures, Titanium Backup, Nandroid, etc. If you have backups of everything you need off the phone, I'd recommend that you Odin it. If you do not have things backed up try installing recovery first and getting the phone to boot. In the end if you do chose this method you should still wipe as there was obviously something that really buggered your phone and a wipe will be the best way to fix that so it doesn't recur. That's my opinion anyway.
Flashing ROMs - 60% of the time, it works every time!
