first of all you can't install a recovery like twrp or CWM nor can you flash any ROMS using those recoveries. Its been made clear countless times with countless threads that any S4 since MDK build can not have a recovery as their bootloaders are locked. The ONLY avenue is safestrap and the handful of safestrap compatible ROMS.
A bricked phone is the end result.
so long Verizon and my awesome S4 , hello TMO G3
