Default Problem with recovery

OK bare with me as I say all this .

I was on 4.1.2 and wanted to update to 4.3 Moar. I updated my radio and flashed the rom it would come up the first time then every time I rebooted it came to the Samsung galaxy s3 and just hangs. it was suggested that I update my recovery. So I reflashed and downloaded Goo manager and downloaded the recovery. now when I boot it still hangs on the samsung gs3 logo . Boot into recovery and the CM mascot comes up for a sec then asks for password and will not let me do anything in recovery. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
