this might be the cause, so we need do clean wipe of all the data/ files in your internal storage. We need to make it boot first since it's not just a recovery problem but ROM.

Do you still have the touchwiz rom in your external sd-card? If it's still there, do this steps in cmw:

select "wipe data / factory reset"
go to "mounts & storage" and format /system. This is extremely important!
under the same menu, format /sdcard0 (be careful NOT to format /sdcard1 by mistake)
install touchwiz
reboot

What's the point of having a smartphone if you turn off every function that makes it smart?

If its touchwi5, you dont have to install gapps, they are already in there

Download the .op and the cwm recovery (Flashable via odin multi downloader ) Here

And make sure you are running Windows 7, and not Windows 8, I have experienced problems flashing recovery on Windows 8 64bit
Thanks! I flashed this Phil's Cwm and then flashed the cm 11 Kitkat 4.4 and gapps and it is working!! Thank you!
