CWM's last update is inside CM 11. When you install CM 11 from ddlf2 base the CWM recovery will be automatically updated!

Flash DDLF2 via odin

Flash CF-root ------> DDLF2 and CF-root here http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2329200

Copy CM 11 in ext sd card from PC

Go to recovery vol up+home+power (this recovery is in green color), go to "mounts and storage" and mount all you can see is unmounted.

Flash CM 11

Now you are on the new CWM recovery (in light blue color)

Go to "mounts and storage" and mount all you can see is unmounted.

Flash CM 11

Reboot recovery

Flash Gapps

Now you'll be fine

I think lf2 is better than kpe because more recent version, even if cm11 would also work on kpe with kpe's cfroot.
If you get status 7 error installation aborted try to mount all in cwm "mounts storage".

If it does not work try to redownload cm11 (it can be a corrupted file) and copy it on your ext sd card inserting the card directly in your pc (not connecting the phone via usb mode). Let me know how it goes.
