The i537 has a locked bootloader which means you cannot install a custom recovery or any other kernel. Your only option is to use SafeStrap along with 4.2.2 TouchWiz-based ROMs. Read more about SafeStrap here
and a list ROMs that will work with SafeStrap here
Because of the locked bootloader you will not be able to use CyanogenMod, any CM-based ROM, or any AOSP-based ROM. The only ROM I like using that is different than the stock ROM is the 4.2.2 GPe
. Do some reading before you try SafeStrap, otherwise you could brick your phone pretty easily.
