Install the all in one root and recovery tool for mdk...since you are already rooted you can skip that step...select the prep for recovery option...it will clean up and get rid of things that interfere with custom recovery and then select install either oudhs or twrp...these will allow you to flash updated cwm/twrp versions which I recommend to ensure proper flashing of newer roms...once one of these is installed you can always use rom manager or goo manager or the others to update...but I believe the prep for recovery step is crucial in having a functional custom recovery

I agree. Where can I find the all in one root and recovery tool for MDK?

Why dont you try to look for custom recovery thats suits your device manually and flash it using recovery tool app. You can get it in playstore

This is a PC utility not an app so you will need PC if you didn't already know that

Our devices are quirky... Some will do just fine just randomly flashing recovery...others just won't behave without going through the prep for recovery step...I know I flashed stock with Odin once before rooted again and had the same problems getting custom recovery setup...used the same steps to fix it then too...I would recommend these for anyone having issues with recovery install

It's cool...I didn't actually catch any rudeness from that
