Default [Q] How to flash a new recovery ROM?

I recently went through the process of trying to update my recovery rom (yes, all rooted up already!).

The problem I was running into was while the tools (TWRP manager, ROM Manager, Goo Manager) all said the recovery was flashed successfully it wasn't.

During the course of my many attempts (which included some hangs, removal of the battery, etc) all of a sudden the updated recovery ROM appeared!

I have no idea what sequence of events resulted in the right behavior, either the tools are not really flashing properly, or there is some black magic (more likely) process which is restoring the recovery ROM.

What's the proper process to change/update your recovery ROM?

Sure yo are rooted but what firmware are you on, unless you're on mdk you can't flash recovery. So if your firmware says me7, mi1, or mj7 you're sol (ull find it under baseband in the about phone setting)

Then you might wanna try flashing cwm manually... Goo manager hasn't worked for me for a while... And ROM manager hasn't ever worked for me...

Thanks, I'll give that a shot. Does one need to go through that process in general on S4 these days?

Also, what's the recommendation TWRP or CM?

Just tried this process to upgrade to newest CWM recovery 6.0.4.7 (currently on 6.0.4.4). COuldn't update via rom manager (again says it flashed successfully but still running old version).

When I run the install-cwm.cmd script in that loki package, I get a permission denied when it tried to run the loki.sh script on my phone.

Any more ideas??
