So, I'm having this strange issue where I can't boot into Recovery Mode.

I've been a flashaholic for a little over a year now, but I've never had this problem.

I wanted to get off of Philz because it wasn't wiping my phone correctly while flashing new roms, so I decided to go back to good 'ol TWRP.

I downloaded Goomamager and tried to install, no luck.
So I hopped on my laptop to flash via ODIN, still a no go.
Only after that, it doesn't boot into Recovery at all.

I tried to use ROM Manager to install CWM, because at this point I'm willing to use anything, still a no go.

Anyone got any ideas?
I can get into Download Mode, but no Recovery is sticking.

I try to boot into Recovery, but the device just reboots itself.

Any help is appreciated, thanks.

Depends on the android version. Also go back to stock with Odin and start all over. Make sure you using right recovery ? As far as philz cwm not wiping properly. Not to sure about that one. A wipe is a generic thing. What do you mean not wiping the right way?

Alright, I was gonna do that tomorrow on my day off, since the device seems to function properly mostly.

With Philz, I mean that I would Factory Reset, Wipe Data and "Wipe for new ROM", but when I would flash the new ROM, it would still have everything I had before on the device's SD memory, (which to me, is not a clean flash).

I am on Temasek's 4.4 CM11 v50.
I've been using this ROM for a long time and I've never had this problem in the past.

OK I am not familiar with asop so I don't know what to say. But best bet is Odin back then flash twrp as you would like
