I Keep trying to install custom recovery, but none of the methods I found work. these arch told me to use goo manager, but that didn't work. My friend said to use Clockwork or Cyanogens but clockwork did not work, and I can't find cyanogen. please tell me how you installed your custom recovery, because I'm afraid to do anything else after rooting

Now my friend is saying because neither of those work, rooting was a waste (which I don't believe), but what do you guys think?

Installing TWRP can take a few tries. Took me about a half an hour to get my tablet to take to the custom recovery. Be sure to flash 2.6.3 as 2.7 doesn't yet work. Flash via the latest Odin as well.

This generally works for me..
Make sure you reboot your device and go directly into your custom recovery (volume up + home+ power)
Before your device starts

You only flash recoveries through Odin or via ADB. Any other way will have a very high risk of screwing something up. Also as long as you can get into download mode you can get the stock image from sammobile and flash via Odin.
