Hello.
Just got this phone, i trade it for a s3.First thing im trying to do is install custom recovery..but something is wrong. i flashed the phone like 15 times with all of the recoveries, twrp, cwm, philz... and the phone always boots into the official recovery. Odin says its ok.PASS, Sucsseded 1, failed 0..
And than when i try to boot into the recovery the stock recovery shows up??
It happened on the 4.1.2, and i updated it to 4.3, official via ota, and it is the same with 4.3 too.
Can anyone help me?
Thanks.

You're supposed to root the phone first, then flash custom recovery.

Phils recovery has a root and custom recovery in one that can be flashed with odin. Because you have done the 4.3 ota you will probably have to deal with knox now. Dr ketans guides are really helpful, you need to know what bootloader you have now.

I did it!
The solution is TO READ! What i didnt do completly
The problem was with the recovery restore files that were present. I manged to rename those files, root it and install twrp with the SkipSoft toolkit.
