Default Installing TWRP over CWM

This may be a noob question but I've been stuck in Steve Jobs' walled garden for a couple years.
I've got the unofficial CWM recovery right now but I see they released a TWRP recovery now. Can I just use goomanager to install it or do I need to somehow remove CWM first?

Just install it. CWM will be replaced by TWRP.

I haven't heard anyone confirm goomanager working although I don't see why it wouldn't. People have confirmed flashify working. Like robocuff said though, flash right over cwm

I found an article saying use goomanager is all. Will give it a shot, now I can't find the article again.

You can also just get ADB and the prereq's setup on your computer and ADB push TWRP to your device. It's pretty easy. Pushing itself takes about 1 minute (including the time it takes to reboot to the bootloader, push the TWRP image, and reboot afterwards). Getting the ADB files and HTC drivers takes only a little longer (depending on your download speeds).
