Phone [Q] Unable to install custom rom and unable to boot into cwm mode

Well, I have a GT N7000, rooted, and with stock recovery (the one having something like <3e> in it) and using 4.1.
I wanted to install 4.4, so I went through the suggested procedure:
A. To get the CWM recovery:
1. Installed Rom Manager.
2. And lo! It showed that I was already having a CWM & TWRP in it!
3. Did the procedure to update the recovery, flashed it to 6.0.4.3(It still shows that touch is available, but canít install it as it asks for some in app purchase and all).
Now this is where the problem is. When I select Reboot into recovery, it simply switches off, then shows the green android guy with a gear icon in his back, and goes dark. No effect on any key press and yeah, I waited for something like 10 mins and did all kind of patience stuff. And then when I try to update the recovery manually by placing it in sd card and by selecting install update from external recovery, it showed me a tmp/sideload/package.zip (status 7) error. Kindly help me as I badly want to install kitkat and Iíve downloaded all the things for my phone only.
***The rom manager app says that my current rom is not set to receive OTA updates.
