Default [Q] VRUEMK2 Rooted, cant install recovery?

Is my bootloader locked? I tried installing ClockWork and TWRP Through Rom Manger and GooManager, both say they are successful but when I restart into recovery via an app or manually it goes into ODIN Mode or Stock Recovery? What am I missing here? Any help gratefully appreciated !

Only mdk can install a custom recovery. Not to be rude, but a lil reading would of went a long way. All you can do is root and k stall safestrap

No, you can't install a custom recovery. The bootloader is locked.

I suggest you read the following

My Android devices:
vzw Samsung Galaxy S4 stock NC5 rooted
Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, also stock but rooted.

VZ Droid Incredible 2 rooted but otherwise stock.
Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1

Yes, and it wasn't really make clear what works with MK2, but now after reading more I see I need SS. I Have 3.70 Installed. Now I am having trouble finding any KitKat Roms that work with SafeStrap and MK2? Is there a list somewhere?

Thx, I actually found that not long after my post. Now it seems there are no 4.4 roms compatible with ss 3.70 and mk2? Hyperdrive seems nice but it's Jellybean.
