Unhappy [Q] Can't Access Recovery Mode

This blows. So my T-mobile Galaxy Note 3 is successfully rooted. Apparently TWRP was successfully installed via Odin, but my device refuses to enter Recovery Mode so no custom roms for me... When I attempt to boot to recovery it just starts on the screen which says:

"Recovery Booting....
RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING
Set Warranty Bit: Recovery"

And then it has the Sammy logo below. It stays on this screen a few seconds, turns black, goes back to that screen, and then depending on when I let go of the 3 finger salute... just boots up regularly after that.

In my research I saw a suggestion to download an app called QuickBoot and select the boot to recovery. When I did this it was just stuck in an infinite loop of the screen I described above until I pull the battery.

This is so damn frustrating. Can anyone point me in the right direction?

Reinstall TWRP and make sure you have the correct version for your Android version. If that fails, reinstall stock recovery.

Thanks for the reply. I did try re-installing several times to no avail. The version I'm using is "openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.0-hltetmo.img.tar" which I downloaded from: http://goo.im/devs/OpenRecovery/hltetmo . Now that you say that about the version I see the date is from January of the most recent one. Is it possible that TWRP cannot be installed on Kitkat? If so, I can't be the only one running into this problem.

I think you need to try 2.7.0.0
