Default Swapping recoveries...

So when I unlocked my phone the other day I went to flash twrp but the website was having issues and wouldn't let me download the file. Thus i was forced to install cwm. I can't stand cwm since it bricked my m7. My question is, how do I go about changing to twrp? What files do I need?

CWM bricked your m7.... K

What you need is the recovery itself, which can be found in the original development section. Then just install the same way you did with cwm, or use flashify.. Make sure you hit recovery instead of boot.. It'll cause problems.

My philosophy is that if your "contribution" to the community has a giant DONATE button in the center of the page? It isn't worth the download.

Ok I should rephrase that. I had cwm when it bricked. I was making a nandroid backup and it froze in the middle of the process. Sat there hanging on the same screen for 3 hours So I was forced to hard shut off the phone. When I rebooted, it wouldn't mount to anything and is now a beautiful brushed aluminum brick. M7 aside, I can just flash twrp right over cwm? I don't have to revert to a stock recovery first?

Correct, you can just flash one recovery over another
