Default Replacing CWM With TWRP

I am trying to replace CWM with TWRP but not having any luck. I installed GooManager and used the option to install open recovery script, but I still have CWM. So I downloaded the twrp image and used the terminal method

dd if=/mnt/extSdCard/twrp.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p34

This completed successfully, but after reboot then reboot into recovery I still have CWM.

I am currently running latest Cyanogenmod Rom.

Why do you want to replace it, anything that TWRP can do better than CWM? If you still want to switch, you should flash TWRP via Odin.

I like the TWRP interface over CWM. I guess I'll try the odin route.

Well I was able to flash a recovery zip file, but now if I attempt to boot into recovery it just stops at the Google Logo (Google edition phone) and I have to pull the battery, boot into download mode and select restart to get out of it.

Just flash the recovery with Odin. Uncheck auto-reboot in Odin. If it doesn't work the first time, flash it 2 times in a row.
Current:

Samsung Galaxy S 4 I9505 | WanamLite v2.6

Samsung Galaxy S II I9100 : AOKP 4.2.1
HTC Touch Pro2 | ROM: Valkyrie 6.5.23115TR2.5

HTC Desire : Oxygen v2.1.3

I was having a problem with Odin crashing when I attempted to flash. I finally got it working, apparently I had the wrong img file and dd statement. So now everything is working great.

Making Nandroid Backup first thing.
