Have you unzipped the file? Don't unzip it just flash the .tar file in Odin as @Joku1981 stated

Disable the auto reboot setting in Odin.. Then, once the recovery is flashed and the screen says it completed correctly, pull your battery to turn the phone off, then replace battery, and reboot into recovery. Oh, and make sure you don't unzip the tat archive, just flash it as it comes.......

This was what I had to do when I was installing custom recovery on my s4......i hope it helps
