2 ways:

- Download a TWRP flashable .zip. While in recovery, wipe cache. Then flash .zip. Then go to "advanced options" in CWM and choose "reboot recovery"

- Download a TWRP recovery.img, and flash it through fastboot. Make sure you have fastboot and adb drivers. Connect phone to pc in fastboot mode. Open a CMD window from where you have your adb and fastboot files, as well as the recovery.img file. In the cmd window type "fastboot flash recovery _______.img" Where the blank spot is, is where you would put the name of your recovery .img file.
Phones: Motorola Atrix 4G ---> Samsung Galaxy Nexus (temporarily) ---> LG Optimus 3d ---> Samsung Galaxy SII LTE Skyrocket ---> LG Optimus G ---> Sony Xperia ZL ---> Motorola Moto G
My Roms/Ports: CarbonRom/CarbonClash (port):
Thanks: XDA and all its members. Without you I'd still be an uneducated bumpkin complaining about my shi**y phone.

Keep in mind that CWM nandroid backups and TWRP backups aren't interchangeable.
My phones: Galaxy Note II SGH-T889V (with LTE enabled / ext4 SD card support on TouchWiz ROMs), Motorola XT-1045 Moto G LTE (TWRP)
Previous phones: Nexus S GT-I9020A, Galaxy Gio GT-S5660M (Arpeggiomod ROM / Discussion, stock rooted ROM), Motorola XT-1032 Moto G.
Phones for which I play "tech support" for family and friends: Galaxy Nexus GT-I9250, Galaxy Q SGH-T589R, Galaxy 551 GT-I5510M, LG C-800G Eclypse, Motorola XT-1032 Moto G

Thumbs up OK

Simply download the twrp and flash it using the instructions on the developer's thread.
It will replace automatically.
