Default How to get Custom Recovery on rooted G2? [Noob]

So I recently rooted my G2 to remove the bloatware apps and maybe install CM 11. I downloaded ROM Manager and I tried to install the CWM recovery through there but it seems like it's not doing anything. Every time I press "Reboot into Recovery", it restarts into the stock recovery (I'm assuming). And this recovery doesn't have an option to install from .zip, which means I can't install the CWM recovery. It only has install from SD card, which doesn't have anything in it, install from cache and install from adb. I have CM 11 running on my nexus 4 ( I used the installer) and that has a CWM recovery so I know what it looks like.

Am I doing something wrong or missing a step? Is there another way to do it?

Thanks

what firmware does your phone currently have on it? That will determine what method you will need to use to get a recovery.

That was exactly what I needed. The issue with stock KitKat is the bootloader is locked and the way we got around it with JB has been patched. There are some amazing people though that found a way to downgrade the bootloader and kernel to get around this. You can find the very simple and easy to use app over here. I recently used it myself and it literally takes about 30 seconds to do and you will have TWRP 2.7 when its all done
