Well what build is your phone?? If it wasn't MDK then that's why that's happening to you. You cannot install a custom recovery.

You're probably going to need to use Odin to get your phone back to stock.
Do you have any idea what build your on?

You won't be totally screwed. Just have to Odin MK2 back on your phone. Try the no wipe version first.

We all learned by doing things similar to this... Just get more familiar with how to research here on XDA first and you'll be alright.

the key is to research before you throw your $600 into the fire...

Yeah, I was a bit careless with trying to follow the first set of instructions I saw on google...Got it fixed now though, and won't be dumb about it anymore. Thanks for the help guys.
