Question [Q] Cannot boot into recovery

Sorry, not a newb. Searched, but apparently not enough.
Knox counter is tripped, but as long as it doesn't affect anything besides warranty, I don't really care.

Problem is, even though I'm rooted, and Odin (3.0.9) tells me that recovery flash was successful, I still cannot boot into recovery (trying for TWRP). I have TWRP on my Sensation, but this phablet is a no-go.
I'm still getting the
"RECOVERY BOOTING...
RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING
Set Warranty Bit: recovery"

loop.

Easily to get out of, by getting the phone into the download mode, but the issue still remains. No matter what I try, I get the "Done" message via Odin, Rashr, etc. Yet, every time I try to reboot into recovery (to flash a custom ROM), I find myself stuck back in the recovery loop.

Help, please!

What recovery are you using and what Rom ....newest twrp only work with 4.4.2 they will not work ... When you Flash twrp don't let it reboot pull battery and vol up home and power boot into recovery and you Will good just make sure your using the right recovery for bootloader

Ah! Stupid me.
Grabbed the LATEST recovery from #RASHR, and all is good. TWRP ftw!
