Tutorial [Q] Stock recovery missing!!!

I have an AT&T Samsung Galaxy S4 SGH-I337 rooted. I tried to flash a custom recovery with Rom Manager, Rom installer, Safestrap and Odin in that order. All my attempts failed because the boot loader is locked and now the stock recovery its gone. My question is: If I flash a stock ROM like out of the box (NB1 OTA) in ODIN that return my phone back to original settings and with the stock recovery too? Thanks in advance!!!

Yes, your only Odin right now is to flash the full Odin tar file

No you can't go backwards with bootloaders. I assume since you weren't able to do custom recovery you're on a newer firmware nc1? If so you can root with towel root then only use safestrap as a means for recovery. But you'll only be able to install touchwiz based roms.
