Well I can get the recovery to show but when I select anything the screen just flashes. Does absolutely nothing and when I reboot the recovery goes back to stock -_-

Yes I am. I have tried different version of Odin also. Still nothing.

What Recovery are you using? Stock or CWM

Right now it's stock. I am trying to put CWM. CWM gets on there, none of the commands for it work and it disappears after phone reboot. So I can't install SU zip nor keep the recovery.

Are you doing a normal reboot after Odin then trying to go to recovery?

If so, uncheck reboot in Odin. When you get done flashing, pull the battery, reboot straight to recovery and flash the zip. Only thing I can think of if you tried run as admin, multiple downloads, computers, cables and so forth.

I've tried that. The recovery just flashes when I try to select anything. It won't do anything at all. I have tried other CWM downloads and all do the same thing. I am on the SPH-L520 if that helps with anything.

We're all on the 520 here. Don't know why it's not working well. Seems like the variables have all been covered. The only thing I can think of is to ODIN stock NA7 and try from scratch.

I updated my phone earler this morning, to the latest official version, 4.4.2 KitKat VPUBNE3, used the root mentioned above, so far everything works fine.
