I am in this situation right now as well after flashing CWM recovery via ODIN. Hopefully someone has an answer. Did you find anything?

Try to overwrite your recovery with Philz Touch. It's working perfect for G900 variants so far:

I was finally able to get the phone into download mode by pulling the battery so I just pushed TWRP to it to fix the CWM issues. I'll check out Philz Touch as well though. Thanks.

Great!

IMO, Philz Touch is more beatiful and more functional than TWRP

Hi guys - I had this same issue today. I'd also installed CWM and tried to go into recovery mode via ROM Manager when it happened.

Looked around and after finding this thread I managed to flash with Philz Touch and got it to boot. Managed to get it into recovery mode and run this new Philz Touch version of CWM and do a backup. However just before it got into CWM it still came up with:

1. RECOVERY BOOTING (in blue),
2. RECOVERY IS NOT SEANDROID ENFORCING (red)
3. Set Warranty Bit: recovery (yellow)

Then loaded into CWM whereas before flashing Philz it was just looping. Is there a way I can stop it from coming up with this?

I'm using TWRP and the same thing comes up. It only comes up for a few seconds so I just don't worry about it. With CWM recovery, it was locked on that screen.

You should always clear the system cache afterwards from recovery mode.
This problem only seems to occur with CWM. I've never seen or even heard of it being an issue with TWRP, which I much prefer.

If the problem persists after clearing the system cache, it may reflect that CWM is corrupting the partition. Writing another recovery overtop would appear to fix that problem but you still wouldn't have a stable system under all conditions. Any partition issues would be properly repaired by writing the appropriate PIT file in conjunction with firmware.
