Set Warranty Bit: recovery

After about 5 seconds, it just boots normally back into kitkat. any other ideas I can possibly try?

If you downloaded the IMG file you can't Odin that. You need to fastboot IMG files.

Assuming you have adb/fastboot already on your computer, rename the file to "recovery.img" and place the IMG file in your fastboot directory, plug your phone into your computer, open up a terminal window/command prompt and type: don't type the , just hit enter.

adb devices

[you should see your phone, if you do type:]

adb reboot-bootloader

[After it reboots into the bootloader, type:]

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

[It will tell you if it's successful, if it is, use your volume up and down buttons to find recovery and press power to reboot into recomethod.]

You may also try downloading the twrp app from the play store and having it flash the IMG file for you. I hear it works well, I've not used that method.

When trying the ADB/Fastboot method, I ended up with adb telling me "waiting for device" after going into download mode through ADB, and nothing. Using the TWRP app from the playstore however, I have successfully installed TWRP now. Thanks a lot Mega!

Does it boot at all or just sit at that screen?
