Method 3

1. Install Mobile Odin.apk
2. Flash the CWM 5.0.2.6. FIXED recovery
3. (Optional) Restore your old Backup


Method 4

1. Flash CWM 5.0.2.6. FIXED via CWM 6.0.4.7 or TWRP 2.7.0.0 or CWM 6.0.4.8 Advanced Edition / PhilZ Touch Recovery 6.40.1 (you can flash directly another custom rom)
2. Use the Terminal app (CM11) [optional download and install Android Terminal Emulator (from Play Store)]
3. Open it and type the following code (running Android 4.4.x)
Code:
su
flash_image recoveryonly /storage/sdcard0/recovery.img
4. (Optional) Restore your old Backup
