How you got it cleared? Do u need to wait at that previous screen?
If you are flashing custom recovery, but you still have stock Samsung recovery, you are clearly doing something wrong.
When I flashed custom recovery, I had JellyBean Android installed and the recovery was made to work with Gingerbread, so it wouldn't boot recovery at all.
Since you are still getting the standard Samsung recovery, you haven't flashed the custom recovery correctly.
I suggest you retrace your steps and find some tutorial that could help you with your problem HERE
When I couldn't access recovery, I just flashed stock JellyBean again with Odin.
