[Q] Can't install TWRP Recovery on my phone..
I have the Galaxy Note SGH-I717R (Rogers version), with the stock android 4.0.4 installed. I want to install a custom ROM but I cannot get TWRP Recovery to work on this phone. I have followed all the guides but it will not work, even though it appears to install correctly. I put my phone into download mode, start odin in admin mode, attach my phone, it is recognized by odin, then I choose PDA and select the TWRP Recovery tar file (which is the correct one for my device). After I click Start on Odin it goes through these messages as it installs and reboots my device:
<ID:0/003> NAND Write Start!!
<ID:0/003> RQT_CLOSE !!
<ID:0/003> RES OK !!
<ID:0/003> Remain Port .... 0
<OSM> All threads completed. (succeed 1 / failed 0)
and the box in the upper left corner turns green and says "Pass!".
After this, I have my phone usb disconnected and I reboot into recovery mode.. Only when it starts in recovery, it is the same stock recovery mode that comes with stock android! With this, I cannot flash the custom ROM because it gives the error that verification failed.
I have tried installing TWRP through goo manager as well, but when I choose the openrecoveryscript option, it says that nothing was found for my device.
What am I missing here? How can I install this custom recovery to allow me to flash a custom ROM?
I also tried this with 2 different versions of TWRP - 184.108.40.206-quincyatt.img and the latest 220.127.116.11-quincyatt.img
