Try flashing the official stock firmware, then try to flash CWM, or even better Philz Recovery. Since CWM is not sticking, battery pillout and all doesnt help much!

Wrong.
On every flash of any custom recovery on stock ROM, we need to go to the recovery on the first boot otherwise stock recovery or a file in /etc will overwrite it.
The solution is indeed going to recovery on first boot after the Odin flash and flashing Fix-Recovery.zip file.
No offence
