I successfully rooted my Verizon Galaxy S4. My root checker verifies this. However when I go to install CWM Recovery and I give it permission and everything and select boot into recovery it boots the phone into download mode. The same happens with TWRP recovery in GooManager. I am just stuck and not sure how to proceed. I have also tried flashing CWM Recovery via ODIN but that fails as well.

i think verizon locked the bootloader on their s4, i you might have to use the "Scary" Safestrap. but if a CWM image has been built already then there has to be a way to flash it, try snooping around zedomax's method http://galaxys4root.com/galaxy-s4-ro...oot-galaxy-s4/

You should do more research before you started. What your doing is a sure way for a brick. Only if your on mdk can you proceed as your doing. If your not you need to install safestrap.
