Default [Q] How to replace CWM with TWRP

For the first time I have successfully rooted my phone (SGH-i717D) using Odin and CWM using Max's instructions at rootgalaxynote.com, but I have not flashed the rom yet and still have the stock Telus JB. The trouble is that both devs of the roms I want to try recommend using TWRP 2.5 but I have CWM installed. I tried simply installing GooManager with CWM still present but if I open it I get the CWM screen. How do I remove CWM and install TWRP if I already have the stock rom installed?

Thanks.

You can either flash the twrp zip from cwm recovery, or use odin and install it. It should remove cwm and leave twrp.

Choose your method and download accordingly
