Default [Q] Questions about SafeStrap/Did I screw things up?

Hey, I recently rooted my 4.4.3 ATT Galaxy S4 using towelroot and got a little too excited/didn't do enough reading and tried to install CWM via rom manager like an idiot. Now whenever I boot my phone into recovery it says "No Command" and then "Error" when I reboot. Before I do anything further and potentially brick my phone, I want to ask a few questions.

1. Is it still possible for me to install SafeStrap, and is this a thing that I should even try to do at this point.
2. Did I screw up my phone's recovery/bootloader?
a. Is this repairable, and if not, is there anything I can do to avoid further damage?
3. Is there anything I can do to avoid further damage?

Thanks for your help!

The phone is completely repairable. The stock recovery on the phone is useless for us.
Safestrap is the only working recovery for our phone. It is different from other recoveries as it does not replace the stock one.

You can flash the full NB1 ROM in Odin if you really want to fix this. You really don't need to as the phone will work even without the stick recovery available.
