If you're on a stock ROM, it's possible some file are flashing a stock recovery. Verify both of these are not present
/system/etc/install-recovery.sh
/system/recovery-from-boot.p

With root, you can delete those without a problem and reflash CWM and it shouldn't get overwritten.

ES File Explorer, Root Explorer or any other file explorer with root functionality. Just delete the /system/etc/install-recovery.sh file.

Look for options to mount /system as writable and make sure the app is running as root. After this it will work.

navigate to the system/etc folder using root explorer. press the button @ top right marked "mount r/w" delete the file then press "mount r/o" button, it is same button from before. back out of root explorer & reboot. screenshot of my system/etc folder, minus the recovery file since i'm on a skanky kang.
