You can not flash a recovery with the retail variant because the bootloader isn't unlocked. Dev mode is not the same as developer edition, those have a unlocked bootloader and the retail dose not. You will need to go back to stock, re-root and start from scratch. Go here
and follow the instructions to get your phone back to normal if you messed the stock recovery up and can not boot normally. These are for the retail Verizon S5 only.
