When i tested the root method I installed stock rom with odin, and after i flashed cwm, same with odin.. Rebooted in recovery, rooted and booted to android.. And after ten mins when i went back to recovery, cwm was still there.. No prompt, no silent stock recovery flashing, nothing. And as @Phil3759 said, 'yes, disable stock recovery' should do the trick..

I too had the same issue with flashing CWM and after boot up in android then shut down back into recovery it had reverted back to stock recovery. Root was ok, that sticks.
Tried suggested flashing 18.104.22.168 via Odin then flash 22.214.171.124 zip but it still restored to stock recovery after booting Android. Flash counter now = 7 all for nothing
I even tried the dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/mmcblk0p6 method but that would only give me temp CWM which again restored back to stock recovery after reboot to Android.
I only manage to get it to stop overwritng CWM 126.96.36.199 by deleting this /system/reboot-from-recovery.p
then flashed CWM 188.8.131.52 now the system does not keep writing stock recovery over CWM 184.108.40.206
I think It may be I did not flash a new ROM but just wanted rooted stock + CWM that some of us are getting CWM restored back to stock recovery. The phone is the wife's so had to restrain from too much messing with it, unlike my HTC which is well FOOBAR'ed
