This is the most recent list of recoveries for the SCH-i535 Verizon galaxy S3. I will be keeping this up to date to make it easier to find the most recent recoveries for our device.
CWM and TWRP are .img files and are easiest to install from EZ Recovery or Flashify apps from the play store. EZ-Recovery Flashify
Philz is installed by either using odin to flash the .tar.md5 file or by flashing the zip in recovery.
Safestrap is installed through an application.
I don't hold any responsibility of what happens to your phone due to flashing these.

Updating the Update-Binary
If you receive a status 7 error when flashing a zip in recovery, pull the update binary from the latest CM nightly. This should be resolved in Philz Recovery as it automatically works around it, but may throw errors in the latest CWM recovery.
Here's how to replace the file:
Unzip the folder
Navigate to META-INF/com/google/android
Replace the older update-binary with the newer one
This will allow files to flash on the newer recoveries until all developers update the binary on their own zips, or a fix is in place.
I want to thank @andybones for giving me this idea, and giving me permission to make an updated thread.
I also want to thank all the developers of these great recoveries.
I don't always have time to check and see when these are updated, so if someone could reply to this thread or PM me when there's an update that would be great. I'll provide a link for it and update the thread.
