did you try to trouble shoot from the original thread i linked...that would be your best option,also check the size of your recovery and make sure it is above 6mb,if it is not it will not install anyway,it will just create the recovery file but will store it on your p.c. instead...even trying to flash it with an app like mobile uncle or flashify it will not work and you usually lose your original recovery file trying it so do not under any circumstances attempt to flash it if your recovery is smaller than 6mb
