To install your TWRP custom recovery, just repeat the same process but use the TWRP tar. To get to your new recovery, Power off, hold the power button and the up volume. Let go of the buttons when you see the small blue text in the upper left of your screen. TWRP recovery will look like this.
If it still goes to the stock recovery instead of TWRP. Try installing TWRP again with Odin but this time uncheck auto-reboot. When you see the Green Pass and you’re sure Odin is done, unplug the USB cable and pull out your battery. Put the battery back in and reboot. You should be able to get to TWRP now.
After you are rooted, go back to TWRP and select backup. Make a nandroid backup of your rooted stock rom. If you ever have a problem after installing a custom rom, or just don’t like it, you can restore this backup, or a more recent one you may have made. Do not forget to do this! A nandroid backup may save your life someday and it makes baby kittens smile.
Be warned! Backups on this phone can be very large. Mine was 3.2 gig. Make sure you select your external sd card for the backup location.
