    I don't believe there is an Odin version of CWM so you'll have to first flash twrp using Odin and then flash the CWM flashable zip from within twrp. This will get you on CWM Recovery.

    CWM does have an issue sometimes restoring data from a backup so be aware of that.

    I like twrp much better anyway. Very easy to use.

    I recommend TWRP for now, but I hope to port my CWM-Green recovery eventually (has automated backups/installations, one click and leave your phone alone for 5 minutes and it's backed up and updated), just not enough hours in the day. ;)
