Before you flash the recovery, untick the Auto Reboot option in ODIN. Then flash the recovery. After flashing in done, reboot your device directly to recovery mode from download mode bu pressing Vol up + Power + Home button together. Now you will see the TWRP recovery is booted in your device. Now you can reboot normally and your TWRP will be installed.

Okay, I add another answer because the protocol I am attaching differs from what I posted above. This worked for me, I cannot tell if this will work for you; please don't point your finger on me ;) This is meant for all who have a CM CM12.1 Nightly build 2016-01-19 or later installed - including Cyanogenmod's recovery which IS NOT ABLE to install Zip Files. ...

Per this page, WARNING: Do not boot into Samsung's ROM without first applying our Root .zip. Samsung's OTA updates install /system/etc/install-recovery.sh and /system/recovery-from-boot.p, which cause Samsung's ROM to replace the recovery image you had just flashed with the stock recovery. Our Root .zip removes these files, thus preserving your custom ...

The obvious solution to having no operating system is to add one. That's why what you can do, is to re-flash the custom ROM you are having, or a different one (maybe even a stock ROM). You can go on their page, and find your build there. Once you download the ZIP, you put it on your SD, through the computer, and flash the ZIP from there, or you can use ADB ...

First off I'm assuming that the device is already flashing unlocked since you said you tried to flash the update from recovery. You shouldn't need a backup but make one anyways because recovery might be flashed over. Read everything first before you get started. Download current image (the one you have now, you can try 29X or latest 30D), it's best to ...

One way that might be possible is to connect your phone to the computer using usb. I'm not sure in kitkat but you can then safely transfer your most needed files to the computer. You may need to have usb debugging options enabled however. Also, if you have a removable case then do it and remove the sim card (and the battery if you can). I had a similar ...
