    If you are properly rooted, then go to play store and down load an app call 'freegee'. It's the easiest method I know of to install the recovery, both cwm and twrp. BTW, how did you root your phone?

    That is because you don't have the recovery, side load is a part of the recovery. To install the recovery, you need to root your phone first. If you want to root your phone, this is the easiest method. Click on below link to download rootmaster. Since the program is written in Chinese, you should watch rootmaster video first, just do a search on youtube. Because att locked boot.img file for security on the newer phones, rooting methods from earlier may not work. Once you're rooted, get freegee from the play store and install the recovery, then you can down load the kk zip file and flash it to your phone.


    Just click on the down load link that begins with "vroot". Let me know if you have problems.
