    I want to use a CWM recovery on my At&t Samsung Galaxy S4 i337 running android 4.4.4 Kitkat.
    I have the recovery I just can't figure out how to get CWM on my device. Is it possible?

    If the S4 is the same as the other Samsung AT&T phones, the bootloader is locked, so the best you can do is see if there's a SafeStrap for it (which would give you a TWRP-like recovery). You'd probably have to do the same thing as the Note 3 - revert to 4.4.2, root it, install SafeStrap, install 4.4.4, then keep a 4.4.2 kernel in 4.4.4 and a 4.4.4 kernel in SafeStrap to switch between them. (It's a bit of a pain, which is why I'm normally just on 4.4.2.)

    Look in AT&T Samsung Galaxy S 4 Android Development - XDA Forums for threads on SafeStrap and getting around rooting 4.4.4.
