Why did you post this three times?!?
Anyway - all this stuff is covered already - e.g:
http://www.modaco.co...date-root-more/ but skip the bit about bootloader unlock as it's irrelevant if you are on GB and the GB bootloader as that bootloader is unlocked anyway. (And if you were on ICS then you would want to do an official bootloader unlock rather than the hack in this tutorial which dates from when there was no official unlock option).
Edit: actually if all you need is to get CWM installed then see here:
and just skip to steps 14 to 21. Once that is done you should be able to boot into CWM by powering off the phone and then pressing and holding volume up first and then power until the phone boots into CWM. If that doesn't work power off, remove the battery for about 10 seconds, replace it and try again.
Once you have CWM installed from that tutorial you can install a later version (or TWRP) if you want. See the CWM and TWRP threads in the development forum.
Read up on everything thoroughly and understand things before trying anything. If you know what you are doing then it is unlikely that you will brick your device. But if you don't understand what you're doing and do it anyway then you could brick it. If that happens don't blame anybody else.

That is not for ICS CWM?

The tutorial is about installing ICS/JB but CWM is just a recovery so you can use it with any version.
So if you follow the steps in that tutorial for installing CWM only - not the other stuff if you have already rooted and are not on ICS so don't need the bootloader unlock - then you will get an older version of CWM which you can use as is or use it to install a later version of CWM or TWRP.

Try Quick Boot from the Play Store and see if you can boot into recovery.
If you can't then you didn't install CWM properly.
Go back and review all the steps that you carried out so far.
Did ClockworkG300.exe from the "explained like you're 5" tutorial run without errors?
If necessary start from scratch.
