Default help me get my custom recovery back. lost it after OTA update

i had a custom recovery (philz) and just updated to 4.4.4 (from 4.4.3 with root) using the OTA update (so dumb).

the phone is fine (4.4.4 at the moment) but when i want to get into the custom recovery, it shows me an android with a red exclamation mark. no recovery access.

i already tried to flash the custom recovery with fastboot but it says unknown partition using this guide:

can anyone help me?

if you have root, use the flashify app to reflash philz recovery. or you can always use fastboot to flash a recovery, without having root as well. the rest you have to do on your own, nobody can help you. did you use toolkits? thats the only reason i can think of why you dont know how to flash a recovery. do yourself a favor, dont use root toolkits, youll never learn a thing and will end up messing up your phone doing something that should be simple.
