I had rooted Nexus 5 with franco.kernel. Reverted back to stock kernel and flashed the OTA zip. Everything went perfectly and updated to 4.4.3, but unfortunately lost recovery and root access.

I tried to regain root by running CF auto root kit. No luck whatsoever. I can't flash TWRP, because everytime I type fastboot flash recovery recovery.img - it says it can't open recovery.img. The recovery.img is in the platform-tools folder, I am certain I did nothing wrong.


Can anyone give me a hand with this?

EDIT- You may delete this thread. Seems like the problem was that SuperSU didn't get installed but after downloading it from play store everything shows up as rooted now. Thanks.
