For further references and download, here's a link to TWRP.

The only thing I'm not getting is where I have to put the file in my computer.
I installed adb with that 15 sec installer.
Can you help a noob out? XD

Boot into the bootloader and then from a command window use

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img where recovery.img is the name of your twrp recovery image

So,

Boot in fastboot;
Connect to PC;
Do the command line thing. From what folder of the PC do I do this?

Put the recovery image in the same folder as fastboot.exe. Then open a command window in that folder

I made it!
Thanks for your help.
Turns out I didn't need it to put it in that folder since I installed adb and fastboot with the 15 sec. program and it added it to my PATH.
Thanks again for your help guys.

He doesn't need to do that. Only people who didn't install fastboot correctly need to do that. He used the installer so the variables are present. He doesn't need to cd to the directory fastboot is in OR put anything he wants to flash in that directory.

OP please click the link in my signature and read from there my adb and fastboot info thread

Right.
The only thing I did was: in the folder where I had the .img I shift+right click and clicked open command line here, from here I just imputed the text on the cmd.
Did I needed to do that or is it not needed for me?
