In the steps he doesn't flash TWRP. He boots to it.

fastboot boot recovery.img

as opposed to

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

There is also an app called BootUnlocker, which resets the taper flag from within android (With root) so you can just use that. I use that and mine is constantly showing as not tampered

You're absolutely right, I took it for granted it was necessary to flash it before using it. My phone is now 100% recovered, thank you so much!
