Default [Q] I messed up

I was try to take my phone to as close to stock as possible but didn't have a stock recovery. I was trying to get s-off through sunshine but when i tried to go back to stock i downloaded an ing file from here and installed it using flashify and i am assuming it was the wrong one. Now all i get is the red triangle on start up. How do I flash a recovery using a mac or could some one direct me to a video?

Get fastboot and adb. Download newest twrp img file. Boot to bootloader and click fastboot. Load terminal on Mac and navigate to directory with fastboot and img.
Fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
Pm me if you need more help.

Sounds like you have stock recovery... Is that not what you wanted?

Seems like you flashed boot and not recovery. You will need to flash another rom
