Note for the new ones here:

XT1045 is code name "peregrine" the other Moto G's, with exception of the UK, and probably other 4G LTE..All other models are code name "falcon"..the two are NOT compatible..

Moto X code name is "ghost"
Droid Maxx code name is "obake"

The above mentioned are NOT interchangeable.. (UNLESS) you are a Dev and experienced in Porting..

So far as I can tell, no. The command being used with that image is "fastboot boot", not "fastboot flash". The former is (so far as I can tell) a "download this image and use it to boot once" command; it (if I'm reading correctly) wouldn't actually overwrite the recovery on your phone. The latter, OTOH, would surely overwrite your recovery, and would probably be ill-advised here (judging by some other posts, the OP gave it a try and subsequently recovery on the OP's phone stopped working).

So unless that recovery image is so horribly broken that even just booting with it will release the magic smoke (unlikely, as I doubt TeamWin would release it in that state ), I suspect it'd be fine. Probably. Just make sure you get the command right!

DISCLAIMER: I'm not actually fully familiar with fastboot myself, but I've worked with similar utilities on similar devices before (in particular, for my old Nokia N900). Have seen similar distinctions between "use this image this one time only" and "flash this image to the device and use it", though, so I'm feeling good about what amounts to an educated guess here.

Hey guys so I did this fully, seemed to work, but when I go back and launch bootloader and try to run recovery it says "boot failed"

Initially I installed SuperSU through TWRP like stated and functions, but I feel like I dont actually have a recovery installed..?

Thanks. I notice that once I did the process. "fastboot boot" only boot the device, it don't flash anything. In my case I only want the root, this works perfectly for me.
