Default XT1040 Recovery + Root

Hey guys, I've successfully unlocked the bootloader on my XT1040 running android 4.4.4

The problem is I cannot seem to get TWRP or CWM recovery to work.

I've flashed:


and every time I select recovery it says

"no command"

so I hold volume up for 10-15 seconds and then tap power and I get the menu no problem

then I try to flash SuperSU and I get an error "installation aborted"

I can't seem to get to TWRP or CWM recovery.

What am I doing wrong here?

I get the exact same thing on my Moto G LTE (xt1040)

There is a tutorial, if you google Moto g lte root. It will help you fastboot the TWRP (twrp- is what I used)
And from there DONT REBOOT from your fresh recovery install because it will be gone. Flash the SU Zip and install root.
After that, reboot and you'll have root access but if you try to enter recovery it will give you NO COMMAND.

That's all I could figure out for now.

Ill try and walk you through this how I did it:

....haha actually let me just like the XDA

If anyone else knows of a working recovery pls let me know :\

am i blind?

Thank you so much, I figured out how to get TWRP recovery to work. Only problem is, I wiped the whole damn phone, (I was trying to put the Moto G CyanogenMod 11)

Now I have to find the damn firmware to put it back on, Guess i was tired and stupid when i wiped the whole damn thing instead of the cache. Firmware i'm looking for if anyone has it is for Fido 4.4.4
