But right after you flash the custom recovery you have to boot into the recovery before you let the device boot up or the recovery won't work.
How this helps

Thank you again for responding.
I am fairly familiar with using CMD and commands but I think I am missing a step. Dont I need to have the window open that contains certain files? I am running windows 8.
Right after I flash the fastboot image I get several options when I do the "hold power and down volume" and none of them mention twrp recovery. It just says "recovery". Is that normal?
