What happens when you just type fastboot?

This has been said already but you can just "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img", flash your superuser zip then "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img". You are using the correct image name in the command, correct?

Yes, this was said in the thread I started but then I saw someone suggest what I'd been wanting to do. To answer the questions, if I just type fastboot it gives me the help output like it should, fastboot devices shows my device, fastboot reboot works, fastboot reboot-bootloader works, etc. Essentially, I believe that either there is a command string that I could hand to -c or this just won't work on MotoX's like it does all the Nexus devices that I've played with.

Fortunately I did hit Moto up and they gave me permission to download the 4.4 image so I do have the stock recovery.
