Default Unlocked Bootloader Flashed TWRP But It is Not Booting Into Recovery

Hi!

I have a Verizon Dev Ed running 4.4 with an unlocked bootloader. I want to root using TWRP 2.6.3.1 and SuperSU. I can flash TWRP using mfastboot and then reboot into the bootloader, but when I try to reboot into recovery, it just does a normal boot. I followed the instructions here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2534850

and used twrp-2.6.3.1-ghost-4.4.img.

I have a Windows 7 PC. I tried to use adb to boot into recovery but adb doesn't seem to recognize my device when it is in bootloader mode. I suspect it is a driver problem, but I downloaded the most recent drivers from Motorola and that doesn't seem to help.

I have seen other people with this problem, too but none of the solutions that worked for others worked for me.

Help!!!! I need root!

Thanks!!!!

If you press the power button after flashing TWRP, it will do a normal reboot and TWRP will not be installed. Try installing TWRP again and go to select recovery by pressing the "Volume Down" button to highlight "Recovery" and then press the "Volume Up" button to select recovery.

I also followed this youtube video that helped me: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sw675ipX-ds

Thank you! I was hitting volume down and then power to try to reboot into recovery!
