I have a developer edition VZW moto x, bootloader is unlocked, i have the white warning screen upon boot telling me its unlocked, it has not yet been rooted, stock 4.4 kitkat and currently trying to install custom recovery, ive tried both twrp and the unofficial cwm recovery, i can get into bootloader through the cmd window, i get a response with adb devices showing its communicating, ive renamed the recovery files with a ".img" and no matter what i do i get the message "bootloader variable not supported" can someone please help me figure out what im doing wrong.
well i installed the minimal ADB and fastboot installer with the adb and fastboot files in the zip, i extracted and installed, plug phone in USB debugging active, i type in command adb devices, get confirmation of device then type adb reboot bootloader, phone boots into bootloader, once in bootloader i type, fastboot flash recovery twrp-188.8.131.52-ghost-4.4.img after which i get the error message, also when the file is saved, the .img is not there, ive done it as is and adding the .img to the end with the same result
alright, i got twrp installed, use mfastboot and had to add the .img to the end of the file, so i now have twrp installed, backups made and saved to my computer for the just in case, i hace access to twrp through rom manager, i am wondering if i can flash cwm using rom manager, the reason i ask is ive always used cwm with all my other phones and i just like using what i know and am comfortable with it, will i fudge everything up trying to use rom manager to flash cwm rather than the fastboot method.
p.s. thank you for the link and advise
you can try it if you every have to restore a nandroid backup and CWM fails all you have to do is flash TWRP and restore
here is a link to a CWM
