Nexus 4 Stock Recovery Flasher v0.6

Have you ever get into a situation where you have a custom recovery on a stock rom and then get a OTA update then you find out that you need to flash the stock recovery to flash?, well this Nexus 4 Stock Recovery Flasher will sort it all out.
DISCLAMER: I am not responsible for ANY damage to your device what so ever, if your device flies away then that is not my problem.
NOTICE: This will flash the Android 4.3 and above stock recovery so if you have issues with the recovery just by having anything that is suppose to be running on Android 4.2.2 or below then that is your problem, it is possible to get the Android 4.2.2 recovery but it is pointless really since Android 4.3 is the latest version.
Also, PLEASE make sure you flash the recovery which is intended for that Android version so for example 4.3 recovery for 4.3 and 4.4 recovery for 4.4.x.

Be sure to donate to me if I really helped you.
Starts from Android 4.3 Stock Recovery
Windows, Linux and CASUAL Version is available.

Minitools:

Version 0.1: Initial Release
Version 0.2: Fixed Echo commands and added a command that I forgot to add. [Last 4.3]
Version 0.3: 4.4 KitKat recovery added (Replaces 4.3 Recovery)

Flashable Zip:

Version 0.1: Initial Release
Version 0.2: Unknown, I forgot to add that "minor" incremental changelog ages ago. :S
Version 0.3: Now works in all recoveries thanks to Flintburg. [Last 4.3]
Version 0.4: 4.4 KitKat recovery added (replaces 4.3 Recovery)

CASUAL:

Version 0.2: Initial Release (based on the minitool).
Version 0.3: Added banner.
Version 0.4: Fixed commands, this will fix the execution issues so I would upgrade unless you want to have a broken version, turns out that the CASUAL I am currently using is missing Fastboot, I will look at this and try fixing it in a certain future version.
This will set a new requirement which is to have a custom recovery as it is the only way to replace the recovery that way (this uses the Flashable zip since there are no other methods), it will remain like this until CASUAL supports Fastboot.
Version 0.5: Added the latest Flashable Zip (as of this date which is v0.3), should work in all recoveries now.
Version 0.6: 4.4 KitKat recovery added

What features/files does the minitool contain?, well...:
The Stock Recovery Flasher (obviously), batch file updater to update the file itself so you don't need to waste your time downloading the file again as an update, ADB files, Fastboot, wget for Windows to download the file which is required for the updater and of course the stock Android recovery.

If you want I can give you the Android 4.2.2 recovery.img image for the tool.

The updater was introduced from the Soft-Brick Recovery Project for the LG GT540 which I created myself.

Anyway post your results below so I know if it works or anything like that.

By the way in case you where wondering why all the files are in one place its because that I cannot find out a CMD command to move a file back one directory for the updater, if I do my method then it has to be in a certain directory so unfortunately that's how it is going to be until I find out the command.

I was thinking about it but looking at the rules of posting or whatever it did not mention anything or any part of this simple tool.
EDIT: Just PMed Mike, now we will have to just wait for the options...
EDIT 2: Moved!

Bump for being the easiest place to find the .img for the stock recovery. Thanks man! And if you're looking to move up a directory, it's just
Code:
cd ..

Yeah that is the problem, I can't move the file like that unfortunately, I guess I will have to leave it to that.

The ones that echo the input text to output text like within the batch script.
