This actually helped me after at least 1-2 hours to understand what was the deal.

fastboot recovery recovery.img.img


Can someone please confirm if the following completes the rooting process?

sending 'recovery' <6308 KB>...
OKAY [ 0.601s]
writing 'recovery'...
OKAY [ 2.189s]
finished. total time: 2.792s

Got another Method to solve recovery.img load error
Hi there !!! Just found it somewhere on the net .... If you get a recovery.img load error it is due to CMD not run from the same folder as that of the recovery.img .... Simply Press SHIFT and RIGHT CLICK and in the menu select RUN COMMAND WINDOW HERE ... Then run the command and It should do its work Right !!! Hope it helps You too

This is absolutely crazy but this also solved my problem with the auto complete and the double img being needed even though the instructions say to be sure NOT to do double img. Crazy, but it worked. Thank you!

for example:

fastboot flash recovery rec[TAB] --> autocompletes to recovery.img

I'm running out of ideas here

And noo problem mate, happy to help.
