sowhat we can do now
i have a same proplem cannot load 'recovery,img'
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]
OKAY [ 2.189s]

Wonderful. You probably have "hide file extensions for known file types" checked. So when you downloaded the original, it ACTUALLY had a .img on the end of it already (which windows hid from you). Windows, unlike unix, cannot differentiate files based on their header, but instead relies on a useless extension in the file name of all places (ie, .img, .mp3 and .jpg at the end of the filename).
And noo problem mate, happy to help.
the same exact thing happens to me ive been at it for days now i get this error trying to flash cwrm and twrp so i can root my phone or can i root it without the recovery?
this is the error as reads in the cmd promt
