Ok solved it. downloaded the official 25R and did an dab side load as i had the stock recovery.
I had the same issue last night, so I copied all the .img files to the adb/fastboot directory, and manually flashed each partition via 'fastboot flash recovery recovery.img' and so on. That worked just fine. Since userdata.img wasn't backed up, there's no need to flash it.
I'm still curious why 'fastboot flash -w <zip filename>.zip' insists it can't find the .img files even though they're in the archive. It worked for other people I assume, so why doesn't it work for all?
