Question [Q] Cannot updade TWRP

Two questions actually. I have a tf300t, unlocked, currently running TWRP 2.6.3.0 and an old CM. Tried to flash a new 4.4.2 ROM, but it failed in TWRP. I read this is caused by having an old TWRP, so I'm trying to update it.

First, twrp's site has the newest twrp for the tf300t at 2.6.3.0. However, the ROM's page says to flash the 2.6.3.2 TWRP which doesn't exist on TWRP's site. Why does it not exist?

Second, I downloaded the linked TWRP file from the ROM's page, but it's a zip. When I try to flash it using fastboot and bootloader, fastboot acts like everything succeeded is fine but the tablet never installs anything. Fastboot reboot does nothing. However, if I try to flash a .blob, it works and the tablet gets the progress bar and it flashes. What should I do to get TWRP updated so I can flash a new ROM?

Thanks!

You flash the twrp 3.6.3.2 zip in your existing recovery not fastboot install it. Then reboot to android. (Required). Now go back into recovery.

Because TeamWin has not released a TWRP working for KitKat ROMs for our device yet. The one available in the OmniROM thread is scanno's own, unofficial build.
