Maybe this will help, Info Link

In other words, update your fastboot.

tried that but still same thing. it as if when i connect my phone via usb it all the sudden "cannot open" because i tried the command without my phone plugged in and it said waiting for device. once i plugged it in it gave me "cannot open".
is there any other way to install a custom recovery without fast boot? or a computer?

You could use a usb-otg cable and a usb drive to flash recovery as a PN07IMG.zip in hboot also. You can also flash firmware, ruu's, or any other system img that way. As long as your s-off that is.

Do I just rename the file .zip?

What OS are you on?

The fastboot command is as follows and I usually just rename the image to recovery.img so that's what I wrote below but you can name it whatever you want.

Code:
Select Code
 fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Also you need to be in the same directory in cmd prompt. So if the file is in c:\platform-tools then in cmd prompt you should see.

c:\platform-tools>

If not type

cd c:\platform-tools

Or whatever directory you need to reach.
To make sure the file is there type dir and you will get a list of files within the directory you are in.

Other than that you may need to sort out your fastboot drivers especially if using Windows 8

For ruu's and firmware yes you just rename it, but for .img files they need to be packed into a zip and named exactly PN07IMG.zip. The usb drive needs to be formated fat32, and the file placed on it in no folders. Then with the usb attatched, boot to hboot. After a few secs hboot should find the file automaticly and prompt you to wether you want to install it or not. Here is a pre zipped twrp 2.7.0.1 you can use http://vzw1files.dyndns.org/RECOVERI...1_RUU_Mode.zip
