Default Root problem with fastboot

I have to post here because I am new and cannot post in the development section.

I was using the root method in http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1668173. I have firmware .30 which people have confirmed this method works on. When trying to push the recovery image using "fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery recovery.img" it just shows a list of commands:

c:\Recovery1>fastboot -i 0x0B05 flash recovery recovery.img
usage: fastboot [ <option> ] <command>

commands:
update <filename> reflash device from update.zip
flashall 'flash boot' + 'flash system'
flash <partition> [ <filename> ] write a file to a flash partition
erase <partition> erase a flash partition
getvar <variable> display a bootloader variable
boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk> ] download and boot kernel
flash:raw boot <kernel> [ <ramdisk> ] create bootimage and flash it
devices list all connected devices
reboot reboot device normally
reboot-bootloader reboot device into bootloader

options:
-w erase userdata and cache
-s <serial number> specify device serial number
-p <product> specify product name
-c <cmdline> override kernel commandline


There is no option for -i. I tried just "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" and I get this :

c:\Recovery1>fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
< waiting for device >

And it just stays there. All drivers are current. Device is unlocked. The tablet is in fastboot mode. Any help would be appreciated.

Ok, solved the problem. For some reason the fastboot.exe I was using was a different version? It was the one from the tools folder in the SDK directory (971k). I used the one from tools-platform (138k) and worked like a charm.

Mods feel free to delete this thread.

Have you read the General and the Dev forums before to post here.
I think not completely.

Because if you had read correctly, you would have seen that there is a small guide to install and use Fastboot simply
Here : [GUIDE] Help for flash more faster when you use Fastboot Line Command in this index that everybody can read.
