Nope there is no relationship with recovery and rooting.

I can't see how misspelling the blob causes an issue? You can call it anything you want.

This was from my other thread about how long it takes to flash custom recovery.

I saved the blob as twrp but used trap in the cmd.

I should have figured it out when the flash recovery command said "parameter not found" when I ctrl-c'ed out. Thanks for your help.
