Default [Q] unable to enter recovery

Hi all

generally i dont post to forums because usually searching around can find the answer i need and not waste anyones time. but on this, i really am stumped. ive gone through the process of rooting/unlocking/etc a bunch of different android phones and never had a problem like this before.

so i unlocked the bootloader/s-off/rooted all through rumrunner today. everything went fine, says *unlocked* and s-off in hboot. ran rootchecker and that is working fine.

tried flashing CWM - both through fastboot and the Rom Manager app. both would boot to white HTC logo screen with "Entering Recovery..." in pink on the top, sit there for a few seconds, and then reset and boot into normal os.

so i decided to use TWRP (never really used it much). tried it through fastboot and GooManager. well, same thing happens here.

have tried flashing both, as well as stock, a half dozen times each at least. made sure i had the correct versions of the .img files, fastboot erase cache 25+ times. nothing can get me into recovery.

currently flashed back to stock recovery to run OTA updates. the .15 one and the upgrade to 4.3.

please, any and all suggestions welcome!

Are you sure you are using the Verizon versions of the recoveries? There are several versions of both for the One.
TWRP
CWM

See if you can fastboot flash an insecure Boot.img from my stock rom and radio thread.
If you are on the 1.10.605.15 software, grab the appropriate one that matches.
You will have to take the Boot.img out of the zip file.
Then place it in your fastboot/adb directory.
Code:
fastboot flash boot boot.img
If that succeeds, then try flashing a Recovery again and see if it will load.
Not really sure that's the issue or why you are having that problem.
Seems to me, fastboot erase cache, and fastboot flash recovery nameofrecovery.img should be enough.
