Default [Q] Fastboot flash recovery image size exceeded partition limits error

Hello,

I'm trying to install 4.4.2 Rom http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2607249 by arrrghhh.

when I try to install twrp I get the following error:

Code:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools>fastboot flash recover
y openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.4-hammerhead.img
(bootloader) Variable not supported!
target reported max download size of 31457280 bytes
sending 'recovery' (13272 KB)...
OKAY [  0.997s]
writing 'recovery'...
(bootloader) Image size exeeded partition limits
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 1.238s
Also the green android with the open belly appears and I stopped it by holding powerbutton, and now it says Fastboot reason: Flash failure in the screen.

I tried installing goomanager and install twrp from there, but it didn't seem to work.

Please advice how to get the twrp to install correctly so I can flash the rom.

Thanks,
Stani

Why are you trying to install TWRP for the hammerhead (Nexus5)?!@??

That could cause SERIOUS damage. Please install a recovery for your device.

If you want to use GooManager, you need to be rooted. Regardless, you need to have your bootloader unlocked to install any custom recovery.

Default didn't find one

Wow,

I must have miss downloaded it, browsing threads...

Can you give a link to one that is for photon Q ?

The bootloader is unlocked, but I couldn't install superSU yet.

To be honest I'm kinda lost reading all those different threads.

At the same time I want to try your 4.4.2 )

Thanks,
Stani
