Default [Q] Odd Recovery problem

I'll be as descriptive as possible.

I must have did a bad flash with CWM, so I tried to reflash with CWM, TWRP, and even the OEM recovery. When attempting to boot to recovery, the screen goes blank. My pc attempts to connect every drive letter I've got when I plug in the usb. Among which, I can access an image folder on the device. Can't figure out how a bad recovery flash does this, but I can't find a fix for the life of me. Phone works as it should. My problem is anything involving recovery will give me a black screen, so factory wipe will not work.

Any ideas would be well appreciated.
Thanks

I tried following this guide: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2471370

The program get's stuck at analyzing device and doesn't flash or download anything. It would be nice if I can perform at least a factory reset in case something wants to blow up in my face. If anyone has some ideas (ridiculous or not), feel free to let me know.

I tried using that method. It gives me the same thing. Maybe somewhere in the recovery location (or associated locations) seem to may have gotten damaged somehow during the bad flash? Flashing the phone completely I'm sure would do the trick. I came from the droid 4, so sbf/fastboot flash would solve all my problems. Searching around landed me to a kdz, which seemed to be an equivalent, but isn't working or maybe I'm doing something wrong? Any advice on this would be greatly appreciated.

I went and did a full flash using this method: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2448960. Since I couldn't find a recovery fix per se, I decided to flash the whole thing and start fresh (oh well).
It downgraded to 11A in the process, so the same can probably be said for 10B for compatible custom builds.
