To finally flash it, make sure you're in the bootloader and you see "FASTBOOT USB". Hold the shift key and right-click, and click "Open command window here". Now place TWRP in the folder used to push the Unlock_code.bin (Contains fastboot.exe and is usually located at C:\Android or C\:fastboot) and type "fastboot flash recovery (name of recovery file).img. If you want, I can elaborate further.
So I finally got around to doing this, after buying a replacement phone off a guy on Craigslist, but I would still like to try and get this phone back up and running... I downloaded all the files and installed adb, etc. When I try to run the command, "fastboot flash recovery TWRP_2.6.3.0_Vigor_PH98IMG.zip" I get the following in the terminal:

sending 'recovery' (6323 KB)...
OKAY [ 1.464s]
writing 'recovery'...
FAILED (remote: image error! (BootMagic check fail))
finished. total time: 1.780s

Any other ideas??

You don't flash the zip, extract the file and flash the recovery.img file.

Wipe, flash a ROM, and manually flash boot image... Other than that, could be toast.

Can it be a stock ROM, or would it have to be something like CyanogenMod?

I think its irrelevant at this point... Personally, I would use EclipticRez v9 or Tachyon as they are both rock solid ROMs. EclipticRez includes an Aroma installer script, so it might be a little easier (select S-ON and Lunar kernel).

I actually found this thread earlier - http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2632629 and followed the instructions, it was giving me some trouble around step 10 and kept going back into the bootloop. Then I tried it for probably the 5th time and it finally worked!! So the phone is back to full function now. I've been out of the house for a few hours, but it worked before your last reply literally right before I walked out the door.

Thank you SOOOO SOOOO SOOOOO much for the advice both on this thread and on that one I mentioned above (since it was also your instructions there)

The [semi] good news is that I found one on Craigslist (same phone because I really like it) for just $60 a couple days after I got fed up with using the OG Incredible. And the guy had 2 extra batteries, a case, and ghost armor on the screen as well. So now I have the original Rezound and the spare.
