Maybe this will help, Info Link

In other words, update your fastboot.

tried that but still same thing. it as if when i connect my phone via usb it all the sudden "cannot open" because i tried the command without my phone plugged in and it said waiting for device. once i plugged it in it gave me "cannot open".
is there any other way to install a custom recovery without fast boot? or a computer?

You can use a crutch yes.
It's called Flashify. It's in the Play Store.
Problem with that is at some point you are gonna need fastboot.
Trying to learn how when you are in a critical position, such as your phone is completely wiped or can't boot to OS, isn't the time to try and figure it out.
So I suggest even if you use flashify, that you figure out how to get fastboot working.

You could use a usb-otg cable and a usb drive to flash recovery as a PN07IMG.zip in hboot also. You can also flash firmware, ruu's, or any other system img that way. As long as your s-off that is.

It sounds to me like it's your usb cable. Are you using the original one that came with your phone?
