Okay, now trying to flash the stock recovery to get the phone exchanged for radio issues, I am running into the same problem. I tried both computers now. Hopefully I figure it out soon, had to activate an old blackberry for the time being.

"sending 'recovery' (16472 KB)...
FAILED (remote: not allowed)
finished. total time: 0.007s"

I have had the same problem before on a different phone. All you need to do is put it on the sd card and use the boot loader method. The phone will automatically find it and flash it. Then just remove sd card and delete file so it doesn't keep prompting to flash it every time you reboot.

RECOVERY: TWRP

To flash a recovery? Just rename the recovery as a radio file?
