Default [Q] fastboot boot

I'm using the Google Play Edition v1.3.0 | 4.4.2 | 1.16.1700.16 ROM by HolyAngel

The phone recovery is stock and I want to fastboot into philz modified cwm recovery.

I issue
Code:
Select Code
fastboot boot philz_touch_6.25.5-m8.img
and watch the following go by
Code:
Select Code
downloading 'boot.img'...
OKAY [  1.252s]
booting...
OKAY [  0.016s]
finished. total time: 1.268s
The phone hangs for about 10 seconds and then boots normally showing the white HTC screen with red text and then the Google splash screen.

How can I get into recovery?

If you're trying to flash a recover you should be using:

Code:
Select Code
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
Then once it's done, you can always access recovery through the bootloader. There's an option there.
If you are having problems with accessing Recovery, I would recommend doing

Code:
Select Code
fastboot erase cache
Seems to fix most problems when it comes to trying to get into recovery.

To be clear, I do not wish to flash recovery only boot into it temporarily. The method in my post worked just fine with the stock roms.
Code:
Select Code
fastboot erase cache
didnt have any effect on the boot process. Thanks for trying.

Understand what you are trying to do but never tried it.

Does the phone meet all the normal requirements to run a custom recovery? (root/su etc)

You say it worked with stock roms. Where these rooted?


I UPGRADED TO A 5GHZ CABLE HUB FOR THIS???


IF I DON'T HELP YOU, IT'S NOT BECAUSE I DON'T GIVE A TOSS. I JUST DON'T KNOW THE ANSWER.
IF I DO, PLEASE HIT THE THANKS BUTTON.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think the booting into recovery command has been disabled..just like the M7 where j came from and to my knowledge the newer bootloaders disabled that ..so you couldn't just boot into recovery you'd have to flash it.

DONATE TO ME
Booting into recovery was not disabled on the m8. I have done it many times. It didn't work on the m7. The reason why it's not working on a gpe is the boot offsets are different. If you were on a sense rom it would work just fine. For the GPE when I did the conversion I had to use an unpublished recovery that allowed me to boot recovery..
