Default [Q] Unlocked but can't get recovery to install

I followed these directions by timaaaaa

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2593382

I have unlocked my device but I can't seem to get recovery to flash properly. I've tried to flash TWRP 2.7 and an older one 2.63 but when I reboot into bootloader I don't have the option to boot into recovery.

I know I can read my CID as 111111 and I am unlocked as my bootloader shows TAMPERED and UNLOCKED. What am I doing wrong? I thought I followed the directions to a tee!

Bootloader information:

TAMPERED
UNLOCKED
EVITA PVT SHIP S-ON RL
HBOOT-2.14.0000
RADIO-0.24p.32.09.06
OpendDSP-v34.1.0.45.1219
eMMC-boot

While in bootloader you can use the volume buttons to scroll and the power button to select recovery.

Recovery is not an option.

The only options are:

BOOTLOADER
REBOOT
REBOOT BOOTLOADER
POWER DOWN

That's because you're in fastboot, not bootloader (I'm guessing you're connected via usb). Select bootloader, then you'll see recovery as an option.

It's no problem at all. Instead of saying thanks, please press the thanks button on any posts you find helpful on XDA, it's how we show our gratitude on here. Just for future reference.
