Default No Custom Recovery for KitKat 4.4

Just an FYI. I have an unlocked bootloader and had a good working version of TWRP 2.7.0.0 I planned to reinstall after I took the OTA. I get no errors when I flash it; however, when I try to enter recovery, I can only get into the new stock recovery..

By linking that particular recovery, does that mean TWRP does not work? Also can you please link the correct, fastboot flashable superuser as I can't seem to find mine and don't know if I can trust Google on this one. Thanks!

TWRP needs to be updated.
It's easier to flash SuperSU through recovery then to push it through ADB, but you must boot straight into recovery right after you flash it.
I dont know if you use fastboot or Mfastboot.

TYPE:
Code:
Select Code
mfastboot flash recovery "recovery-name".img

THEN TYPE:
Code:
Select Code
mfastboot reboot
When you press enter, hold volume up to enter recovery and flash SuperSU.
