Default Flashing recovery but its not working

Hi, I have a rooted Sprint LG G2 and have been trying to get a custom recovery working. I downloaded TWRP 2.7 and flashed the zip with Flashify but it doesnt seem to be working even though I get a message saying it was flashed. If I reboot into recovery it just reboots the phone and if I manually try to boot into recovery it goes to stock recovery. Anyone know how I might fix this and get it to work?

Are you on kitkat or jellybean also flashify is for flashing images and if you aren't careful you can just brick

I'm on Kitkat. Flashify has an option for zips so I thought it would work.

Well you should be glad it didn't work otherwise you would end up with a broken recovery or a soft brick, anyways you should use AutoRec to install custom recovery on kitkat

I couldnt sideload apps from my SD card so I had to factory reset. Maybe because I tried flashing a zip? Well I used AutoRec now and have a custom recovery. Than you!
