Default [Q] Problem with Recovery

So I posted ages ago about my phone having ROM loading issues, it no longer loads any ROMs. I have been told to flash 4ext again but i cannot find a tutorial on how to flash via fastboot, and i need help, i cant find links for 4ext to flash or any guides on how to do it, just how to update via the app on the phone, but, like i said, the phone has no rom so i cant reset my recovery.

I had pretty much the same error but do you think flashing the latest recovery will work for CWM recovery as well?
