Worked perfect for me. Just got it with stock 4.4.2, rooted it with TowelRoot v1 (from here), then installed the following apps from Play Store: SuperSU (with binaries) and BusyBox.

It was easier to just download the "TWRP-Nexus5repack-AO1.img" (from here) and then renamed it to "recovery.img" and copied it to the root of the phone's internal storage (aka. /sdcard/)

1.) Boot up phone normally, make sure that USB Debugging is enabled (in Developer Options), connect phone to computer via USB.
2.) Then in command prompt (on computer in folder with ADB files), ran this:
Code:
adb shell su -c 'dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery' bs=4096; sync; reboot recovery;"
3.) Check your device for any pop-ups and grant root access to shell. Allow any Superuser permissions that pop up.
4.) IMPORTANT: Wait 2 minutes after the screen is black, and then press power button.

Done.

Hope this helps someone out there.

Rooted with TowelRoot v1 and installed SuperSU.

Downloaded the recovery and put it on the root of the sdcard which is sdcard0

Opened command prompt in my adb folder and pasted the following:

Code:
adb shell "curl 'http://builds.casual-dev.com/files/Asus/Padfone%20X/TWRP-Nexus5repack-AO1.img'>/sdcard/recovery.img; su -c 'dd if=/sdcard/recovery.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery' bs=4096; sync; reboot recovery;"
Hit enter, phone rebooted and went to the Asus screen and has been sitting there ever since. Anyone have any suggestions on what went wrong and how to fix it?

EDIT: Rebooted phone and now it's booting up. Checking to see if recovery is installed.

EDIT 2: Now I have no recovery at all.

EDIT 3: Followed instructions in the post above, phone won't even boot now.

EDIT 4: Got phone to reboot and is now booting up. Still no recovery installed.

EDIT 5: I boot into what should be recovery mode, screen displays the ASUS logo for a few seconds, then goes black.

EDIT 6: Waited the 2 minutes (actually about 1 minute) pressed the power button and TWRP showed up. Thanks to everyone who worked on this!

adb shell "curl 'https://builds.casual-dev.com/files/CASPAC/Asus/Padfone%20X/TWRP-Nexus5repack-AO1.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery' bs=4096; sync; reboot recovery;"

The recovery link I found does not work. When flashed I hit power after 2 mins and nothing. Can anyone help me get twrp or any custom recovery on this thing?

Look at the post on top of this page, I show you how to do it with details.

I recommend to download the img onto your computer first.
