I do not have access to recovery. Stock or Custom. Phone is GPE, but not able to get into recovery mode.

I have OS installed, not rooted at the moment, and access to unlocked bootloader. How do I get it going? Trying to enter recovery any which way yeilds a black screen.

Can I write back stock system.img, recovery.img boot.img using fastboot?

What about flashtool, anything that I can use there to help me? Are there any flashtool based packages?

Thanks! Much help is needed.

Have you tried connecting your device to the PC via fastboot (hold vol up while plugging the device to the PC)? Doing that should present you with a screen with options (scroll through them with the volume buttons and power button to select), one of which is "reboot to system". Try this and see if this works.

There are two rules in life for being successful:

1. Never reveal everything you know;
2.

Yes I can get into fastboot mode. I'm able to boot into OS, just not recovery.

I have a doomkernel installed as well in attempt to get into recovery but nothing yet.

Did you try any of the methods I posted to get into recovery? Just a guess but adb reboot recovery may not work as I think they use FOTA kernel partition for recovery.

Sorry, i misread your post. Does the black screen you are on when you boot into recovery have any kind of drawing (exclamation sign, android on its back with an open chest, etc)?

You might have to flash a recovery again...
