Unlocked BL, but can't install custom recovery
So my friend and I both have razr M's.
His was bought through a 3rd party and already had the bootloader unlocked, but was updated to the latest VZW update for the M.
I cannot for the life of me get a custom recovery to install.
First I tried the traditional "fastboot flash recovery" method. It sends the recovery without error messages, but attempting to reboot into the recovery only yields the green android with the exclamation point coming out of his chest.
I next tried to even just boot the recovery image from the bootloader, which gave me the operation not permitted error.
Any ideas as to why this may be happening? I feel like I'm pretty android-savvy, but this is stumping me. My initial guess would be that it was because he took the latest update on the stock recovery, but even then his bootloader is still unlocked.
