Default [Q] What recovery do I need to flash 4.4 ROMs?

I know last time I tried flashing a 4.4 ROM I would get some error because of some weird compatibility thing with CWM or TWRP or something like that. I don't remember which recovery it was that I needed that would let me flash, I'm trying to flash beanstalk

You should flash the boot.img from the rom zip using fastboot, then boot into recovery and flash the rom.
I would advise doing a lot more research of how to flash custom roms and how to fix potential problems before continuing on any further as it will save you time in the future in case of any problems.
