I'm on a C6603 with an Unlocked Bootloader running 10.5.A.0.230 from an FTF flash.

I flashed this recovery's boot.img via fastboot and it worked fine. Went in to recovery and it can't flash anything. The internal storage only shows default folders but it claims they are all empty. SD Card wont mount at all, when I click on it it just hangs for like 30 seconds then errors saying unable to mount. I'm guessing this may be due to not flashing the full zip and only the boot.img? If so, how do I go about flashing the full zip since my recovery wont find it? I amen't rooted since I can't flash the SU APK & Binary zip in recovery...

Any ideas on how to fix recovery then gain root? (I'm having the battery drain issue and I can't live with like 2 hours screen off time)

The install instructions, if you could actually call them that, are horrendously worded. Any more understandable ones? (I'm not a noob, I'm pretty experienced, those instructions are truly just ****ty)...
