guys... i've searched everywhere... how to install recovery ?
i have root and bootloader unlocked.
everywhere i go i see it's a flashable zip... but how do i install a flashable zip when i don't have a recovery installed ?

i've tried flashing the recovery.img from those zip through fastboot. but no luck... i'm on .283 kernel.

You can use adb commands or Flash Tool!
1)Download any dogo ROM or any flashable kernel zip!
2)Open that zip and find boot.img file.
3)Extract that to a folder.
4)Use adb or flashtool method

adb method:
Install adb drivers and adb cmd
Go to the folder where you extracted the boot.img
Press CTRL + Right Click and click on open with adb
Once adb is opened in that directory,
Type this : fastboot flash boot boot.IMG

Open flashtool
Click on thunder sign and select fastboot

Select kernel to flash
Navigate to folder where u extracted boot.img
By default *.sin are shown. Change it *.img by selecting it in the menu
Select boot.img and in 10 sec u r recovery will be flashed

found my way....

- download any stock .283 kernel ftf.
- extract the kernel.sin using winrar
- send it over to nut's recovery website
- it generates a flashable recovery.
- extract the boot.img
- flash it using flashtool's fast boot method.
- done

check out nut's recovery... pretty handy script there that generates most of the recovery flashable.
