So far as I can tell, no. The command being used with that image is "fastboot boot
", not "fastboot flash
". The former is (so far as I can tell) a "download this image and use it to boot once" command; it (if I'm reading correctly) wouldn't actually overwrite the recovery on your phone. The latter, OTOH, would surely overwrite your recovery, and would probably be ill-advised here (judging by some other posts, the OP gave it a try and subsequently recovery on the OP's phone stopped working).
So unless that recovery image is so horribly broken that even just booting with it will release the magic smoke (unlikely, as I doubt TeamWin would release it in that state
), I suspect it'd be fine. Probably. Just make sure you get the command right!
DISCLAIMER: I'm not actually fully familiar with fastboot myself, but I've worked with similar utilities on similar devices before (in particular, for my old Nokia N900). Have seen similar distinctions between "use this image this one time only" and "flash this image to the device and use it", though, so I'm feeling good about what amounts to an educated guess here.
