    long story short. I have an HTC one, it is currently unable to move past the initial logo upon booting.
    trying to flash new rom.. i guess.. Finally got fastboot and abd to install properly but now I am getting this error:
    C:\Users\Gateway>fastboot devices
    FA425W909681 fastboot

    C:\Users\Gateway>fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
    error: cannot open 'twrp.img'

    After several attempts at doing this from numerous online resources I AM FRUSTRATED. Can someone who has actually made this work respond. I will take instructions for MAC or PC, please.

    rooted, tmobile, htc one.

    Hello.

    Is the twrp.img located in the same folder as the fastboot files?

    Mate, can you please remove the TWRP .img you have and redownload one from TWRP's website? Here's a link to their latest version to make it easier: Techerrata Downloads - Downloading openrecovery-twrp-2.7.1.1-m7.img

    After doing so, place the recovery inside your fastboot folder and rename it to recovery.img, open a command prompt window from inside that folder by holding SHIFT and clicking the right mouse button and choosing "Open command prompt window here" then

    Code:
    fastboot devices
    Code:
    fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
    And after it hopefully says successful wipe your cache

    Code:
    fastboot erase cache
    And you're good to go!


    EDIT: I'd actually try wiping your cache BEFORE and after the process.

    You're most welcome man! Well, that means there's an issue with the HTC drivers installed on your computer (or maybe they aren't even installed), so download and install the latest HTC Sync (Google it), then restart your computer and repeat the process.

    Could this 'adb-setup-1.3.exe' that i installed the adb w be the reason why my device is not showing up in the cmd? i did as you prescribed above but still it resists....why... i reinstalled sync and all that.. the driver successfully installed......i dont know.

    I have never wiped the cache before or after installing TWRP. Is this going to cause a problem in the long run... or what?

    Had the same problem. File was in the same folder but did not work until I copied full path of the img file instead of just writing the file name

    OMG thank you. After an whole hour finally got the solution.
    For those whose didn't get it just copy the file path by clicking shift and right click on the file and select copy file path and then paste it after recovery in the code.
    Thanks man!
