    Hello all,

    I had bought a HTC M8 Eye and came with Stock rom kitkat4.4.4

    I had followed the root methods. Successfully unlocked the bootloader

    1. Boots into bootloader
    2. After attempting to flash the TWRP recovery image to the device I am not able to enter recovery. The system does attempt to enter and I receive the pink message at the top of the screen "Entering Recovery..." but then the system reboots and enters the bootloader
    3. If i reboot it phone boots normally.
    4. I have tried to flash twrp or cwm both - no results.
    5. I tried to flash many versions of twrp and cwm - no results
    6. i tried to clear cache via ADB and flash recovery again - no result

    Kindly help
    Thanks in advance.

    Sounds like you are flashing the wrong recovery. You need the recovery for your specific phone and carrier

    By the looks of the recoveries you installed you have sprint and verizon recoveries in the list to. My guess you still have the wrong recovery flashed
    This is the one you want...Techerrata Downloads - Browsing m8. Grab the 2.8.1 and flash it

    Are you rooted by chance?

    Have you tried booting into recovery with fastboot? Then you can install superuser and try TWRP Manager or flashify to install recovery

    "fastboot boot openrecovery-twrp-"

    EDIT: I just did it and it to said boot img but it did boot into recovery

    No idea why its saying downloading boot.img. It should be the recovery img. Doyou have abootimg in your fastboot/adb folder? also you ddo have the recovery img in there right?

    I find renaming the recovery to just "recovery" it makes it easier to remember and type so it would be

    fastboot boot recovery.img

    Well i would say is this recovery doesn't support the M8 EYE so until there is a recovery for that model you are out of luck. you can try Phils recovery
