That's what you want to see. Now, with that symbol shown, hold down Volume Up + Power and voila, stock recovery. You unlocked the bootloader, so you can now flash a custom recovery if you so choose to.

As far as I know, it's looking for a custom recovery. So it's okay, as long as your recovery works. :)

Do you have sdk or fastboot and adb setup on your pc ? you need to flash the recovery image with fastboot. Once you have a recovery installed then you can flash zips while in recovery

You need your bootloader unlocked and a custom recovery, you can't mod without a custom recovery.

You need to disable the signature verification in recovery. You have a unsigned rom and the recovery is looking for a signature

He's stock, you can't mod from a stock recovery.

Here you go, the 3 files it asks for so you don't have to download the whole SDK-- oh, you already did. Well, here you go, including Fastboot.exe
