    Great post! However, I am getting stuck booting into twrp recovery mode. Followed all the steps and they appeared to work. Fastboot says it is unlocked and flashing. Got to this step: fastboot flash recovery recovery.img in command prompt.
    It states:
    target reported max download size of 536870912 bytes
    sending ‘recovery’ (10236 KB)…
    OKAY [ 0.220s]
    writing ‘recovery’…
    (bootloader) Image not signed or corrupt
    OKAY [ 0.172s]
    finished. total time: 0.391s

    I then go to my phone (already in fastboot) and select RECOVERY MODE. It displays “start up failed”.
    The error codes in the Bootloader Logs are:
    error: failed to load kernal!

    If you can assist me in figuring this out, I will gladly donate to a Paypal account if you have one!

    Much appreciated!
