  7. Launch a Command Prompt Window where the extracted ADB files are located. To do that, simply hold down Shift and right-click anywhere on your screen and select Open command window here.

    adb shell
    dd if=/sdcard/RECOVERYNAME.img of=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery
  9. Wait for it to install recovery on your device.
  10. When it’s done installing recovery, reboot your device.
