Default Fastboot 'Sending Recovery' Hangs

Hey guys, I'd appreciate it if you could help with this.

I have a HTC One V Virgin Mobile phone that I want to root. So I have followed the steps in the stickied threads to the best of my knowledge. When I go to the bootloader it says my phone is unlocked, so I can assume that part is working.

Now onto the rooting part. This is what I have typed into the console.

C:\Users\*******\Desktop\Phone Hack>fastboot flash recovery twrprecovery.img
< waiting for device >
sending 'recovery' (5396 KB)...

A green loading bar appears on my phones screen but does not appear to fill up. The phone itself seems frozen. If I close the command prompt and unplug my phone, I can work with it again. I waited for about a half hour twice now seeing if it just took a long time.

Anyways, to me, it does not look like my computer is sending anything at all.

Also, 'fastboot devices' shows my phone when I type it into the command line.

Help is appreciated.

This must sound dumb, but have you tried renaming it recovery.img ?

That worked like a charm. Thanks a lot.

Now to install supersu. Is there a way to do so without using an SD card?

If you can get CWM on there, or any other recovery that supports sideloading, you could use a CWM zip and flash it via adb sideload nameofzipfilehere.zip

just make it a short name, so you don't run in any problems with spaces or such.e.g supersu.zip
