On the code fastboot flash recovery will be constant but the recovery.img can be changed.

9.Now to flash complete firmaware just place it on same folder and type “fastboot flash zip”.

similarly as above the code fastboot flash zip is constant , just need to change


NOte: Its seem in Android V5 and above the code fastboot does not implemet directly instead that there is suffix added with it i.e.  -i ox1ebf .Thus the final code is “fastboot -i ox1ebf flash recovery”.The above code was utilize in yureka to interface with fastboot device ,where ox1ebf looks like defining memory or system address and -i is an argument.
