HTC One V Recovery Flashable Zip Via Hboot

Anyone that knows the benefits of having a custom recovery flashed on an android device would want to flash a custom recovery like CWM, TeamWIM or 4ext recovery but I have seen all the risky methods being used to flash custom recovery on HTC One V so, I came up with a simple and safer method.
I made a zip file named which is flashable via hboot. This file contains a TeamWIN, TWRP recovery.img for the HTC One V primo (GSM).

Since the HTC One V primo (GSM) is shipped stock with an ICS bootloader, you do not need to upgrade your bootloader to run higher version of android however, an ENG-off hboot or bootloader could be useful for your phone.

Hboot is the term HTC uses to refer to their android boot loaders which loads and boots either android or recovery. Meanwhile, an ENG-off boot loader gives you the opportunity to modify or flash certain partitions or .img file on the android device like the radio, recovery or even the boot loader itself which ordinarily, you would need root permission to perform some of these tasks within the android.

Also, with an ENG-off hboot, you have the opportunity to load both signed and unsigned versions of ROM on the phone; especially useful for breaked android devices.
