I have flashed and followed exactly the procedure you said bt it still cant accept custom recovery @mboy when you bought ur own infinix which version did it come pre-installed with? I guess its kitkat cos mine is pre-installed lollipop..so no custom recovery can work for it.. I have flashed up to hundred custom recovery yet no one works so i came to realize that infinix has started locking up their bootloaders and provide strong security so that tweaking becomes difficult. I mean you can not flash custom roms, recovery and co to their new devices.. The simple truth is that i hv realised that some infinix phones cant be tweaked no matter hw hard you try n ds my fone is one of them.. Anyway tanks for all ur effort to help esp hovatek n co..
