You spoke about recovery, and batch tool to install a firmware is another thing. Recovery is one thing, and putting device to download mode (to flash a firmware) is another thing.
Just open batch tool, connect through usb and boot with power and Volume + until you see the green box in batch tool. If you see in pink just press switch button until it turns green. Make sure you have installed drivers if batchtool ask you for drivers (they are included in the firmware).
