Fastboot boot command allows a Bootable image to be started on the device without flashing it permanently... It can be a custom boot kernel image, a recovery environment (TWRP, CWM, Philz), or other custom image. Having an unlocked bootloader is a requirement to boot an unsigned (meaning not stock) image like TWRP.

  • @AndyYan I suggest you look into unlocking the bootloader without wiping, it is possible in the N4/5 devices... Google can give you that info. – acejavelin Sep 4 '16 at 23:52

    @acejavelin Now that you mentioned it I remember it somewhat. However I looked it up and seems that it requires a booted-up, functional device to use the alternative unlocker, and if that's the case OP would've recovered data from it easily. – Andy Yan Sep 5 '16 at 4:38
