Hikey960 recovery mode fail

Dear All
I want to recovery my Hikey96, reference https://www.96boards.org/documentation/consumer/hikey/hikey960/installation/board-recovery.md.html
I follow the step and download all of the file in http://snapshots.linaro.org/reference-platform/components/uefi-staging/113/hikey960/release/
I use the USB to UART to connect the Hikey960 UART6 TX and TX and use the minicom to display the information.
I step by step as belowe:

  1. Switch the jumper 1 and 2 are ON and 3 is OFF.
    2.sudo ./hikey_idt -c config -p /dev/ttyUSB1
    3.In the minicon type f, when I see “Press ESCAPE for boot options .” and then "Android Fastboot mode - version 0.7.Press RETURN or SPACE key to quit.
    4.sudo fastboot devices and see "1A31E266020ECEE8 fastboot "
    5.type $ sudo fastboot flash ptable prm_ptable.img
    $ sudo fastboot flash xloader hisi-sec_xloader.img
    $ sudo fastboot flash fastboot l-loader.bin
    $ sudo fastboot flash fip fip.bin
    6.Switch the jumper 1 is ON and 2 and 3 is OFF. I will see
    image
    Please kindly help to slave this issue, now I can’t download my aosp to Hikey960, when I type ./device/linaro/hikey/installer/hikey960/flash-all.sh

Maybe try an older release: https://snapshots.linaro.org/reference-platform/components/uefi-staging/110/hikey960/debug/

Or alternatively, use https://github.com/96boards-hikey/tools-images-hikey960
