Can't flash TWRP image on Moto E5+



  • I try to install a custom ROM on my Motorola Moto E5+. To do that, I'm following this tutorial (and check what is said online on the tools used): https://www.getdroidtips.com/lineage-os-17-motorola-moto-e5-plus/ . So I'm at the step where I need to flash the TWRP image, but it seems to don't work.

       $ ./adb devices
    * daemon not running; starting now at tcp:5037
    * daemon started successfully
    List of devices attached
    ZL5225HPHW  device
       $ ./adb reboot bootloader
       $ sudo ./fastboot flash recovery ../twrp-3.6.0_9-0-hannah.img
    (bootloader) is-logical:recovery: not found
    Sending 'recovery' (20972 KB)                      OKAY [  0.851s]
    Writin 'recovery'                                  (bootloader) Image recovery failed validation
    (bootloader) Preflash validation failed
    FAILED (remote: '')
    fastboot: error: Command failed
       $ sudo ./fastboot boot ../twrp-3.6.0_9-0-hannah.img
    Sending 'boot.img' (20972 KB)                      OKAY [  0.685s]
    Booting                                            (bootloader) permission denied!
    FAILED (remote: '')
    fastboot: error: Command failed

    So I try to use the command: ./fastboot flash recovery ../../Downloads/twrp-3.6.0_9-0-hannah.img (I'm sudo because it doesn't recognize my phone without) and I try to boot with the image as proposed here: https://android.stackexchange.com/questions/211996/cant-flash-custom-twrp-recovery-image-on-motorola-moto-g7-power-phone But it doesn't work either. On my phone, it says "Mismatched partition size (recovery)" when I try to flash. And when I try to boot, it just say download and boot and that it.

    Btw, I download the file from here: https://twrp.me/motorola/motorolamotoe5plus.html .

    So do you know what I'm missing and what I need to do? Or even if I'm doing it right?

    PS: when I'm trying with the official guide of LineageOS, it's doing the same:

       $ sudo ./fastboot flash recovery ../lineage-18.1-20220104-recovery-hannah.img
    (bootloader) is-logical:recovery: not found
    Sending 'recovery' (15432 KB)                      OKAY [  0.666s]
    Writing 'recovery'                                 (bootloader) Image recovery failed validation
    (bootloader) Preflash validation failed
    FAILED (remote: '')
    fastboot: error: Command failed
    

    And it's say the same on the phone:

    cmd: download: number
    cmd: boot
    cmd: getvar:has-slot:recovery
    cmd: getvar:max-download-size
    cmd: getvar:is-logical:recovery
    cmd: download: another number
    cmd: flash:recovery
    Mismatched partition size (recovery)
    

    PS²: I'm not sure if it's recognize in the good way, since, when I try the command sudo ./fastboot devices, it's listed as ZL5225HPHW Motorola Fastboot Interface, but I'm not sure that the Motorola Fastboot Interface is good or not?

    PS³: Here are some more commands and the output (I made them under the guidance of @alecxs): So here is the output:

    $ sudo fastboot getvar unlocked
    (bootloader) unlocked: not found
    getvar:unlocked FAILED (remote failure)
    finished. total time: 0.003s
    $ sudo fastboot getvar securestate
    securestate: oem_locked
    finished. total time: 0.009s
    

    So, what I'm understanding is that my phone is not unlocked? How I can do that?



  • Thanks to @alecxs, I just don't unlock the device bootloader correctly.

    I just need to run the command fastboot oem unlock ******** twice. And after that, it's working well.

    Here the command and the output I have done to resolve the issue

    ➜ ~ fastboot oem unlock **********
    (bootloader) WARNING: This command erases all user data.
    (bootloader) Please re-run this command to continue.
    OKAY [ 0.002s] Finished.
    Total time: 0.002s
    ➜ ~ fastboot oem unlock **********
    (bootloader) Bootloader is unlocked! Rebooting phone
    OKAY [ 0.165s] Finished.
    

    So, I run the command twice, and it works, thanks to all of you in the comments.
