Default [Q] can't erase/flash custom recovery

I have non-dev Verizon Moto X 4.4.2 unlocked using the chinese method.

I'm in fastboot right now and it says "Device is UNLOCKED. Status Code: 3" if that means anything.

Every time I tried to flash TWRP and I reboot to recovery...it's still the stock android recovery.

I also tried to erase the stock recovery but i get this message:
erasing 'recovery'...
(bootloader) Permission denied
FAILED (remote failure)
finished. total time: 0.094s

My motox is unlocked..so why doesn't it say permission denied and why can't i flash a custom recovery??

please help.

I'm not root btw.

Did you go into TWRP after flashing it?

You have to boot straight to recovery or it gets written over by the stock recovery

You probably hit the power button instead of volume+ the first time around.
