Question [Q] XT925 Can't boot to custom recovery

Hello,

I have a RAZR HD XT925 on 4.1.2 GSM.

I was able to unlock the bootloader through the Motorola website, and Root the device using motochopper.

I have tried 3 different custom recoveries:

recovery-clockwork-6.0.4.4-xt925
recovery-clockwork-touch-6.0.4.4-xt925
philz_touch_6.43.8-moto_msm8960
TWRP-2.7.0.0-moto_msm8960-xhdpi

The flashing results always report successful. But when I attempt to boot up the phone in recovery mode, it always goes to the screen with the android character laying on his back with his stomach compartment open and a red triangle with an exclamation point hovering over.

I have to wait about 30 seconds until the phone reboots itself to normal mode and everything works fine.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Thanks!
