You can ignore that "mismatched partition size" error...
It occurs due to the TWRP recovery file size being less than 10mb...
You can either ignore this or buffer the recovery size to 10mb...

Hope this helps...
Ok, will see tomorrow if he has got TWRP as his recovery

Thanks for your reply.

Hi
I am having problems with flashing twrp or Cwm on my dual sim Moto e.
I have an unlocked bootloader and on 4.4.4 out of the box.
The recovery just doesnt load though it flashes fine.
I have read around and seen people talking about downgrading to 4.4.2 for the recovery to work. But a couple of people have successfully flashed with 4.4.4 as well.
I have followed those threads as well but no success.
Could you please help me with this.
Is it necessary to downgrade?
Thanks in advance.
Btw I have asked this in couple of other threads as well so please dont bash me for asking this at multiple places.

Cheers!!

Before flashing TWRP on 4.4.4 firmware, place the SuperSU zip file in your droid's internal storage...
After that flash TWRP and disconnect your device from PC....
Don't boot up your device yet and let it remain in bootloader screen....
After you've successfully disconnected the device from PC, enter TWRP recovery from bootloader and flash the SuperSU zip file...
After that reboot your device and voila, TWRP sticks!!!

The secret here is to not rebooting the device after flashing TWRP...
You've got to remain in the bootloader screen and only after flashing SuperSU through recovery you may boot the device...

PS: You don't need to downgrade to 4.4.2 at all...

Hope this helps and click the Thanks button if I helped ya...
