This is my version of TWRP built for the 2015 Moto G Turbo. I don't have the device and haven't tested it myself, but it has been reported to work fine. Using it is a try at your own risk procedure. Your bootloader must be unlocked to use this recovery. Fastboot mode is used to flash or boot this recovery. To enter fastboot mode, turn off your device, hold PWR and VolDn for 3 seconds, then let go.

Differences between upstream TWRP and my fork:
  • My original green theme
  • No SuperSU
  • No TWRP app
  • No HTC Dumlock cruft
  • Updated pigz compressor (slightly faster and more tolerant of corruption)

To temporarily boot this recovery:
Code:
fastboot boot twrp.img
To permanently flash it:
Code:
fastboot flash recovery twrp.img
The download is up on the downloads tab.

Initial Build
I've posted the first ever TWRP build for merlin. I don't have the device, so I don't know if it works. I do expect it to work though. You should be able to flash it permanently and not be forced to "fastboot boot" it as was the case with the osprey TWRP, since I am using a suitable kernel. Please let me know if this TWRP works for you.

If you are feeling adventurous and are running the Marshmallow stock ROM, I encourage you to try my experimental brand new "Squid Kernel r14" for merlin. First make a backup of your current setup, then you can flash the merlin zip from the kernel thread.
