Hello Motorola Moto C owners,
I have ported a twrp recovery for Moto c - namath - xt1754
from Doogee x5 pro, credits for snowcat4pda
Another one from Moto E4 (See second post).

Instructions:
The only way to install a recovery on a device with a locked bootloader is to unlock the bootloader first, so you can unlock it and simply flash the recovery.
Or...
I'm going to show you step by step instructions to flash the recovery WITHOUT unlocking the bootloader or lose any data.

1. Download and extract my ported recovery from here --> DOWNLOAD.
2. Open SP flash tool and load download agent "DA_SWSEC_6737m_98736_71604.bin" - from the previous zip.

3. Load the scatter-file found in the recovery you previously extracted and select preloader only, but don't flash it.
4. Click Alt + Ctrl + V to activate advanced mode in sp flash tool.
5. Click on "window" up there and select "write mode"

6. Change the address to "0x2d80000" and click on "file path" and choose the recovery.img

7. Click on "write Memeory", then Power off your device and wait until it vibrates and connect it to your pc.. wait until it finishes and now your recovery is ready, you can root your device or do whatever you want.

Just remember! Your are doing this at your own risk, I take no responsibility for bricked devices, have fun. :P

Credits:
- Me for porting the recovery.
- Snowcat4pda for building it.
- This guide on youtube that I used as a base for mine.

I have ported this recovery for moto c plus xt1721,
but i get s_security_send_auth_fail when i press vol down and insert cable.
when i dont press anything or press vol up while inserting, i get s_brom_download_ da fail
(i use stock scatter.txt, stock preloader, my ported recovery.img and the download agent you gave)
pls help

Go to Motorola website and get your unlock code, you can't just unlock the bootloader like this!

Did you change the address mentioned in step 6? You have to change it with the right address from your scatter file.

Then I don't know why it is not working for you, sorry.

If your phone is not working, reflash stock firmware.

For the recovery, try another way; unlock the bootloader and flash recovery using SP flashtool normally.

This phone is non-unlockable.
Any other way?

Maybe @rudi021 can help you, he owns Moto C plus and had a case which may be like yours.
