This is my version of TWRP built for the Qualcomm based 2017 Moto E4. It should work fine, but 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 available on the downloads tab.

First build released (3.1.1-r1)
I've made a TWRP build using a prebuilt kernel. It's new and not very well tested at the moment. Data encryption support might be broken at the moment, I haven't tested adequately.

Important - Please Read:
This device has dm-verity enabled in the kernel. If you mount system as writable, it will refuse to boot. Do not mount system as writable unless you plan to root your device in a manner that disables dm-verity! You can reformat your data partition as unencrypted with this if you'd like to simplify access for now. You can alternatively access data from an SD card.

I plan to make a better build later once I have kernel sources (and more time). Be aware that the stock kernel probably lacks the f2fs patches necessary to make SuperSU work correctly.

Also, please ignore the duplicate thread I made when trying to troubleshoot a problem with the DevDB download system. I've asked a moderator to delete the duplicate thread.

If it is a Qualcomm variant, yes. If it's a Mediatek variant, no.
