  3. Boot device into fatboot mode.
  4. Connect device to PC.

Good luck unlocking a Honor device mate.
You can buy a poco but as you're in a Moto thread I guess you've noticed: we have Unlocking and Flashing guides, sooo... you know... Explains your question. If you still cannot decide, buy Poco F1, I heard they allow the fun without voiding stuff people cry about! :)

About flashing recovery shouldn't it be, fastboot flash recovery twrp.img


Actually fastboot boot twrp.img is used to boot using twrp. It'll only happen once and will leave you stock recovery untouched after next reboot. It just boots the twrp for once. While fastboot flash recovery twrp.img is used to replace stock recovery with twrp.
I think this is the case.

There are some devices that won't let you boot directly like this and others will boot the image in a one go.

Someone correct me if I am wrong.

I'll suggest you to use command "fastboot flash recovery twrp.img" to avoid any problems.

fastboot boot or flash..?

As it turns out, we have a A/B partition setup on moto one power, which means there is no separate recovery and boot partiion.
when we are doing fastboot flash ...| its flashing the boot partion. which in this case will break things, the correct way to do this is
fastboot boot ... and then get twrp installer and take it from there.

Well one way would be to download drm info from playstore
https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.androidfung.drminfo

Or if by any chance you have netflix check for this hd logo
If it checks even after unlocking the bootloader then widevine l1 was not lost heres a screenshot
