hello guys, or unlocked the bootloader of the moto G5, or tried to put the twrp, nothing to do or tried everything or noticed that if I go to recovery I find the robot with the writing no command, the phone works fine, but at this problem here ... suggestions thank you and good evening.
Download the image

Rename the image recovery.img

Flash image by doing

fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

Once done use the volume keys to navigate to recovery on the bootloader menu and press the power button

Don't not restart the phone before you enter recovery mode

Unless you failed to flash the recovery correctly it will enter twrp

You would need to post a screenshot of your terminal window after you have attempted to flash twrp if you require further support

I was able to install the twrp with the fastboot boot command and dragging images directly, or done the whole procedure and or restarted, but if I want to go to twrp nothing makes me go .... if I go into fastboot mode, and I go into recovery this once the robot comes out, with the volume up and power buttons I can go to recovery, the normal one not the twrp.

fastboot boot is not installing, it just temporarely boots twrp once. For each time using twrp you would have to go to the computer.
Have you tried to "fastboot flash recovery" and then drag and drop the file? works for me...

in summary, I managed to install the twrp, with the command fastboot flash recovery, and inserting the image directly, then or re-flashing the twrp image on the same in order not to risk losing it anymore, the root did it directly with the classic traditional apk application Magisk Manager because from twrp the flash went but the phone was not rooted,
o made a backup to check if the twrp is working properly, it's gone, but o like the feeling that not everything went well.

Remove the spaces from your directory name

Make sure the file recovery.img is in the same directory you are running fastboot from

Eg
If your terminal window is running fastboot from the folder motog5adb make sure recovery.img is also in that directory

Make sure you have downloaded the image correctly


This is the image you need to download and then rename recovery.image

Or don't rename it but change the command to

fastboot flash recovery twrp-3.5.2_9-0-cedric.img

To flash magisk either

Rename the magisk.apk to magisk.zip and flash in twrp

Or install the magisk apk as you normally would when the phone is booted
Open your custom rom zip and extract boot.img and copy to phone
Run the magisk app and go to install and then select your boot.img
It will patch the boot.img and output the magisk_boot.img (filename will be different) to your download folder
Enter twrp
Install and change install option from zip to image
Select the magisk_boot.img and flash to boot

thanks for the suggestions to all, it was a while since I did modding especially on these of the latest generation, it seems that everything works including magisk, now I leave it so let's see how it goes.

Hi, I have a problem with the TWRP installation. After loading twrp image and selecting recovery mode (without restarting the bootloader) I get the following error:
Start Up Failed:
your device didn't start up succesfully [...]

AP Fastboot Flash Mode [secure]
cmd: getvar: has-slot: recovery
cmd: getvar: max-download-size
cmd: getvar: is-logical: recovery
cmd: download: 00e43800
cmd: flash: recovery
Error: failed to load Kernel!
Boot up failed


If I flash an TWRP version 3.1.1-0 all work fine.
What I'm doing wrong?

Thanks in advance

There are two builds / versions of twrp-3.5.2_9-0-cedric.img. The early one is too large (17.13 MB) to flash. The later, smaller one (15.45 MB) with SHA-256 “a47fb...23300” should work.

Did you try updating from within 3.1.1 to 3.5.2? First download the new image to local storage, boot to recovery, mount local storage, select image file and flash to recovery area. If successfully completed, reboot to recovery.

You can't downgrade a bootloader - never try this. You will hard brick your device.
There are some twrp flashable stock android 7 zips if required.

And you can't have an unlocked bootloader if you are attempting to flash twrp and are getting validation errors assuming you are flashing on a moto g5 cedric

Do
fastboot getvar all

And look under secure state to see if it is still oem locked
Also check the build fingerprint is cedric

It says oem_locked and I have cedric in fingerprint. I have errors both when trying to install twrp and when trying to put another firmware (operating system) on it.

I had bricked the cell phone, but I recovered it with the mmcblk0 file on the micro sd. When I put the 7.0 version, the cell phone was constantly restarting so I put 8.1 and now I can't do anything else, it always throws me an error.

I want to change the operating system or put twrp on it to try to solve the problem of not having a 3g or 4g signal. The imei did not erase and I have dual sim.

Your phone is bootloader locked

You need to unlock it before you can flash twrp or other firmware

    A - Yes - as of version 3.4.0-1

    A - Yes on all current 32/64bit roms - If you swap roms you will need to format data first to remove encryption before flashing the new rom then you can encrypt again

    Q - My phone keeps booting to recovery on restart and can only be started normally through the bootloader
    A - First try removing your SD card and see if your phone boots - If that doesn't work see This Post

    Q - It says "image not signed or corrupt" when I flashed image
    A - This is normal as the image is not signed by Motorola

    Q - When restoring backup I get an error starting Extracttarfork
    A - Sometimes you need to format data before restoring backup - In fastboot mode enter the command
    fastboot erase userdata
    This will format all data on internal storage (pictures music documents downloads etc) so backup first!
