TWRP-3.2.1 Moto C Plus with locked bootloader-[With Guide]

I'm in the same DRAM problem boat:

[EMI] Enable DRAM Failed!

Selected every file correctly, watched every single video and did everything step by step, drivers installed.

May Windows 10 be a problem?,

I can't get the flash tool to work, but can get temp root with mtk-su. I was wondering would trying to flash the recovery from temp root risk bricking anything? Like does the flash tool disable enforcement for verified boot or something like that?

No idea. Sorry.

Alright so I decided to try it out, since I don't really have much to lose. Made a backup of default recovery and then flashed it. It seems to have worked fine, can boot into TWRP just fine.
Command I used in case anyone was wondering.
dd of=/dev/block/platform/mtk-msdc.0/11230000.msdc0/by-name/recovery if=TWRP-3.2.1-Panelli-27022018-.img

Update: looks it will automatically restore default recovery if you let it boot normally? Recommend rebooting into recovery using adb. Sorry if that's really obvious I haven't rooted anything in a long time.

Hello, following step by step all the instructions in this post I always had the same error in my xt1724 which I saw that several have. is the following

ERROR: S_FT_Enable_Dram_fail (0xFCo)
Enable DRAM Failed
Hint: Check your load matches to your target which is to be downloaded.

And to solve it, what I did was only change the scatter file for another that I downloaded from a moto c plus xt1724 stock rom and follow all the other steps of the post and it worked for me, it must be clarified that when loading this scatter file all the options are they mark and the only one that must be left marked is the preloader as the post says.
I am attaching the scatter file that I use.

      [*]2.>>open download tool(file provided in the above link,use provide sp_flash tool only because moto c plus have secure chip,need to authentication file,, so u cant flash through normal sp_flash tool) and load the download agent "MTK_AllInOne_DA.bin" & authentication file auth_sv5.auth from download_tool folder
      [*]3>>.Load the scatter-file found in the provided file.. select preloader only, and select preloader only..but don't flash it.
