so recently ive tried again to root my motorola g5s (not plus) and after unlocking the bootloader which took like 5 mins, i ran into a problem, i did get the right twrp img for my motorola yet when i try to flash it onto the recovery like ive been told to, it says img unsigned or corrupted, ive asked in the r/AndroidRoot discord and nothing worked. Not too long after i went online on forums to try and find a way to get this fixed, ive seen that appearently even if it says img unsigned or corrupted, to try "fastboot boot twrp.img" while that did get the phone to boot, it booted into normal Android OS, so next i was told to try to flash a vbmeta.img with the verifications removed onto the vbmeta partition but got this error:
    • (bootloader) is-logical:vbmeta: not found Sending 'vbmeta' (0 KB) OKAY [ 0.165s] Writing 'vbmeta' (bootloader) Invalid partition name vbmeta FAILED (remote: '') fastboot: error: Command failed
      ive taken some screenshots of the cmd window in hopes of that helping to find whats wrong ill attach em(theyre named by me smashing my head against the keyboard because it doesnt work)

...bad news, the battery was replaced... Part of the backlight is ****ed but so little it doesnt matter, yet the entire bottum of the screen with the three buttons, its unresponsive altho it worked shortly after the replacement was finished, now it just stopped working. Idk if its even worth at that point to even replace the screen, really depends on the cost ngl but as of now i put the rooting on ice.
Youll hear from me again soon maybe.
