I have unlocked bootloader of my moto g3 6.0.1 and have installed the twrp recovery too but unable to boot into recovery mode. every time I make an attempt to open the twrp it shows no command on my device. I have tried many tWRP files... but can't complete the process.

  • "No command" means you haven't flashed it in successfully. Check your flashing process, and optionally use fastboot boot *filename_of_recovery.img* instead to boot the recovery temporarily.

To successfully flash the TWRP you must enter it at the first time boot after flashing. Otherwise it will be overwritten by the standard recovery and all your efforts will be wasted. Also check this question.

Only first time matters.


To properly flash TWRP on a Moto G 2015:

1) Unlock the bootloader via Moto's official process
2) Copy the latest TWRP image from official TWRP.me site to your platform-tools directory if in Windows, or to your home directory if in Linux
3) Open a terminal window with administration/root privileges and navigate to the location of your twrp image file
4) In the terminal enter fastboot flash recovery twrp.img (replace twrp.img with the actual filename from twrp.me)
5) DO NOT REBOOT - Immediately start Recovery, TWRP should start
6) When TWRP starts, it will prompt you "Keep System Read Only" then Swipe to Allow Modification
7) Select Reboot then Recovery then Do Not Install
8) The device will reboot and TWRP should load and will be "set" as your recovery from now on.

Note, although it is not essential, I do recommend performing a complete backup BEFORE flashing TWRP... TWRP can be booted without modifying the existing recovery or filesystem. Use the command fastboot boot twrp.img and select 'Do Not Modify` then perform a full backup to the SD card and archive it for future use if needed.
