Hi everyone, I have problems rooting my tecno c5. I followed every steps but when I finished flashing the TWRP recovery and tried to boot in the recovery mode, it showed some kind of Chinese recovery. So I am asking myself why I can't boot the TWRP recovery I just flashed. Is my tecno a fake one?
Ps: I checked the imei and VC code on tecno platform, it says my phone is genuine.

Please help me.

I know how to boot to TWRP and I saw the progress bar in SP FLASH TOOL and also the green OK button. But it seems that the stock recovery is not replaced.

I did all of this the right way. I also saw on other forums that other people had the same problem. I finally got my phone rooted with KingRoot, but I still need a custom recovery.
