    Sorry if this topic was already made, but I can't find it anywhere... Why do I get this message while using the ADB and fastboot's cmd?

    target reported max download size of 299892736 bytes

    (bootloader) Preflash validation failed

    Hello and welcome!

    Motorola Moto E 2015?
    I'm not familiar at all with the device, but if you could post a link to the root/TWRP installation process, perhaps we can take a look-see and help:)
    The other thing I can do is move this to the root forum for your device...it looks pretty active;)

    Is your boot loader unlocked?

    Are you sure you have an recovery file intended for your particular device?

    First I unlocked the bootloader...

    Then I downloaded a TWRP version made for my device and the Minimal ADB and fastboot program.

    I copied the recovery into the ADB folder, changed it's name to "recovery" (because it came with another name) and opened the cmd in that folder by pressing shift+right click, etc, then wrote; fastboot flash recovery recovery.img

    Then that appears saying that the recovery size exeeds the partition volume :/

    Did the TWRP file download in .zip form or .img form?
