  1. 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.
