Where to find a stock recovery of my grand neo plus

does not go back to stock
Initial situation: Nexus 5 running MMB29S with TWRP 2.8.7.1, unlocked loader, systemless root.
New security update came out and wanted to bring recovery back to stock to try and install it.

Before trying this app, I had attempted to reflash stock recovery from ADB. Flashing is successful but booting into recovery gives me the "dead droid with red message" error.
Booted back into system to confirm it was ok, then flashed TWRP again from ADB. Confirmed TWRP is working and wiped cache, just in case.
Retried flashing stock recovery, same result. Again back to TWRP. So far all with ADB and not the app.

At this point I decided I would give this app a try so I copied both recoveries with appropriate names and flashed. Results are just like the manual case: stock fails, TWRP works ok.

What could be the problem? Has anyone tried it with a Nexus 5 and Marshmallow?

that "dead droid with red message" IS the stock recovery pre-screen. Just hold Power and THEN, immediately, press Volume Up.

My mistake: since a fully stock OTA update does not require special intervention from the user, I assumed the same would apply to a Flashfire-assisted OTA.

Addendum: for some reason I cannot root :/
I'm using NRT 2.1.4, driver installation checks out fine, goes through two temporary runs of TWRP 3.0.0, says "rooting", phone finished booting and... running SuperSU bitches that rooting wasn't done properly.
I chose to keep the stock recovery because of the OTA, by the way.

Anyhow, I'm going off topic.
Thanks again for your help.

Any users of my app want to test a new version I'm working on? I changed some the way it does things and now it should support even more devices. If you use my app and would like to test the new version please shoot me a PM

So I've been thinking. When I first developed this app you were able to take Ota's while being rooted.. Lollipop changed that and now any small change to the system partition will make an OTA fail. Now there is seamless root which works by modifying the boot image. You now can be rooted and take an OTA but you have to flash the stock boot image before hand or it will fail because it was modified by the rooting process. So I was thinking of adding one more option to the app to flash the stock boot image. What do you guys think?
I wouldn't give it an option where you can select any image like I do with recovery, I would simply add a Stock Boot image option to the one tap method.

Here's a post about a problem I discover when trying to update TWRP 3.0.0.0 to 3.0.2.0.
I'm on Moto G 4G (peregrine, xt1039) with stock 5.1 rooted and SRS 4.1.

Maybe it wouldn't occur with the new version you're working on.
If you want me to test it I'm ok.
I'll try to generate a logcat when flashing with SRS
