Hi, i have a MSI Primo 81 and i want to enter stock recovery, i tried every combination i could but it will just boot the device normally (not all of them, ie: volume down + power). Now there is an option in backup & restore where i can boot into recovery. Also i recently upgraded the firmware, 4.4.2 kitkat. I also did download a manual hoping there is information about entering recovery, no luck

I gathered the following information while i was in recovery:
Android Stock Recovery 3e
exdroid 4.4 kernel

Any idea what combination i could do or something? But i may as well just install CWM or TWRP on it.

I know this is old, but I just got one of these refurbed for cheap-

Just install ROM Manager (by CWM IIRC) from the Play Store. It has an option in it to reboot to recovery and it works fine; I just tested it on the 4.4 firmware.
