Thumbs up [HOW TO] Flash recovery from phone.

HEY FOLKS,

This THREAD will GUIDE you to flash recovery.img from PHONE.

I found many of the people found difficult to flash recovery via FASTBOOT and TERMINAL EMULATOR by using CODES.

Here is a SIMPLE method to flash recovery from phone through app.

STEPS:

1) Download recovery flasher utility.apk
download link

2) install the recovery flasher utility.apk file.

3) download your preferred recovery.img

4) copy the downloaded recovery.img file to sd-card and place it in ROOT of your sd-card (Don't keep the file inside any folder because the app may not recognize the file)

5) rename the downloaded recovery.img file as recovery.img(all in lower case)

6) Open the app and flash the recovery by pressing the "install recovery" button (Please be patient, wait for the complete flash, wait till you get the display "reboot into recovery")

7) done!!! enjoy your new recovery.

(note: this method worked very well for me, app flashed recovery within 2sec, and i am not responsible if it wont work for you or anything is messed up.)
hit if this guide was helpful.
