Thanks again!

Correct. Sony devices also have this limitation, there is a semi-workaround (where the kernel pulls recovery ramdisk from another location) on those that *in theory* could be done on the old Samsungs... but so few people are working on the old Samsungs that it isn't likely to happen.

Pretty much all GS1s and Exynos GS2s had this limitation. Qualcomm GS2s (Skyrocket/Hercules) had a separate recovery, as did all GS3s and onwards.
