After spending some time on this one, I finally am being able to backup my stock recovery . I am just penning down the steps incase some one intereste....
For Htc one X+ we first need to find the recovery partition . that can be achieved by running the following command from any terminal emulator
with busybox installed.
which will give an output some like this
mmcblk0p5: 00fffe00 00000200 "recovery"
This is the recovery partition block ...
the next step will be to backup the recovery partition in an img format.
1. We need to have root permission in order to read through the /dev/block/ directory. So
su dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p5 of=/sdcard/recovery.img
(su grants you admin access and dd is a common command to backup partitions in Linux)
That's it the recovery partition is backed up on your sdcard..
