Question [Q] Hi guys - Stock recovery

How does one backup the existing stock recovery, before installing Clockwork or whatever other custom recovery you have?
I'm assuming you can't use Download mode, because that's just one direction, from computer to cell.

Could you maybe use a program like Root Explorer to copy the stock files to the SD card?
If this is possible, how would you package it into a tar suitable for Odin later on?

Thanks guys!

CF Auto Root gives you root and stock recovery. Not sure if thats what youre looking to do?

I thought that was only for rooting your cell, not making a backup of the current recovery code.

I'm on Android 4.3, so I would like the 4.3 version of stock recovery available before I replace it with Clockwork or Twerp.

It really doesn't matter what version of stock recovery you have, they're all the same.

So if I extract recovery.img from Samsung's tar.md5 package, can I just use Odin to load the .img into the cell, or do I need to add a script to it?
