Default If you're on 4.3 Rooted, HELP!

If you're rooted and on 4.3, download and open up the terminal emulator app

then run this code and upload the .img file that comes out, make sure you run root privileges

dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p18 of=/mnt/sdcard/recovery.img bs=4096
I'll need this to create a stock 4.3 recovery flashable through odin

The result of the 'make' command:
-Sitting bored in front of the computer
-Watching abstruse output scrolling upwards too fast to read
-And waiting for something to go wrong

Do you mean the update.zip?

If so, it contains a patch. You could pull the older ROM's oem recovery, apply the patch, and then you'd have the new recovery partition image.

If you mean a full dump of a TW 4.3, then yes, too.

Did you get this thing made? Perhaps it would help people in my position. I am not to worried though because kies sees my phone but fails to update it because of the whole 4.3 bootloader and its trying to install 4.1.2. So one way or the other it will probably get fixed I just don't want to wait for kies to have the 4.3. Could be weeks for all I know.
