Exclamation [Q] Request for backup of the recovery partition

I am looking for a dump of the original recovery partition from an C6903. I accidentally used fastboot flash recovery instead of fastboot flash boot.

Is this partition included in FTF files? What problems could arise if flash mode does not work anymore?

DONATE TO ME
Well, if I know how to back it up I would do it right now.

Maybe tell me how to do it?

As for now, try not to get the phone turned off.
Don't forget to hit the THANKS button! If I helped.

Thank you for offering your help.

I did some research and now I guess flashing the recovery with fastboot overwrites the fotakernel section. So I flashed a fotakernel.sin file out of a
FTF file with fastboot. I hope my phone is now ok Maybe somebody familiar with the phones platform can confirm this?

AFAIK there is no recovery partition on Sony phones. This is what I've been lead to believe at least.
