Default [Q] Recovery question

I just rooted a friend's M8 and included the recovery in the toolkit that said Sprint TWRP I noticed that when I restart his M8, unlike my M7, it just reboots and doesn't offer choices like rebooting straight into recovery. Is there another TWRP that I can flash that will give the menu after reboot?

That has nothing to do with recovery, at all. That's not a stock feature. I assume you're running a custom ROM on your M7?

He has stock on his. We just rooted it. I have Viper on my M7. Probably will talk him into Vipor since Sprint is blocking third party WiFi like FoxFi.

You can get that menu on the stock ROM with GravityBox [KK] using Xposed. That is my exact setup right now.
GravityBox [KK] ---> Power tweaks ---> Advanced reboot menu

Edit: I have a rooted, S-off stock m8. I just haven't updated my signature in a while.
Edit2: Signature has been updated.
