After rooting your mobile install rashr
By this you can backup your stock recovery to your sdcard

What the heck is an Iball Slide? You have an HTC M8? If so, you should never be using any guides intended for other devices. Could cause your M8 permanent damage.

If your device is the IBall Slide, this forum section is specifically for the HTC M8. Likewise, don't do anything here that isn't specific to your device, except at your own risk.

fastboot boot twrporwhatever.img, then flash supersu
2. Boot phone that has stock recovery
3. adb shell
4. su "watch your phone to grant root adb access if you haven't ever done it"
5. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p43 of=/sdcard/recovery.img
6. This will put flashable recovery.img on your internal sd card. Copy this and save it for later
7. "fastboot flash recovery recovery.img" will get you back to stock recovery, "fastboot flash recovery twrporwhatever.img" to flash custom recovery.

Very confused with your steps. In step 1, I install custom recovery twrp and flash supersu? then in step 2, how can I boot up stock recovery while in the custom recovery? Did you mean I need to flash back to stock recovery? if so that should be step 2.

In step 1, you boot recovery without actually flashing it, using the indicated fastboot command. The TWRP file resides on your computer, so its sort of a "remote boot".

Thanks... any other way that I can backup my stock recovery.img without installing custom recovery like TWRP/CMW. The reason why I dont want to install this custom recovery is to prevent the Current Binary status to Custom. hmmm.. i have search al lot but mostly they said about using fastboot. unfortunately fastboot doesn't work on Samsung

Post to the forum section for your device, and see if others there can help you.

You need the stock ROM and stock recovery in order to be able to install future OTAs (your phone is already up to date, so this would only be for future OTAs).

As long as you have a TWRP backup of the stock ROM without any changes to the /system partition (root is ok) you can just use that, instead of downloading a stock nandroid from the collection thread.

For stock recovery, you need 4.16.401 stock recovery.
