I have 9.4mb and 16mb stock recovery.

There are many 9.4mb links in xda and 16mb was from Sprint forum.

Mine is 1.29.980.17 and it seems like 9.4mb doesnt work on mine..

Anyone know recovery differences? And also how to extract recovery from RUU or nandroid backup?

Thanks

Sprint recovery isn't for your phone. Find the 1.29.980.17 recovery

Don't know if u still need this but to extract recovery from RUU you need to check hidden files in folder options.

Then you need to open ruu, leave it running like this.

You can then go to temp folder "C:\Users\Errol\AppData\Local\Temp" and you'll see a folder similar to one like this {6EA884E0-4A88-48EF-A485-666625A12F24} Open and scroll down till you find rom zip, Copy and paste to c:/ drive. Now you can close ruu. Open rom zip and you have all your files. With my evo 3d I could rename rom zip to PG86IMG, download to sdcard on phone boot into bootloader and would flash my phone back to stock. HTC One may be similar too!

It's a great plan but it won't work ...the rom.zip you extract is encrypted and you won't be able to open it. you can however download a decrypted ruu.zip and extract the files you need from it.
