Hello:

I am in need of a stock recovery for 4.06.651.4 as I want to update my stock+ 4.06.651.4 to the OTA 4.06.651.9 update. I have stock recovery .img's from previous versions but not for 4.06.651.4.

Currently, I just flash the 4.06.651.4 unmodified firmware then apply the OTA 4.06.651.9 update. Following that, I flash twrp. This method works but seems/is kind of a waste of time.

Q - Where can I find a stock recovery for 4.06.651.4?

Q - Is there a tool/method to create a "stock recovery.img" from the installed unmodified firmware? I am willing to write one.

Q - Does anyone know if older versions of the "stock_recovery.img" are compatible with 4.06.651.4?

Thanks in Advance...

Sprint HTC ONE unlocked / S-OFF
4.06.651.4 (stock)
twrp 2.7.0.1

You can pull the stock recovery from the full firmware zip.

Thanks for the response!

I tried that ... failed with a "bad header" message which lead me to believe it was encrypted. Believing what you say, I grabbed a copy of 7z and voila, problem solved and I now have a stock recovery for 4.06.651.4.

I have retired my WinZip tool.

Again, thanks

Can you post the recovery here to make it easy for the rest of us?
