May have something to do with adb!
what i know so far- in command prompt in pc adb type 'adb shell'
when you see the $ thingy type - 'cat /proc/mtd' Note: Check if your phone is an 'mtd' somehow...
You'll see several line thingys. find the line saying 'recovery' and see the corresponding mtd number. Example: mtd6=recovery for my phone

Now that u know your mtd number 4 recovery type in 'dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd6 of /sdcard/recovery.img'
it should put the image in the root of your sd or so. this didn't work for me because pemission was denied for some reason

Permission is denied because you did not get root access. The commands should be in terminal emulator (if you don't want to use computer)
Code:
su
cat /proc/mtd
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd# of=/sdcard/recovery.img

Here # is partition number you get from cat command
If you are using computer and ADB, then enter following commands
Code:
adb start-server
adb devices
Here your device should be listed
adb shell
su
Here "$" must change to "#" indicating that root access is granted. Check mobile screen for toast message 
cat /proc/mtd
dd if=/dev/mtd/mtd# of=/sdcard/ recovery.img

 Here # is partition number you get from cat command
Press Thanks if helped.
