Hello,

I want to know how to pull out the boot.IMG and stock recovery,img from an Android Device? can any one help me?

Your phone should be rooted..! Also you have to have installed adb and your phone's drivers... If you have all this let's begin:
open a cmd in your adb directory and type:
Code:
adb devices   (you should see your phone)
adb shell
su
cat /proc/mtd

find the partitions named recovery and boot and also find the mtd partion number (mtd0, mtd1 etc)
When you find your mtd partition number type:

Code:
cat /dev/mtd/mtd[B][COLOR="Red"]x[/COLOR][/B] > /sdcard/boot.img

Where is x is your mtd partition number
Do the same for the recovery.img :)
Hit thanks button if I helped you... :D
