Try making recovery.img and boot.img backup through SP-FlashTool, then use MtkDroidTool to patch both imgs.
1: Open MtkDroidTool, connect your phone, click on Blocks Map button.
2: Write down 9th and 10th (9th=bootimg, 10th=recovery) row's Scatter and Size and click on Create scatter file button.
3: Open SPFT, click on Scatter-loading button and select that scatter file.
4: Click on Read Back tab, then click on Add button, then double-click on added item in listbox.
5: Set filename to boot.img, then change Start address to 0x(9th-row's-scatter/bootimg's-scatter) and Length to 0x(9th-row's-size/bootimg's-size).
6: Repeat 4th step, but this time set filename to recovery.img, then change Start address and Length as recovery's scatter and recovery's size.
7: Unplug phone from PC and remove and re-insert battery in phone (don't start phone)
8: Click on Read back button in SPFT, then plug in usb in phone.
9: After read back is done, take out cable then open MtkDroidTool, then select root, backup, recovery tab.
10: Tick To choose the boot.img file and click Recovery and Boot button, then select boot.img and recovery.img.
11: Copy scatter file and open MtkDroidTools folder, go to recovery and paste it there, then rename *_boot_patched_*.img and *_recovery_patched_*.img to boot.img and recovery.img.
12: Open SPFT and then select scatter file in recovery folder and flash boot and recovery.


Nice thread,helpful for creation of CWM in many mtk based devices.:good:

Hello,
First thing is your phone is Samsung Galaxy S4 (GT-I9502)
Second YELLOW light indicates that your phone is ROOTED but not permitted to MTKDroidTools.

'to use from phone' and 'backup' options only available when you grant permissions to MtkDroidTools by clicking on ROOT button (at bottom-right)
first use Backup to backup data from phone, then 'to use from phone' will be available for use.

or read this if ROOT button works:

if ROOT button doesn't work then read this:

First thing is make recovery.img and boot.img backup through SP Flash Tool, then you should try flashing cwm patched recovery.

Vig vanx, I am sorry, I never compiled ROM or Recovery,
but I think you should see these:
Official Port Tool: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1825722
Increase recovery partition to 7MB (yuweng): https://www.mediafire.com/view/?7humxw5eb99404u
