Autoroot method used.
Depending on the method that you used to root your phone, i.e. CF-Root or some custom ROMs, your hidden flash counter is not triggered and your binary and status will remain unchanged and your Recovery is still the stock Recovery. To flash a Custom Recovery, see the PhilZ CWM Recovery - Dummies Guide
