    We don't have this yet so I thought I would start a thread to see if we can get one :)

    If anyone has a rooted device with stock recovery, here are the steps:

    In a terminal/cmd on your computer:
    Code (Text):
    1. adb shell
    2. su
    3. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/sdcard/b11_stock_recovery.img
    OR

    In Terminal Emulator on your device:
    Code (Text):
    1. su
    2. dd if=/dev/block/mmcblk0p13 of=/sdcard/b11_stock_recovery.img
    When it is finished you will have a 16MB file in the root of your sdcard called b11_stock_recovery.img. Upload it. Post a link. That's it.

    This is very easy to do and is not dangerous at all (as long as you follow the instructions).

    well, first off to my knowledge b11 doesnt update the recovery. it never touches partition 13 on install, but if it is updating it through the recovery script cant you just pull the file that the recovery script is writing?

    it does something to partition 13 in the recovery script. I have no idea if it's a new version or not. Unfortunately it's a 1.7MB patch, so i can't grab the file from the update.

    i see that this thread was started but i dont see that it was actually done. i used the search option with google to look all over the forum and have been reading randomn links for past hour and still cant find anything that says this was done. im trying to get my wifes phone fully stock no root or recovery to send it in to get a replacement cause the update to jellybean messed up her phone bad. So if anyone did do this could you upload it so i can download it to get my wifes phone fully stock?

    the recovery patch is not really a new recovery... its just a recovery installer at boot. if you want, you can copy the contents of the recovery folder to your system with proper permissions and it will overwrite your CWM at boot... then you can pull it with adb.. but i really doubt there is any difference between the B09 and the B11...

    just use the unmodified stock b11 no root and let it replace recovery on reboot after flashing

    i was not sure if they changed the stock recovery with b11 since i have never seen it. We already have unmodified stock b11 roms that will replace cwm recovery if you let them. That seems like the easiest way to return to full stock.

    yes but this could be used for you... as you could flash this and then pull the recovery in image form... I'm bored I'm just trying to help a bit while I'm waiting for purolator to drop off my replacement.. :p

    It's not that i don't appreciate it but personally i have no use for stock recovery lol. I do the same as you are doing...think of things that may help others and put it together. Occasionally I ask for others to do things that will help others, like grab an img of the stock recovery while they have it available so it can be added to junkies tool in the future. But as you can see, you are the first person to even attempt to assist and for that, I thank you :)
