Windows Phone Simple Recovery Switcher version4.1 Download

Simple Recovery Switcher

Must have ROOT and Busybox installed.

This app will allow you to switch recoveries simply. There are two ways to flash using the app. The one tab method will switch between a custom and stock recovery on your sd card and the other way is to flash any recovery stored on your device. Please see instructions below.

To use the one tap method:
1. place a custom recovery on your internal SD card and name it "custom.img"
2. place a stock recovery on your internal SD card and name it "stock.img" (without quotes, case matters)
3. Once they are on your internal card you can just tap "Custom" to flash to custom recovery or "Stock" to flash back to stock recovery.

To flash any recovery on your device:
1. Press the floating action button on the bottom right side of the screen.
2. Select a .img file from either internal or external SD card
3. Confirm yes or no if you want to flash

Note 4 Doesnt support the note 4, sad. Was hoping to use it as a lazy way to get an ota update since kies doesnt work and odin practically bricked my note 4 haha mid way through. But nice concept, seems to work for others. thanks for your hard work.

  • Jan. 24, 2015

Easy I could not believe this worked so easily . I'm using an HTC one m8 with twrp recovery. I downloaded 4.4.3 ota , opened this app and switched to stock recovery and installed the update no issue's. However I'm now trying to switch back to Twrp recovery ( named custom .img stored in the internal storage ) but nothing happens ?? I'm now stuck with stock recovery until I adb which I didn't want to do in the first place , any ideas Dev? Cheers

Works. This definitely works well. I just think that it would be nice if there was a link or suggestions either in the app or in the Play Store description of where to find the files that need to be downloaded to the sdcard folder. Or maybe a quick video tutorial.

  • Dec. 20, 2014

Can it get any easier?? When I first saw the screenshots, the app looks so simple I actually laughed. Perfect.

  • Nov. 20, 2014

Ahead of the game ! Simple & exactly what was needed in this complex android world of mod !

  • Nov. 21, 2014

Does what it says Simple to use

  • Nov. 18, 2014

Just installed it and already love it! I am getting prepared for Android L for GPE to come drop and this will greatly help with other future OTAs!

  • Nov. 4, 2014

Fantastic !!! Works like a charm. Easiest method out there for quickly switching recoveries. This alongside your work with GPE is outstanding. Thank you

  • Nov. 9, 2014

Awesome My father put me on to the app and its so convient. definitely needed something like this!!

  • Nov. 12, 2014

Amazingly easy. Great app. Loved it so much I bought the donate version.

  • Oct. 22, 2014

What can I say.... Getting OTA updates never been this easy. Well... What do you expect from a great developer like GraffixNYC... thanks for the app and keep it up ;)

  • Sept. 1, 2014

Loved it! It's a great utility app. Makes it so easier to switch recoveries!

Sweet, one click Waiting for Android L just got easier.

Great idea Very clever.

  • Sept. 2, 2014

Fantastic... Much easier for getting OTA. Thank you.

Root Hey does it work to root?

  • March 7, 2015

This app saves the day very very useful and tiny app, made flashing custom<>stock recovery a breeze. Kudos to the developer :)

  • May 26, 2015

Doesn't supported the Micromax A76. When this app open it sad your device is not support..

  • May 27, 2015

My device is not supported how sad.. s duos 2 (7582)

  • June 22, 2015

A must have if you have rooted stock rom Best tool to switch between stock and twrp. This helped me to flash the stock recovery and then allowed the phone to install those monthly software updates.

  • Jan. 12, 2016

Convenient. Just please fix the bug where an ad is displayed after leaving the app.

  • Dec. 8, 2015

4+ good one...make easier to install recovery with this app

  • Aug. 9, 2015

Awesome! I could not flash my stock recovery from the floating button. The only way to get the recovery to stick was to actually name them Stock and Custom and use those buttons. Other then that, it worked perfect and now I can back up my entire system with a custom recovery and still get FOTA updates.

  • July 10, 2015

Unbelievable I can't believe I just found this little beauty. The conventional approach is such a time suck. Thanks dude.

  • Dec. 6, 2015
