I'm trying to get back to stock recovery. Currently I don't have access to a PC. A few days ago, when I tried flashing the recovery.tar file via Odin, it failed. How can I get back to stock recovery? I have the recovery file in both formats i.e. .img and .tar. Any help will be appreciated.

My Device : Galaxy Tab 4 SM-T531 Android 4.4.3 Stock

    By "don't have a PC" do you literally mean you don't have access to a desktop or laptop computer, or do you mean you're using a Mac?

  • Provided that your device is rooted, you can use various apps to flash recovery without PC. Notable ones are Flashify and Rashr

  • @Firelord I tried flashify but It didn't worked. After flashing with flashify when I reboot it boots into download mode saying couldn't do normal boot.
