A stock recovery and a custom recovery have a lot in common with regards to they both set about giving people all the necessary tools to recover an operating system from any problem efficiently. The recovery mode offers a separate bootable partition by design, so there’s nothing that can stand in your way of booting into that recovery partition and fixing any problem with a factory reset. A recovery partition is also often famous for installing OTA updates depending on your device. In addition to updating the software and restoring the device to its factory default settings, a recovery partition is also useful for carrying out general diagnostic tasks.
That’s about where the similarities end between the stock and custom recovery partitions. Third-party developers have deliberately set about making a new custom recovery for the sole purpose of having more features than the limited stock version made by Android developers. While it’s considered the Android developers have limited the recovery partition on purpose, third-party developers are needing to upload ROM files by allowing for the installation of zip files. They do this through the custom recovery. Moreover, because installing a new ROM requires a wipe and factory reset between flashing, the third-party developers also built in an option for a complete backup solution — one that is far batter than any other backing up solution we have seen to date. The only arguable exception would be the Titanium Backup application, but that too requires people to root a device before it becomes available.
