I Create Recovery.img/stock boot.img
You don’t have to depend for others or ask for them how to make one ’cause you

since they are not the same in count, you have to add zero on the length, so the
length now will be 0x0123456. We have to add zero just in order to have

the Length, so my Length will be 0x600000.
