How To Port Custom Recovery To Any MediaTek{MTK} Device

How to Port Custom Recovery
Why to install a custom recovery?
A custom recovery environment will do the same things as the stock Android recovery. However, it will also have additional features. Custom recoveries also have the ability to create and restore device backups. Custom recoveries allow you to install Custom ROMs. ClockworkMod even offers a “ROM Manager” app that allows you to access many of these features from a running Android system — this app requires a custom recovery installed to function properly.

How to port custom recovery?
First of all your Android device should be rooted to do this. To know if your device is rooted or not, download Root Checker from the Google Play Store. To root your android device, you may prefer the Ways of Rooting post.
Download TWRP/COT/PhilZ or CWM on your PC from any Mediatek device with same screen resolutions.
Make sure you have your stock recovery. You can get it with a ReadBack or MTK Droid Root and Tools backup.
Extract the above tool in one folder.
Put the image recovery in the
"recovery-resources"
folder folder which has extractedtools.
Same with the case of Custom Recovery.
Now open the folder of stock recovery folder and open aramdiskfolder in it.
Copy these files:
meta_init.project.rcmeta_init.rcueventd.rcmeta_init.modem.rcueventd.goldfish.rcfstab.xxx
Open etc folder and copy
recovery.fstabfile too.
Now replace these files in the Custom recovery with the same directories.
Now go back and copy these files fromthe main folder in which you have your stock recovery’s extracted ramdisk and kernel files:
kernel
Replace these files in the Custom Recovery too.
Now go back to the main folder where you extracted the tool and locate output folder
Done!!!
