What is Stock Recovery?

The Recovery Environment that comes with your Android Device from the manufacturer is called Stock Recovery. Stock recovery can be used to flash updates from a update.zip file, OTA Updates, for factory reset etc.

What is Custom Recovery?

From stock recovery, we cannot flash Custom ROMs, Modules etc. So for this, you need to flash custom recoveries like CWM(ClockworkMod), TWRP(Team Win Recovery Project), CTR(Carliv Touch Recovery), COT(Cannibal Open Touch) etc. Flashing custom recovery overwrites system recovery environment. There is a wide variety of custom recoveries available but from them, CWM & TWRP Recoveries are most popular and is widely used.
