    Hello,

    I'm not a n00b, but I did I totally n00bish thing and in my excitement, I forgot to move over the ROM zip to the SDCARD before wiping in TWRP. I have the VZW G2, rooted with recovery installed. I tried to ABD sideload, but I may be using an outdated ADB? Since I installed that ADB when I had my GNex.

    How can I get my ROM zip over to my SDCARD or sideload from ADB?

    I tried using: adb sideloard romname.zip
    Error says: "cannot read 'sideload'"
    Ugh.

    Help.

    In twrp you should have option to flash from internal or external storage. I would look on the internal.

    In TWRP I think you can mount USB OTG. Stick a ROM and a USB and try and flash it that way.

    And you don't side load a ROM. It would be adb push command: "adb push ROM.zip /sdcard/ROM.zip"

    Edit: After you boot into recovery select mounts and storage. Plug phone in and make sure sdcard and system unmount. Then issue adb push. Unplug, wipe, flash, reboot.

    As night it took me ten minutes everytime I had to boot into recovery using the buttons only. I had no way to get online and figure it out and it was a pain lol. Gotta boot into the factory reset mode and go through there. As for your problem, there is also the Power + Volume up command thst takes you to what appears to be an Odin(ish) method.
