Exclamation [Q] help, i screwed up!

hi all,

Ive been looking for a fix for a straight 10 hours now and i just cant seem to find it.
Ive tried installing a custom rom on my rooted Samsung galaxy s3 mini (i believe its the i8190)
i installed CWM recovery and tried installing the custom rom through there and when that not succeeded i tried it through the CWM recovery boot thing. after messing with it i found myself locked in the CWM recovery boot cause everytime i reboot my phone it instantly goes to the CWM recovery. i found out thats due to not having a rom (not even the stock). so now i have to find a custom rom (wich i allready got) and put that on the phone. this is where im stuck. i dont have an external sd card in this phone and i just cant seem to mount the internal sd card so i can access it through my computer so i can put the files in there.

Im sorry if i placed this in the wrong section, im new to this forum. i just need some professional help because i obviously have no clue wth im doing. also sorry for any misunderstandings or stupid questions. english is not my native language.

thanks in advance !

sorry for second post, dont know where to get an answer nd im desperate

Search Custom Recovery, Root, ROM etc.. with your device name/model. hope, you'll find some solution/ideas about your problem.

You need to set up adb. adb should work while in recovery. You would use that and push the file to your internal storage. For example:

adb push /sdcard/

Assuming you have the rom zip in the adb folder or have set adb to work system wide.
