Question [Q] Can't flash ROM - No OS installed

Hi,

I'm trying to install paranoid rom for galaxy nexus.

I updated the twrp recovery and I checked all this option and then I wiped the smartphone

Dalvik Cache
Cache
System
Data
External SDCard
USB--OTG

now I want copy the .zip rom files into the sd and install it via twrp but I don't know how to copy the .zip into the sd.

If I try to plug the device to computer I cannot see it.

I can access to twrp recovery and explore the file system so I think there is a way to copy some files into the phone.




What can I do?

thanks for help

Do you still able to boot into recovery. Try installing ROM via fastboot

If adb drivers are installed correctly, u can flash ROM zip via sideload

Code:
 adb sideload rom.zip
Also you can push files to sdcard via adb

Code:
 adb push xyz.zip /sdcard/xyz.zip

ok, I solved using fastboot

but I have a new problem now... I can't boot into recovery (isn't this ironic?)


I flash the twrp for galaxy nexus in this way:

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery......

and it seems flashed but when I try to boot into twrp it failed and reboot the operating system


I also tried to flash twrp via gooManager... it says "recovery has been installed" but I get the same problem
