Default "adb sideload" Anyone know how to do this?? HELP

So my Android has decided it will not boot into recovery or download mode so that I can put the stock ROM. The only mode it seems to let me go to is "adb sideload<fileload>. Looking it up online I have no idea how to re load the stock rom Any one able to help??

Side loading is a method to install apps that the play store won't install to your phone. It isn't for flashing a rom. That can only be done in dl or recovery, because you aren't installing you are rewriting hard memory.

If you cannot get into either mode you can JTAG your phone for $50 from www.mobiletechvideos.com. They will restore your phone to stock. Takes a week.
