Please do some research if you have any concerns about adb sideload
BACKUP YOUR DATA FIRST
1.Download the file and place it on desktop Nexus5.zip
2.boot your device into recovery, wipe everything and connect it to pc and make sure drivers are installed. if not do as follows:
open device manager in control panel and if drivers are already installed, it shows something like ANDROID ADB INTERFACE,
if not,it shows some name with yellow symbol..
right click on it and select update drivers and select browse my computer and select let me pick..
click next > have disk>browse> and select the usb_drivers in downloaded file> open > open > ok
now it shows as ANDROID ADB INTERFACE..
3.In TWRP, select advanced and choose sideload option.
4.open command prompt and change the directory to where you downloaded the file ( easy if on desktop )
to open command prompt: win+r>cmd
for changing directory: cd desktop > cd nexus5
5.Now type adb devices in command prompt and it should show list of devices with your device code name and mode as sideload mode.
if not install drivers again.
6.copy your ROM zip file to the folder 'Nexus5' which you downloaded.
7.type adb sideload romzipname
8.now it starts copying and wait till it shows 100%. after copying it automatically starts installing.
when the installing is finished,it shows reboot system. reboot and njoy
Note: If stuck while flashing rom, hold power and volume down until it reboots to fastboot then go to recovery and repeat the same procedure.
