[guide] - how to solve soft brick when no system on phone
I have seen this pop up a few times now and also people getting others to solve it by adb side load etc. The process is a lot more simple AS WE HAVE THE GIFT OF AN EXTERNAL SD SLOT!
if you are in the position where you have inadvertantly wiped system in recovery without having a backup or rom zip on your internal sd then follow the steps below:
1, if you can boot into recovery, great
2, if you have an external sd with card reader for PC, great
3, power phone off and take out sd, put the sd in a micro sd adapter (not so micro sd anymore hey!!!) and then put this in your PC to copy across the rom file, drag and drop or copy and paste is fine, hey its a free world!!!!!!!
4, re-insert sd card into phone and reboot into recovery using power and volume down and in hboot screen go to recovery.
5, to make sure, do a full wipe of system, data anc cache/dalvik cache
6, flash desired rom and reboot
7, should have worked and saves time not messing around with adb sideloading
Sorry if this is a statement from the department of the blindingly obvious but I have seen this pop up loads and its a much simpler solution than adb sideloading
