Tutorial HTC One Mini (No OS/Data wiped) HELP!

I need some help, I'm a total noob at all this stuff. So basically, all what I wanted to do is root my phone. So I unlocked bootloader, installed twrp, had super user and everything but while I was on the twrp menu rather than hitting the install button I hit the wipe button then accidentally (really) confirmed wiping. Now my phone is completely wiped no OS nor data, at least it boots up but the booting up loading screen stays there forever. I can also get into the bootloader screen but for some reason when I try to install twrp again it doesn't install, there's like that small green bar at the top right of the bootloader screen it only does half way 50% and never increases. I'm really hopeless, lol. Please help, what should I do? How to install HTC's One mini OS from scratch without having any problems?

Did that too with my HTC One M7UL once upon a time. You can push files to your device, when it's in fastboot, via adb fastboot. So push a system/zip to your device and flash it in TWRP, when you get there. As long as you can do adb in fastboot, there's hope for you!
Good luck

Hello, put your phone out by holding the powerbutton till it is really out.
Then hold volume up and the powerbutton, this will get you to TWRP.
Now you can use ADB sideload to push a rom to your phone by using adb.

Thanks for the reply really appreciate your help, but when I try to push a file using cmd it says ''error device not found'' What could be causing this error to happen and how to fix? Thanks again.

It's a good idea to update the drivers for the phone, if you don't already have that. Btw, that's the HTC syncing program. Try the command: adb devices. That will show connected devices.
