Default [HELP] - Phone is Semi Bricked

hello all,

I have a verizon lg g2 ( vs980 ) I downloaded a custom rom, went to flash it but it failed. I had already wiped my system and have no nandroid backup on the device.. But I do on my pc. I have twrp installed and I can still access that. I have tried the lg g2 flash tool 2014 but I keep getting error saying server connection timeout. I dont know what else I can try. I attempted adb sideload in twrp it just keeps loading in the progress bar and doesn't stop. but never used it before is it possible to push a zip to the phone any other way? I have adb fastboot for windows 8.1 but I cannot figure out how to get my phone into adb mode in the state its in.

EDIT:

BACK UP AND RUNNING!
How did I do it?
went out and bought a micro usb to usb connector and a usb thumb drive, downloaded xdadebs custom rom,gapps,lgapps.. flashed over twrp and BOOM. now that I was back up and running it was as easy as copying my nandroid backup back to the phone.
thanks to everyone that tried to help me

PRO TIP:
Keep a nandroid backup on phone.

Info 2 Some informations

If you can acess twrp,then connect the phone via usb cable to pc and if you set up drivers corret then you have to have adb mode!
Install sdk tools, a good adb driver,after that in command promp you can sent files via push command!
Here a link to a tutorial of setting up sdk tools
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2229124
Here is a youtube video for adb pushing https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YP1LVOKgwQM

I had similar problems with my g2 i had Twrp installed but coudn't sideload, but if you set up correctly adb then in commnad promp you will have under "adb device" command your phone and has to sad recovery then just simply push the file and good to go......

do you still have the drivers, I have downloaded lg drivers and verizon along with the fastboot files I think needed for adb, my problem is I dont see my device when I check "adb devices" on my pc

I have tried that, my problem is either my phone isnt being detected under adb or I dont have the right driver. If anyone has the correct adb driver please link me.

the error I get is "device not found" also when I enter adb devices nothing is there :/

I think my problem may be with windows 8 I cannot get the drivers to work. Installing win7 on vmware as we speak.

Yep I have soft bricked my vs980 and my nexus 5 probably my nexus 5 worse the g2/nexus 5 are very finicky like a soft bricked nexus 5 can be very difficult to turn on and a g2 can be a pain to get into recovery I have actually bricked everything but download mode not fun you will get yours running in no time
