Unhappy Soft-bricked Nexus 4

I made a stupid mistake and formatted everything. Now my device of course would not boot completely because it doesn't have an OS.
Here's the current situation.
Rooted prior to the incident.
Bootloader is unlocked
Currently has TWRP recov.

I tried pushing a zip file through the toolkit as well but I'm not even sure if it's working or not. Waited for about 3 hours since I saw "Downloading..." status on the fast boot stage but it didn't give me a positive result.

Currently trying to push a file (CM 10.2 ROM zip so I can try to push it through TWRP it it's successful) to the device's /system/ folder and waiting for it to be somehow completed.
Does it really take so long to push a file through adb?
Can you give me a rough estimation of how long i'll have to wait for a 195MB file?

TIA

By now you probably have your answer but a 195 mb file does take a long time. 30 minutes to an hour

Actually, I found the problem. I tried the USB ports at the back of my PC. It worked out fine when I used that. Thanks for the reply.
