A few thoughts:

First, if you are specifying the rom.zip file in the side load as you did, make sure it is in the exact same directory from which you issue the adb command. Otherwise it'll never find it. Either that or give the full path to the rom zip file.

Second, TWRP doesn't support OTG on Sprint HTC One any more (the 2.6.3 release broke it -- may in the future get a fix, but it's broken now). You can load PhilZ and it will restore your TWRP backup as it supports OTG, and also CWM or TWRP nandroid formats. Also supports sideload, though I've not needed that so won't give any coments on that. TWRP is *great* but being intellectually honest, it's a bit broken on our m7wls/m7spr devices.
