Unhappy [Q] No Rom on phone, USB broken only have TWRP - any fixes?

Hey guys,

The USB on phone ONE is borked - the only thing it will do is charge the phone, it can't communicate with a pc (tried a few, over different cables) and it won't read USB OTG either. I accidently erased the OS AND the internal storage of the phone while trying to fix the usb issue (using TWRP).

So I'm now in a position where I have no OS, no ROM zips on the device and no way to get any data onto the device. Short of sending it away to get the usb fixed, are there any solutions to this pickle?

Thanks for any help!

Default Recovery

Are you able to boot into your bootloader

On your PC or Laptop - reboot the machine. Once booted press the windows key + E. Navigate to your sdk folder and highlight the "platfor-tools' folder. once hilighted (single mouse click to highlight) hold the SHIFT key and left click the "platform-tools" folder. Select open command window here.

On your phone - Power down then Hold the Vol down button and press the power button. Hold both for a few seconds > release the power while continuing to hold the vol down button until the bootloader screen appears.

If this does not work try holding the power button untill you see the Back and Home soft keys flashing. Continue holding the power until they stop flashing. Immediately release the power button and push the vol down button. do not release until you see the bootloader screen.

Select 'Recovery' from the list to boot into TWRP.

Select Advanced

Select SideLoad

Plug in your USB cable

On your PC or laptop copy the viper rom to you platform-tools folder. Now right click the rom file and rename it sideload.zip

in the command window you opened earlier type > adb sideload sideload.zip

here is a link to a sideload thread.

hope this helps.
