Default [Q] I'm soft bricked. Need a SIM card reader?

My LG G2 D800 is stuck in (TWRP) recovery. I don't have a ROM backup. The rom I was going to load on my sdcard is bad. How can I get a new rom on there?

I assume if I had a phone sim reader/writer I could do it. Don't think they exist. Any ideas how to accomplish this? Thanks all!

(Cant use ADB since phone is in recovery mode)

go to advance and go to sideload then sideload a rom from you computer

Thanks for the help. When I go to "advanced". I start adb sideload. I then plug my usb cord into pc. I bring up a cmd prompt. when I type adb devices it doesn't find it. Is there a special driver or gif needed for sideload?

Before I bricked this I had ADB sdk working just fine.

then find the phone in device manager, right click, update drivers, browse my computer, let me pick from a list, unclick show compatible, find google and pick adb interface driver
