Default noob mistake while attempting to flash to a new ROM

im sorry to be such a noob but while flashing to a new ROM in recovery I made a noob error I put the new ROM on the sdcard and then proceeded to partition the sdcard in 4ext recovery being new to flashing I didn't realise that it would also wipe the ROM from the sdcard and I jumped a step in the guide I was following by then proceeding to wipe the old ROM ready to install the new one which I thought was already on the sdcard doh! so the outcome is im stuck at the bootloader until I can install another O/S ROM on the phone the way im thinking is the only way to do this is with a workaround using skd and adb but im not sure how to work this could someone with a bit more expierence than me guide me through it........once you have all stopped laughing at such a noob mistake



EDIT: solved thanks to the below procedure
