Default [Q] Why won't CM11 sideload when other zips will?

I accidentally deleted my phone's internal sd and everything else in TWRP. I've been trying to sideload a zip but for some odd reason CM11 nightly always fails. I have tried sideloading zips with just a .txt file or whatnot in them and they seem to send over just fine... does anyone know why CM11 won't? Currently downloading a 4.2.2 Rom and hoping it'll send over I have a Sprint LG G2.

sometimes it depends on the recovery. For examply when I was installing Paranoid android they recommended TWRP. I decided to give CM11 nightly a chance and when I tried to flash the recovery would say install failed. I flashed to CWM recovery and tried the same CM11 zip and the recovery flashed the zip without any problems.

Oh okay thanks. I'm using TWRP so maybe that's why.

Did you get this straightened out? Are you on TWRP 2.6.3.3? Or 2.6.3.4?

I was on 2.6.3.4. And I solved it, I flashed Philz CWM for the Sprint LG G2 and it worked out fine. I actually preferred stock for my G2 because it has PRL and Profile updating xD.
