What do you mean by usb storage? You can flash your rom by sideloading it under your recovery.

adb sideload rom-name.zip

when u open the recovery go to mount then mount usb storage
it makes ur pc read your phone so you can transfer some files
i used it many times in my old phone " Nexus s "

and I'm using mac so i don't this command will work

I'm also using a mac. if your downloading the sdk from google u go to sdk/platform-tools and theres the adb file.

Next you need to place the rom file in the same folder

then you need to go to your recovery under install from sideload

and then in your terminal

./adb sideload rom-name.zip

after transfering from mac it gets installed directly

that should be tricky trying a rom without installing it.
The only solution I know would be doing a backup before. Then installing it and then restoring the backup.

There should be some other recovery where u can manage your roms. but I cant remember.
