Exclamation Please Help Tried Updating to 4.4 Kitkat Bricked

Ok so I tried updating my phone that was already rooted on Android 4.3 S-OFF to 4.4 kitkat with sinless rom sense. Transferred the rom zip to my phone, then proceeded to wipe the system and data, as well as davalik cache with clockworkmod recovery. Attempted to flash the rom and it aborted. Tried a few times and nothing worked. Didn't realize till after that my phone had no OS, and now all I can do is enter the bootloader. Can't enter recovery as the phone will enter clockworkmod then abort and reboot the phone. Not sure what to do at this point as I tried one of the guides and couldn't figure it out. If anyone can help me I'd greatly appreciate it. At least I backed everything up on my computer manually and am using my iPhone 4 until I can get this fixed. Thanks in advance.

How do I reflash recovery when I can't access the filesystem? Do I need to setup ADB and connect to my phone via command line to initiate the transfer? Can you link me to a thread that explains how to setup ADB in a case like this? Thanks

You need to reflash cwm. I'll try find a link. But after recovery is working you would have to use ad b to sideload the Rom. Have you tried from bootloader fastboot erase cache?

My biggest issue is being able to reflash clockworkmod. If I could that out of the way, I already have the rom on the phone storage, so I should in theory be able to reflash I'd think.

I don't have the option to delete cache within the bootloader under fastboot

How did you get your One rooted, then?

You need to install ADB/Fastboot on your computer. Best to create a folder directly on C:

In that folder you also copy the .img of the recovery (you need latest TWRP for 4.4 ROMs)

Now, once ADB/Fastboot Folder is set up, the TWRP download is copied into the same folder, you go to your bootloader and connect the One via USB and select FASTBOOT (red letters) and once connected you see (USB)

You open a CMD window (START and type cmd) , in that window you point to the fastboot folder:

cd c:\fastboot (or whatever name you choose as in link above)
fastboot erase cache (enter)
fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.4-m7ul.img (enter)
fastboot erase cache (enter)

you see the commands running in the cmd window

after that you can choose inside the recovery the ADVANCED option and SIDELOAD ADB

I have not done that, so you need to search the forum on how to do that.

Just saw that you still have the .zip of your ROM on your internal storage. So just choose to install that and that's it! Be careful with the wiping option and only choose factory reset or cache/dalvik and never system!
