Exclamation [Q] I have deleted the OS with cwm recovery and dont know how to get the OS back help

HELP!!!
I was trying to get all the files that are useless of off my sd card so i formated it in clockworkmod recovery and did not realize that i just deleted everything on the sdcard. And since i was just so clueless i went ahead and formated everything else that i could and then when i tried to reboot my device it takes me straight to the hboot menu. Is there any way i can get my OS back on to my device, i don't care about my files i just want the main OS back so i can use the phone again. And if you need any extra information please just ask in the comments and i will give you any info i can.

Thank You

If you can get to your recovery, go there. Then flash your ROM of choice.

From the bootloader, choose recovery. If that is not an option, choose either fastboot or bootloader (whichever one is there), then choose recovery. If you don't have a ROM zip on your sdcard, mount the usb storage on your computer. Download the ROM zip on your pc, then place it on your sdcard. Unmount, then follow the instructions in the OP of your ROM thread, namely by flashing the zip. Then reboot into your new ROM.

If you have a bad sdcard, you can either transfer them to the internal 8gb memory (not sure, it's been awhile since I've messed with my inc), or you should really just get a new sdcard. You don't want a bad sdcard to start filling up with possibly corrupt app data and mess up the ROM.

Note that internal 8gb memory does not mean the sdcard. Also, I'm not saying you can do this, because I can't remember. But if your sdcard is bad, you should replace it.
