You may have seen what ADB Sideload around the forums but have no idea what it is. Since our HOX+ does not have an SD card, it makes things harder when you have to flash a ROM.
Here's a scenario when we need to use ADB Sideload.
1. You accidentally wiped your internal SD and have no ROM on your phone
2. You wiped your ROM and forgot to transfer a custom ROM/have no backups(Nandroid) available.
3, You have none of the above and there is no available RUU for your phone. <----- This is a real bummer.
Here are the steps to load on a ROM
I placed TWRP in my toolkit for a reason. CWM does not support ADB Sideload (as far as I know) and TWRP does.
Boot into recovery manually. Turn your device off and hold the VOLUME DOWN + POWER button together until the BOOTLOADER pops up. Press the VOLUME DOWN button until you have selected RECOVERY. Press the POWER button to get into RECOVERY.
Connect the USB Cable to your phone and computer.
In TWRP, click "Advanced" and select ADB Sideload.
Download a ROM to your computer (if you haven't already done so). Rename it as one word. For example CM10.zip, QX.zip, ARHD.zip, etc.
In my toolkit, under the extras section, press ADB Sideload a ROM. Press "Yes" when it asks you if you are in recovery. Then select the ROM you want to install. It will then sideload it to your phone and flash it.
After it finishes, press the back button. Press Reboot and select bootloader.
Pull the boot.img from the zip file and extract it.
Open my toolkit and press Flash a Kernel. Locate the boot.img and it will flash it.
You now have a ROM on your phone!
Hi, I just managed to wipe my system as well on an at&t htc one.... it does have team win recovery installed....but I think I wiped anything and everything? When I click the adb sideload on phone it says starting adb sideload feature and nothing else happens....

Any help much appreciated...
