imo, it is much easier (and safer) to get yourself an USB OTG cable / cardreader and write your backup to it and flash your roms from it
I use this one LINK
Whats sucks more than eraseing that last backup when you do a full wipe by accident. next to that, when i switch to a complete other rom I always do a full wipe. realy helps the stability of your rom

I'm just writing this from the HTC One...unbelievable
Thanks for your help....I was on the brink of smashing it yesterday!
I've gone through the e2fsck once again and it seemed okay...so I tried to push the rom as it is supposed, so just the zip name and correct order of steps!
I also asked mike1986. for his opinion and he told me that the "freezing" does only look as if it freezes....
A mistake I made was not to wait until the cursor started blinking again when I was pushing the rom over to the device....I didn't notice that there was a running process...no percentage or something!
So I tried again and pushed the ROM again...it took approx 7 minutes and the cursor started blinking again...
The file was completely transferred and so I could start flashing it fr recovery! Worked at first attempt, no bootloop or crashes!
The phone is smooth again..even better than before I dare say....
I've learned a lot, especially from you, Mr. nkk71..thank you for spending so much time on the problems caused by the stupidity of people like me
THANKS THANKS THANKS very much!
yeah, sorry, i should have mentioned that, i should have actually linked this:
List of devices attached
HT34xxxxxxxx recovery <- you are now in recovery
C:\ADB3>adb push Android_Revolution_HD-One_52.0.zip /sdcard/
2990 KB/s (1172224138 bytes in 382.835s) <- yes, it took over 5 mins,
without showing any progressJust to double-check the file is not corrupt
C:\ADB3>adb shell md5sum /sdcard/Android_Revolution_HD-One_52.0.zip
from the OP:
Android Revolution HD 52.0 -- MD5 sum: 2EFF0D37FEC5789B946C43F7DA2C13BF --
==> so all is good :)
-> in recovery, select "install" and install the ROM

It was i typo from my part I ment blk37:
no worries, just pointed it out so the OP doesn't get confused, and adb sideload can install a full ROM with no problems:
in TWRP recovery -> Advanced -> ADB Sideload -> swipe
List of devices attached
^^ now you're in sideload, and can start adb sideload rom.zip
I believe sideload even shows progress, though I've never used it, I prefer push
