Persistently Failing at Flashing This

I have been trying all night. I genuinely thought I was capable of this but as far as googling can take me, I can't figure this out.

I've put cm11 on the root of my sd (internal storage)
I got RM and set my recovery to TWRP and went to restore mode
I wiped everything for seemingly no ****ing reason (Backed up the vitals)
I get back to recovery menu and see no option to install zip from sd
I look into this and discover I might just need a different recovery so I get CWM which yields the same result.
I still cannot install zip from sd
Consistently searching fixes and similar threads to no avail
I'm back where I began on a rooted stock rom


wat do

Root of SD for TWRP/CWM is now in the "0" folder. Almost all your files will go there once you leave Stock. So just look for that "0" folder and put the file there.

I'm not seeing a "0" folder anywhere on here.

If you use twrp, you can use the adb sideload option to flash the ROM it will transfer and flash automatically so there will be no need to look for the zip to flash it.
