Phone How to install a rom only by recovery mode??

Hi, first of all i want to say that i'm new here and i am not sure i'm posting in the right place, if not i'm sorry.

I was trying to fix a problem with my camera app in my Idol X+ (s960), i installed a new one and reboot. The problem is that my phone bocked at the boot image and didn't want to reboot normally. I got into the recovery mode pressing the key buttons. I now want to reset to swipe to factory reset but nothing is working, i cant even install a new rom because there's none in my phone memory (it doesnt allow sd cards). is there a way to tranfere files to my phone without turning it on? because it is impossible i only can access recovery mode...

Thank you very much

Can you access fastboot mode or does your recovery allow for an ADB sideload command?

Sent from my Nexus 4, want to know my current project? Check

I'm sorry, I'm a real noob but can you explain what is fastboot mode and how can I know about the "ADB sideload command"?
I want to say thnk you for your reply!

I found out my recovery allows ADB Sideload and when I choose Bootloader the screen goes black with written at the botttom fastboot. Is it what you were talking about? Nothing happens then ...
