Default Download ROM on a Mac?

I had a bad flash and am stuck. I can boot into safetstrap recovery but I have no roms on my sd card.
I have been trying to download a new rom on my mac and transfer it to the sd card but can't seem to get it right.

I have tried compressing the uncompressed download
I have turned off the auto uncompress option in safari
I have tried multiple rom downloads

Every time I try to flash it fails almost instantly. I know I am probably missing something minor but it is driving me insane.
Tried searching but not having much luck.

So...... how do I download a rom from my mac, transfer it to my sd card and successfully flash it onto my phone?

I guess never mind, not sure what was different this time but I am currently flashing a rom. Been without my phone for 24 hours
