The most common fix to get RUU working is to relock your bootloader. You can run RUU from fastboot.
Well recovery works perfectly but there is no rom or file in the sd card at all because of the total system wipe, and ADB doesn't seem to detect my phone since it requires USB debbuging (or am i wrong?) and usb debugging isn't accessible since it hangs on the facebook logo. Only when it's in fastboot does it get recognized; but im not aware of a way to push the rom files through fastboot? I would very appreciate a tutorial if there is!
that's why im looking for a system.img that i can flash using fastboot.
And as for the RUU I can't get to the Fastboot screen on the program because it first needs to confirm my phone model and system which it can't because it requires USB Debugging to be turned on on the phone. Also would relocking the bootloader still be necessary even though I have S-off?
About doing the ADB push through recovery to sd card, I don't see any option like that on the menu. I have CWM would I need TWRP for that?
