[Q] TWRP 22.214.171.124 installed on HTC One, mistakes may have been made; no ROM on SD card
Hello, everyone, I'm in a bit of a bind here.
I own an HTC One on Sprint's network and have decided tonight to finally root it. I unlocked the bootloader and successfully installed TWRP Recovery v.126.96.36.199. (downloaded from here: http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7wls
) I ran into a bit of an issue, though, when trying to install Paranoid Android (Which I had downloaded from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...hp?t=2315236);
it was saying it couldn't mount my sd card. Note that the HTC One doesn't have any external storage, so it meant the internal one. And it also said something along the lines of "some symlinks failed," my apologies that I can't be more specific.
Anyway, I had my phone all backed up (Important files such as photos, audio files have already been backed up with Dropbox, so no concern there) and I read that it was a problem with TWRP after version 188.8.131.52. So I tried to install that recovery, but it didn't stick. So I tried switching to Clockworkmod Recovery, which I downloaded from here: http://www.clockworkmod.com/rommanager
. I scrolled down to HTC One (Sprint) and selected the classic 184.108.40.206.
All was well, I backed up again, until I tried to install PA again. I had the same basic issue. Long-story short, in between the switching recoveries, I had forgotten to restore my data before I switched recoveries, so I lost the backup and I'm 99% there is no OS on my phone at the moment.
I've heard that I can, using TWRP (which I flashed back to), sideload a ROM onto my phone to flash. I tried this, however it had be check that my device was attached by typing "adb devices" in the command prompt (open in the folder where adb.exe is), and no devices are listed.
It appears that there's a loading bar on my phone when i click ADB Sideload, and it says "Starting ADB sideload feature...", however, nothing seems to be happening.
Any help would be super greatly appreciated, and I'm sorry if I left out any information.
Rooting my old Moto Droid was easy, but something was bound to get messed up i guess
