Here's small guide about ClockworkMod Recovery / Team Win Recovery Project feature "ADB Sideload".

The example is done with TWRP but the basic idea with CWM is pretty much the same.

Required tools for uploading:
- Samsung Galaxy S3 mini with CWM/TWRP recovery
- Android SDK -> DOWNLOAD FOR OTHER PLATFORMS -> installer_r22.3-windows.exe
- Desired ROM to be installed, in this example it's DMod V6

The steps:
1) Install the SDK, start it and select "Android SDK Tools" and "Android SDK Platform-tools" and then "Install 2 packages"


2) Locate the "adb.exe" file that was installed with "Android SDK Platform-tools", It's usually in "C:\Program Files (x86)\Android\android-sdk\platform-tools". I decided to copy the "platform-tools" folder into c:\ and renamed it to "adb".

3) Copy the ROM you desire to install in the "adb" folder

4) Boot the phone into recovery, and select "Advanced":


5) Plug the USB cable in

6) Start "Command Prompt" in Windows (Start -> type in "cmd" to search box and select "cmd.exe")

7) Type: "cd \adb"

8) Type: "adb kill-server"

9) Type: "adb usb"
HTML Code:
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
restarting in USB mode
10) Type: "adb devices"
HTML Code:
List of devices attached
sh3d7h3dj631f6a7        recovery
11) Select the "ADB Sideload" from the phone, swipe to start


12) Type: "adb devices"
HTML Code:
List of devices attached
sh3d7h3dj631f6a7        sideload
13) Type: "adb sideload DModV6.zip"

Wait for the upload to finish and you are done! Have fun installing DMod V6



WAIT! There's this error with adb:
HTML Code:
error: closed
1) Cancel the "ADB Sideload" from phone, return to "Advanced" menu
2) Read the guide again from step 8 and obey them!

Sideload might not be option for that because that is stock recovery.
Looks like you have lost atleast your cache partition, you might need to use Odin and reflash the whole phone again with PDA option.
