I tried it install a new ROM and something went wrong. When it went wrong it went wrong. I lost all my backups and everything. I can get into TWRP right now. If I try and reboot with out going to TWRP I am just stuck at the white HTC screen. So I think the boot is messed up.

In searching looks like I will need to sideload via TWRP a new ROM to load. I can not find a good DIY for the sideload. I turn on sideloading and my PC sees my phone and loads it as a E drive. I an not get into my phone. I am searching through a lot of posts but with out luck. Just people saying they did it with out saying how.

Thank you for any help.

4.4 roms need latest twrp to be flashed correctly

either twrp 2.6.6.3 or 2.6.6.4

So download and flash latest version and flash the rom again.

OK how do I get the files over. I just found my OTG cable!!! Going to see if I can load on a zip. If not is there a good DIY for how to sideload.

http://goo.im/devs/OpenRecovery/m7/
http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7ul


From fastboot

fastboot flash recovery openrecovery-twrp-2.6.3.3-m7.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader

in custom recovery, either
adb push <name of rom>.zip /sdcard/
or
adb sideload <name of rom>.zip

Set the device into ADB sideload mode. In TWRP you do this by going to Advanced then ADB Sideload.
From the command line, type adb sideload rom.zip

flash latest twrp (I assume here you hame the m7_u or m7_ul not a wls variant):
http://techerrata.com/browse/twrp2/m7
Code:
fastboot flash recovery <name_of_file>.img
fastboot erase cache
fastboot reboot-bootloader
then push the rom:
Code:
adb push <name_of_file>.zip /sdcard/
and install from twrp

or adb sideload it:
select sideload in twrp
Code:
adb sideload <name_of_file>.zip
