I somehow have locked myself out but still have access to CWM and FASTBOOT. So, how do I use FASTBOOT to install a rom? Is it even possible? I just flashed CWM again, but still cannot get my CWM Backup copy to work.

My friend has same issue, change build.prop.. no backup, no adb, only fastboot with cwm. Any ideas? Ext SD don't work in CWM\TWRP.

upd: Answer myself - Plug into usb in recovery, update driver in device manager to ADB Device, use adb

No, just the regular zip, you could also try reflashing the recovery (fastboot flash recovery recovery.img).
