Default [SOLVED] Stuck at CWM/TWRP/Fastboot...

I made a huge mistake.

I failed to root my phone using this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2155864

I flashed the kernel from the 1st post (Advanced Stock Kernel) BUT forgot to download and save the SuperSU root ZIP file on my SD card before flashing the kernel.

When I reboot the phone, it keeps looping at the Sony logo.

I've only got 13% battery juice left, and I don't want to slip this up.

I can still access CWM/TWRP (the kernel is dual boot) and Fastboot.

I'm looking for a stock, rooted ZL image that I might be able to flash using Fastboot method. But I can't seem find one.

Someone please help. TY.



EDIT:

I was able to find a solution.

I downloaded the kernel from this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2641695
and the flashable ROM from this:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2643900

I copied both ZIP files on my external SD card via a memory card reader, then flashed both files via CWM.

The phone successfully booted.

I hope this thread will provide a solution for others with the same problem.

Luckily, there was still 4% battery left. Whew. Time to charge it up!

You can mount your storage to the computer when you have a working custom recovery as you said and copy UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.93.zip to it using a usb cable.

Then you can flash it
HTC One S @ PAC-man 4.4.2 [ALPHA1] [12/5/2014] + IceCode Kernel v4.0 // HBoot 2.15 - unlocked BL - S-OFF - NO "tampered & warning text" // TWRP mod 2.7.0.8

Samsung Galaxy W @ ParanoidAndroid 4.3 [BETA3] [6/5/2014] + KhaN Kernel v2.0 // Base: I8150XXLMI // PhilZ CWM 6.01.4

"REVIVED" HTC Wildfire S @ CyanogenMod 11(AWESOME!!!) [6/5/2014] //HBoot 1.09 - unlocked BL // TWRP 2.7.0.0


It won't hurt you to press "thanks" if me or someone other helped you...

You can always use Androxyde's Flashtool to go back to fully working Sony stock firmwares!

--> http://www.flashtool.net/index.php

From there you can proceed with rooting.
