Well, I did something stupid and accidentally wiped system without backing up and now I don't have a ROM installed. When I try sideloading a ROM in recovery, I get the verification failed. I believe I am somehow back on android default recovery.

Can someone help me get a ROM pushed onto the device?

Thanks

I ended up going back into download mode and using odin to install TWRP recovery. I guess that doesn't have problems with ADB sideload. Its sending now.. so I will see if it works. Had to do a few battery pulls =\ hope that didnt harm my device too much

TWRP ADB sideload worked. Weird... wonder why CWM adb sideload was having errors
