Flash kernel which has the ability to mount sd card in recovery. For example, TWRP recovery in AOSX has that ability. From there on you will be able to flash any rom zip.

I have some confusion regarding ROM installation. The usual step to install rom, for eg is
Quote:

How to Install:
1. Download the ROM
2. Extract boot.img and flash it
3. Copy the ROM to your SD Card
4. Boot into recovery
5. Wipe data, cache, dalvik cache, and system
6. Install the ROM
7. Reboot

in the 3rd step i copy ROM to my SD card, and when i run 5th step wont it delete the ROM that i copied to my SD on 3rd step? How can i install it as it says on 6th step if it gets deleted at the end of 5th step?

thanks

because it doesn't get deleted that way, it won't wipe internal memory (or in other words, our virtual SD card), you will ipe data, cache, dalvik cache, and system
