I forgot to mention, after I could not get the sideload to work, I got an OTG cable, which does work.

Yes. After I get to the Bootloader, the only place I can go is into Recovery.

I downloaded a file called "UPDATE-SuperSU-v1.86.zip" from a website called "chainfire"; I'd post a link, but I can't do that until I hit 10 posts.
Then I installed it, and it was successful. Then I tried installing a ROM; and it failed again. Then I wiped everything, rebooted, re-installed the SuperSU, rebooted, and tried installing the ROM; it failed again. Also, every time I restart, TWRP still says it is not rooted, and gives the option to root it. I always opt to root it, but it doesn't seem to do anything.
I'm also noticing, when I try and flash the ROM, it does this:
"Updating partition details...
Checking for MD5 file...
Skipping MD5 check: no MD5 file found.
Verifying zip signature...
E: Zip signature verification failed: 1
Error flashing zip '/usb-otg/ROM.zip'
Updating partition details..."
Could it have something to do with this MD5 check? Or maybe this Zip signature verification?
