7. Once you have navigated to where your adb is at in command promt type adb devices

8. When you type adb devices, it should show your HTCxxjxihdjiw (whatever yours is) and Sideload which indicates you are set up properly

9. Once you see the above type adb sideload nameofzip.zip



If ADB does not See your device





1. After Download, go to My Computer, your C Drive

6. Restart Windows after all the updates
7. Open Command Prompt

8. cd c:\android\sdk\platform-tools

9. type adb devices, if you see your phone then reboot to recovery

10. In recovery, type adb devices, it should show your device in recovery, as a last resort you can use the adb push command

11. However, if you want to tstill try sideload, click advanced

Thanks for making a thread like this, not sure if it needs to be in development but was definitely necessary for those who don't like to read through threads completely

Sideloading does work but it's not the best method, for any Aroma based roms. (ARHD)(Trickdroid)..etc
Aroma is known to freeze and restart on it's own and everytime it does this you have to recopy the entire rom through sideload all over again.
The way that makes more sense is to just adb push rom.zip /data/media/0
this way if/when aroma restarts /freezes you already have the rom on the freshly formatted Sdcard
and all you have to do is restart the flash, not wait on it to copy all over again.

Of course having a USB OTG with the rom / backups on it eliminates the need for all this.

That's not true. Sideload works just fine, in fact it is still on my phone.

It creates and leaves a sideload.zip file on the sdcard. Aroma freezes when you use the buttons instead of using the power button for going to the page, it also freezes if you don't clear cache before you start.

I am surprised by the number of people that don't know about adb sideload!!
