so.... I screwed up & wiped my dna. no recovery img, nothing left on it a side from recovery.

i have team win v2.5.0.0

been trying to use adb sideload to install another rom. my pc recognizes the phone & i get adb running. been trying this method:

going to "advanced" in recovery, then:

adb /kill-server
adb usb

starting up "adb sideload",
adb devices
adb sideload (romname)

every single time, it keeps saying - *failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)' *



anyone else experience this and know how to fix it?



FIXED!!!!!!!!
--------------------------

Rather then do "sideload", I just stayed in 'Advanced' and performed:

adb /kill-server
adb usb
adb push (romname) /sdcard

it successfully copied the rom to the sdcard folder, then I was able to install the rom just fine.

Thanks mate! You just saved my day. :)
I had the exact same problem and couldn't get sideload to work in TWRP 2.7.0.0 on Nexus5. But simple "adb push..." worked.

just wanted to say thanks!

for some odd reason, my twrp (even though its the latest for my nexus7 grouper) had the same flashing no status error)

used the kill, usb, and push commands to copy over 3 different zips (rom,kernel,gapps) and it all copied over ready to flash

thanks!

This does not work for me. Firstly, I tried installing Cyanogenmod by putting it on my internal SD card, then booting to recovery and installing the zip, and this did not work. So I tried to sideload it and got the error " * failed to write data 'protocol fault (no status)' * ". I don't know what to do. I've also tried the same with Paranoid Android but I get the same errors. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I'm sorry, that's a bit confusing.
So are u suggesting to "sideload" by:
adb /kill-server
adb usb

starting up "adb sideload",
adb devices
adb sideload (romname)?



Waiting for your response.
