How to Install Custom ROM with ADB Sideload!

When most of us flash custom roms or mods we usually do it by downloading the rom zip file onto your device, then going to TWRP recovery and flashing it that way. However, what happens you accidently erase your system partition and you don’t have an external sd card installed or nandroid backup? Well luckily you can also flash a custom rom on your android device by using the adb sideload feature on your custom recovery.

  1. This video was really useful . I accidentally formatted my os on android and i wasn't able to copy the boot file into my phone .

  2. This could potentially allow you to root your device without tripping Knox on a Samsung device. “adb tcpip 5555” allows you to use ADB on your device without needing your computer until reboot. Using it on a root package like Magisk, then that’s flashing without using Odin: flashing without tripping Knox: fully reversible root.

  3. Cheers Bro. Helped with twrp not decrepting so installed sideload the orange fox and decrepted successfully with devices password. 🙂

  4. Lmfao I haven't watched more than the first 10 seconds of the video but you already got a good chuckle out of me. You were really nervous and couldn't pronounce anything right. You sounded like you were having a stroke LOL but I have no doubt this is going to be a great tutorial nonetheless. You already got a like from me 😉

  5. I named the zip file "OOS9"
    When I hit enter after tapping "adb sideload" , it says "*cannot read ''* "
    Help anyone ? 😀
