Default Whoops - Assist Please

So in the process of being frustrated with the nightlies I decided to go back to CM10 & wanted to do a complete wipe. I thought I'd be able to copy my CM10 zip back over to the phone & restore via the recovery, so I formated everything. System/Cache/SDCard all of it. Now I can get to my custom recovery on the phone, but I can't transfer the zip over to install it. Because there's not even a stock rom on there, I can't put it in Debug mode. I can boot to the standard Recovery Mode or CWM. All I need to do is get this zip on the phone & I'm golden.


Suggestions?

It sounds like the only solution you have left is to use Odin and flash a stock .tar file and just re-root. Here is a good way to do that seeing as how this OP has removed the stock recovery files so it won't overwrite your custom recovery upon flashing.

Also, as a disclaimer, you assume all risks in following and performing this procedure, but I do not think you will have any problems.

Or that!! I forgot all about that and I have one built into my laptop *shaking head in disappointment at myself*

I'm glad you got everything working for you! If someone doesn't have the option of getting an sd card reader, hopefully my post works out,
