The purpose of this Document is for those who are on CWM and is on BOOTLOOP after modifying some files. You can still recover your device if you can push back the backup files that you modified.
This Document can also be used to access your INTERNAL SDCARD while on BOOTLOOP. Flashable Zip files can be pushed on your INTERNAL SDCARD and then flashed using CWM.

===================

DISCLAIMER: I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE ON WHAT HAPPENS ON YOUR DEVICE, IT IS UP TO YOU IF YOU WANT TO TRY THIS METHOD. IT WORKS FOR ME, IT WILL PROBABLY WORK ON YOUR DEVICE AS WELL, BUT I CAN'T GUARANTEE IT ALWAYS..

Info:
-Use this method if your flare is on bootloop and on CWM.
-Use this method to push Flashable zip files on your INTERNAL SDCARD.
-NEEDS knowledge on ADB to WORK
-Any Flashable Zip Files that will work on CWM, it can be a custom ROM, Flashable Fonts, Flashable build.prop, Flashable Framework files, etc.

Things you need to have on your PC:
-pcdrivers.zip already installed on your PC
-ADB Platform-tools
Reference when mounting your INTERNAL SDCARD:
/sdcard -\-\-> on CWM, this is your INTERNAL SDCARD
/ext-sdcard -\-\-> on CWM, this is your EXTERNAL SDCARD

1. Install your ADB drivers(pcdrivers.zip)
Note: this can be found on your flare, just look for it and install it. Check the file section if you don't know how to install it.

2. Download and setup you Android ADB & Fastboot.

I will be using my Backup_Framework_Flasher.zip as an example that we will use on the following steps. It needs to be placed on your c: drive.

4.
Boot your device on CWM > "mounts and storage" > "mount /sdcard"

Note: it should now appear "unmount /sdcard"

-You can do this method as well while the phone is on boot animation screen(bootloop).
-At times, the android driver is not recognized in CWM and in this way you can still push files, but you will need o manually mount the drive. Alternatively, you can manually select the correct android driver.

From adb shell(within your command prompt)
adb devicesadb shellmount sdcard
5. Open command prompt by going to your "platform-tools" folder then "hold shift key + right mouse click" > Open Command Window Here.

6. Type this commands in command prompt.
adb devices -\-\-> to check if your phone is accesible.
adb push c:\\Backup_Framework_Flasher.zip /sdcard/
