I have a rooted Samsung Galaxy S5, (SC-04F), and unfortunately there was some error when installing a new ROM. Now, it only boots into recovery mode.

I am trying to connect by USB so I can copy over a new ROM file, but, the device will not connect to either my Ubuntu or my Windows computer.

The only available connection option in the recovery mode is MTP. I can successfully connect Odin, and I even successfully flashed a new recovery mode from there.

The one thing I can't seem to do is transfer files. Is there any way I can access the disk on my phone in order to transfer some files to it?

While in recovery, connect your phone to PC and you can transfer files to and from phone using ADB Commands, provided it is installed in your machine.

adb push and adb pull are the commands to send and receive files.
