Drivers for "AOSP on Hammerhead"?

EDIT:
Scratch that. I found them and I am about to try the commands

EDIT 2:
Grrrr, I get a /sbin/sh: pm: not found
I tried downloading the Android SDK manager but can't get over this...

Well, I finally fixed it! Thank you jd1639, you've been VERY helpful.

To sum it up, after failing with the adb commands, I used the file browser at the recovery to copy the frozen velvet.apk to system/app. Then I booted my phone and while it was stuck at the booting animation, I called my phone and that gave me access to the taskbar. Then I unfroze the original velvet.apk in /system/priv-app and deleted the one in /system/app

I'll be sure to double-check what I freeze next time!

Well I am told to be resourceful when needed! But I couldn't have done it without your help!
