Thought I bjorked my phone and would have to find a way to manually get into recovery (which hadn't worked earlier) or sideload FreeGee :P
I am not on the DU team. But to get the advanced options back, there is an option in developer options to turn it on.
If dev options are not available under settings, go to about phone and click build number about 5 times in a row until it says dev options available.
Then press back and go to dev options, there should be a check box for advanced power menu options.
Then after that when you hold the power button you should see reboot, reboot to recovery, and reboot bootloader as well as the normal shut down options.
Also, sideloading freegee I am unsure of. I know in the past it hasn't recognized AOSP ROMS as being supported, but that can be changed in the build.prop.
There is really no need for it now that you are rooted, unlocked, and have backups. Also make sure you have a seperate backup of your EFS. That's the partition that stores all the phone connection stuff (minus the APNs).
