Yeah, that's actually what I'm thinking may be best for you. Since you do have S-OFF, you should be able to just flash a new recovery. Try using the PC10IMG on this post (http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...4&postcount=33
). It'll restore your phone to stock, flash ClockworkRecoveryMod, and leave your engineering HBOOT.
And those errors you got make sense if the root_files directory is not located on your SD card. Is it there?
