I was running on 4.2.2 on cleanrom 1.6 (I haven't done any modding with my phone in well over half a year...). Phone is on MDK. Previously to this I was running on some version of CWM, not sure which.

I'm not sure what went wrong at all. Was it the apps fault? This is what I get for being lazy and not odin'ing the custom recovery T__T. My guess is it wasn't loki'd but I was under the impression that the new philz recoveries would be auto loki'd

How can I go about fixing this mess?

reboot to system and install twrp via goo manager. Or odin the mdk boot.img.
