@luis4ever

This is correct, you need to fastboot to recovery then flash the phone Rom update.zip. that's the only way for s-on'ers to flash to boot from recovery.

I have been s-off since the downgrade was discovered so I don't know about smartflash but I do use 4ext. And I feel like I'm intruding on wloftus because he has you dilemma figured out, but here's what I'd do. Sorry wloftus.

Fastboot boot "anyrecovery.img" and flash the phone Rom update. You can flash 4ext, cwm or twrp. It doesn't matter that 4ext is installed on the phone, it won't hurt if you boot a different recovery from fastboot. 4ext will still be there when you regular boot to recovery. I've done this many times with twrp installed and fastbooted to cwm.

Edit... You said you reinstalled meanrom, if you had a custom kernel installed to it when u set up phone Rom then the update.zip might not get you back to meanrom. If you had the stock kernel for meanrom then the update should work.

This is what i did:

1. adb reboot bootloader.
2. fastboot boot recovery.img(TWRP 1.1)
3. Install ZIP(MeanROM 3.92 with ziggy)

Should it work? It is installing the ZIP right now

EDIT: It is working. At least i have now the boot animation from MeanROM. It is booting. I promise i wont use Boot Manager again.

Yeah, that should overwrite the boot image that's taking you to miui and get you back to your phone Rom.
For future reference you shouldn't ever have to reflash a whole Rom just to get back to the phone Rom. As wloftus said earlier, the phonerom update just wasnt sticking because you are s-on. I'm sure this can be done with smart flash but I don't know how. Next time just fastboot to recovery and flash the update.

Edit... Dude, boot manager is da bomb. I used it for 6 months with s-on and never had this issue. Just a lil hiccup for you, now you know how to fix it.

Thank you both. Maybe it is time to downgrade hboot to avoid future problems like this.
