That's odd. I was able to get ADB working after being the first to lose it soft brick. It does ONLY work in the Android tools folder from my SDK directory now. So I was able to push the System folder from the update bin & then just reset so the permissions were corrected on factory reset/boot.
The factory fastboot cable is, well, let's say odd. It doesn't want to recognize some commands, even flagged as fastboot -i xxxxx. Maybe they went standard fastboot commands, no flags, but they sure wouldn't let me flash a modified insecure kernel.
On the good side, it seems like adb being turned on survives the reset once you root & rw the system partition. Hopefully you can get it to work, I thought for sure I was toast a few times already.
