OMG I was awake all night lol, but I fixed it!
I did tot for ZV7, ZV8, and ZVA several times but it kept doing screensleep death within 30 seconds after boot up aka there was no time to root or do anything. Then i went back to ZVC tot and initially became frustrated. I couldn't root with my PC, get into stock recovery, or even factory reset. It would simply reboot and never enter recovery. Then after several attempts to root, including manually, I tried it on my Macbook Pro and it worked.
So I'm rooted, using flashify to flash TWRP, followed by pushing zv8_aboot.img, but again I cannot get into recovery when I attempt to via flashify. I keep trying this, along with # reboot recovery, power/vol button, but cannot get into any kind of recovery lol. For the hell of it, I download goomanager, check reboot to recovery and I'm finally in TWRP. Problem is that I don't have EFS stuff on my phone lol, so now I reboot, add it, try again from goo manager and once again I can no longer get into recovery.
I repeated the whole process flashify, zv8_aboot.img, goo manager, and I'm back in. I restore EFS and it restores all of my info lol. It took forever, but I'm happy because it finally worked.
Thanks again for the suggestion jcwxguy! I'm going to go take a nap
