Edit: Same with all other zips.
Since you can get into recovery (pretty sure CWM is the recovery properly installed in this case) you should just download a ROM and put it on the phone's SD Card (always check md5) and install it through CWM. If he wants stock, at least give him a pretty stock ROM like one from here:

Keep the command line stuff to a minimum and use the GUI of the recovery, that's why they're there.

Ok, I got that BoneStock rom installed. BlinkFeed is crashing occasionally (he's using a different launcher) which is annoying but at least it works. Is there a way to get back to the stock rom from this? What will happen if he tries to do a software update?

Could I flash this?

If you really insist on a true stock, unrooted phone, I'd say your easiest options are either the RUU'ish option you seem to have already tried or you could look to the nandroid someone posted in this forum of his stock setup.
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2725001
Note that the nandroid was made with TWRP so you'll have to replace your CWM with TWRP (hopefully correctly this time )

Personally, I'm a fan so far of the ViperOne ROM while I'm waiting for a stable AOSP ROM. That's entirely up to you though.

He just wants to get it back to bone stock so when he goes and tries again he knows what he's dealing with. It looks like restoring the system partition from that nandroid backup did it. Thanks a lot for your help!
