When I tried installing the .zip, here's what twrp (which I put back on via goo) gave me:
(I renamed the file to update.zip)
updating partition details... Installing '/sdcard/update.zip Checking for MD5 file... Skipping MD5 Check: no MD5 file found. assert failed: check_cid(getprop("ro.cid").

My CID is 11111111 (superCID, as provided by either yourself of modding.my.mind , IIRC)
I'm no coder, but it almost looks like that's where it's seeing a problem? Do I need to go back to default CID for the update?
I'll put the recovery back to stock, o a factory reset, and try again when I get a chance and post the results.
I notice that, despite going stock boot, the bloatware didn't all return. Is that because we failed to succesfully flash the system image?
It occurs to me the .zip could have been corrupted. Tonight or tomorrow (my pc is dead, so I have to use one someplace else), I'll recreate the PL80IMG.zip with the 2.2 images from earlier in this thread using 7zip and try again (it takes a while to redownload that system.img)
