edit my adb now won't recognize my phone even though it did a few mins ago...
I'm frustrated, been trying to access the stock recovery for the past several mins and simply can't.

For me also Stock recovery never worked. Just try to flash CWM or TWRP.
Btw, What toolkit did you use and how did you install the drivers. Please answer these, so that someone can help you better.(Or is it just the 'mac toolkit' ?)
My suggestion: PLZ DO NOT USE TOOLKIT. If you are stuck at some point while using the toolkit, then you'll not know what went wrong and how you can correct it. Do it manually. It is the most hassle-free method. Trust me.
I think that ADB will not work in stock recovery(may be you can boot normally into your phone and then try adb). The thing which you are looking for is 'fastboot'.
1) Restart ur phone (Power Button + Volume Down, i guess) and land in the bootloader and connect your phone to PC.
2) In CMD prompt(or Terminal), type 'fastboot devices'. If your device gets listed here, then fastboot is working and drivers are properly installed. If not, then drivers are not properly installed in your PC. You need both ADB and FASTBOOT drivers. Install them properly.
PS: For MAC, i think the command is slightly different. Something like './fastboot devices' . Please look for the same in this forum or just google it and find out.
3) Follow this guide for flashing CWM and Rooting.
4) For properly installing the Drivers, read " A. Install the drivers
" in the below thread (actually you can read the entire thread
My knowledge is limited to Windows PC, sorry if I am not of much help. Thanks !
