I had about the same issue and did all the stuff your doing.
Check in your hboot if it says S-On.
If so then like me you may need to visit the guys in the #firewater IRC channel on freenode.
They ran me through a couple things that didn't work then we all came to the conclusion that my system was write protected.
Something set incorrectly in my mmcblk0p2 caused everything to act as if the phone is S-On.
Finally Beaups remoted into my laptop with the phone connected and ran through some stuff in adb that allowed him to write a fresh copy of mmcblk0p2 to my phone and everything went back to normal.
Sorry I don't know the specifics but it was a couple hours into it then Beaups just remoted in and did it, it was to fast for me to follow.
