well i finally was able to flash recovery, boot, and system after a reboot of my pc and phone and reinstaling drivers before each flash. now im stuck at the dell logo. ugh...
update: was able to flash to stock 02 1.6 rom. via the link lufc provided (thank you) i guess i'll have to retry flashing back to stock att 1.6 after a few more people have tweaked it and make an update.pkg for it.
