I was busy raging at the time.
I am *still* stuck on o2's OS (but 1.6 which works fine instead of the seriously bugged 2.1, which worked "ok" at first and got so buggy that it wouldn't allow me to answer incoming calls) but at least my recovery is no longer broken.
I can't swap back to ATT though due to a "FOTA name mismatch", whatever the hell that is.
The black screen recovery error seems to be caused by the ROM itself. Certain recoveries simply do not work on certain builds. It seems as though pretty much all of them failed with the build I had. However, I found an older recovery (smaller than the rest at 2.7mb) and used that along with a rooted ZIP format (clockwork) version of 4399.
It was really just about finding the right files and the right combination.
I hope I can upgrade to the ATT froyo when it gets here without issue. For now, I am staying with what works.
