I think I can piece this back together,
and I will continue to share any solutions I find.
Thanks for all of the info you have shared so far.
O.K. folks, we have a winner! The solution was as simple as I thought. No, really. all I had to do was find a clean copy of the Image.
BLU_V0310WW_V8.1.04.04_GENERIC__T2350 was the file that made everything work. When extracted, it is called CSW1703BA_2307_T2350

I did not use SP Tools, because I am an idiot, and could not get them to work. What I did was reload Recovery.img through ADB,
then I rebooted to recovery. Somehow my unlocked bootloader stayed with me, thankfully, Then again from ADB I flashed boot.
Again, reboot to recovery, and flash both System, and Vendor from ADB and reboot to recovery.
For my final trick, I went a little crazy and did a wipe and factory reset, and reboot.
Wifi, back on.
Bluetooth, back on.
Battery indicator, no longer stuck at 1% and throwing constant alerts.
Bluetooth Sharing , no longer crashing every 2 seconds.
I think I will wait a little while to root this bugger again.
Thanks for all the help, and like I said, hopefully this will help someone else suffering from a bad flash.
P.S. and here is the real news My second SIM is alive again, so this has worked to DOWNGRADE back to the pre Verizon update.
Yeah, this build is dated 27/10/2018, so I guess the Best Buy phones can be made to work with GSM networks, however, I did not flash the radio, so, you might want to do that as well if you are shooting for T-Mobile or some such.
Good luck guys.
I haven't found much on here about the BLU VIVO xi+, so I thought I’d start a discussion thread about it.

Dual SIM US, Carriers
I love this phone. It's my first venture into the non carrier locked, non pay as you go phone. After spending nearly a week with it, I can honestly say I've have never had a better phone. Yes, I've owned some very crappy phones by comparison, so we'll get the disparaging remarks out of the way. I've read the reviews and people's negative comments, but I've also seen some very positive reviews and positive user reviews on YouTube. Those reviews and a promotional email from Amazon helped me pull the trigger on this phone.
I'll post again as I gain more experience with this phone.
BTW I checked for updates the day I got it and a 500+ MB file downloaded and installed. I kind of wish I had waited, it'd be nice to know what issues might have been fixed
