I won't go into the specific's of how it happened, but suffice it to say I performed a comedic string of errors on a scale that would make the most stoic individual laugh or cry at my utter stupidy.

1. Get back SPRecovery so I can load my backup, and pray I can get either clockwork or droidmod to re-root my phone.
2. Find a new update.zip file with the proper root in it to properly reapply root, then get SPRecovery back and retreive the backup.
