    I really don't want to brick my phone to be able to try this, but would it be possible to rename the fission rom to update.zip, put it in the sd card and intall it through stock recovery?

    not going to work. ROM is not signed with a signature that bootloader will accept.

    Yes. If you are stuck at M logo, phone cannot reach the moment where CW recovery hijacks the boot process and load the custom reocovery (which does not check signatures)

    I've read that sometimes you can force boot cw by removing the battery at boot and putting it back in right away...

    Why?? Because that's called fraud. Its not a manufacturers defect. Why should you get a free reeplacement for something you did??

    I'm sure you've tried the other methods of turning phone off and plugging it in and trying to get into recovery from there then...
