Also, I renamed the AmonRa recovery to, copied to my SD card, flashed it in HBOOT and of course HBOOT said it's in the wrong format. How do I flash the AmonRa recovery now that I'm s-off? Zip the .img file into a file?
correct. take the amon ra image,and zip it up along with the android info text document from literally anything.

the jpbear downloads are hboot-flashable PH98IMG files. you could,in fact,download the appropriate ICS jpbear hboot. unzip it. add amon recovery image to folder. zip the hboot,recovery,and android info document up. when you flash this zip in hboot,it will install your ics patched hboot,and your recovery at one time. 2 birds with one stone

hboot is the screen that you first boot to,when holding vol down and power,from a powered off state. it looks very similar to the fastboot screen that youre prolly a little more used to seeing.

if you dont want to bother moving files on and off your sd card,you can run the files from a cmd window,with the phone in fastboot. directions here: [HOW TO] an easier way to flash PH98IMG files
