At this point, I'm just looking for the easiest solution to get a working phone again. I don't really care about losing everything on the phone.
In your first post you describe doing a factory reset from hboot, not recovery... can you access clockwork recovery(it will say clockwork recovery at the top of the screen)?... if you can't you will need to reinstall it through a PB31IMG.zip file then proceed to reflash a rom
Clockwork recovery can be found here:
