sorry for the confusion and late response,i forgot about the /0 bit. with the change to 4.2/4.3 the location of the "sd card" changed to data/media/0(from simply data/media) so it is is neccessary to open the /0 folder to find all your sd card content when looking for your rom to flash in recovery,since recovery just opend up data/media.
i assume your trouble re-entering recovery was the inability to get to hboot to select recovery,very likely due to the "fastboot" setting being checked in settings/power.
the "factory reset" option from the booted OS would normally take you to the stock recovery to wipe all data,so thats why you ended up in cw.
for future reference,there are a few ways to get to recovery:
-uncheck fastboot and power off for a few seconds
-hold power and vol down until the softkeys blink and the phone resets
-from an app like "quickboot" from the play store
-from the "power down" menu of many custon roms(wont help if your stock obviously
-from the cmd window:
adb reboot recovery
will boot you directly to recovery
adb reboot bootloader
will get you to fastboot,where you can select bootloader,then recovery
again,sorry for the late response. guess my nyquil took me out sooner than i anticipated
holler if you need anythign else
