    I screwed up my phone (MT3G) by experimenting with files through TERMINAL. I'm running the latest Cyanogen 4.2.15.1. The phone works but it's acting kind of flaky.

    In order to RE-FLASH the SAME ROM over itself do I need to go all the way back to step 1 (install CUPCAKE, install recovery ROM etc etc) or can I simply WIPE and RE-FLASH the same 4.2.15.1 ROM over the existing messed up one? Will that "remake" all the file systems and wipe away all traces of my mess? I do have a Nandroid but it's no better than the current load.

    Yes,
    Wipe, reflash.
    Should be it.
    You will have to reload your apps (titanium does a good job of backing these up before you re-flash)

    If you are going to install the same ROM you shouldn't even need to wipe. You can always wipe and do it again if you still have issues.
