Just used Titanium Backup to defrost all the frozen bloatware, slapped that on the sdcard-ext, rebooted into recovery, and installed.

To boot into stock recovery turn the phone off, then hold power and volume down when the words fast boot appear at the top keep hitting volume down until you see android recovery. Then select volume up. It will load a android with a triangle logo. You then hit volume up and down at the same time and you are in.
