So, I decided to use Factory Tools to reinstall 1.8.1 (which also replaced TWRP with stock recovery), and then I was able to upgrade to 1.8.2 with the update.zip at Onyx International. If I can't install anything with TWRP, what's the point of having it?
Same thing here. I am trying to install 1.8.2 and it just gives an error. I tried to go back to the original recovery with the methods mentioned but TWRP is still there. Am I doing anything wrong or is Factory Tools the only way to go back to the original one? (I would hate to lose all my apps...).
If I have to use Factory Tools, could I just flash 1.8.2 firmware directly?

From my experience, Factory Tools is the only way to go back to the original. Sorry!

I didn't try that, but my guess is that you could use Factory Tools and flash 1.8.2 directly. Just follow the instructions as though you were flashing 1.8,1, and substitute 1.8.2 instead. It should work, but no absolute guarantees!

Thanks. I just flashed 1.8.1 and the updated from the update.zip file to 1.8.2. That wasn't too long. What is going to take longer is installing and configuring everything again...
