/sbin/mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.applesetupdone

Oops. Clean install time I fear. As far as I know there's no way of getting this back without doing so.
Archive and Install may still work, so hopefully you have some backups of other stuff.

Pass, no idea, but doubtful. Messing in terminal could make things worse.
