Hope this works.

Try booting to SAFE MODE and see if any other accounts show up.

And try the old control alt delete to see if you can get the login to show (the old fashioned one.)

Sure hope you had a backup. Taking shotguns (tweakers) to the OS is pretty dangerous.

Good to read you found more doors to try.

This sounds like you found a few more doors to try to get back in.

I'm not saying all tweakers are bad but unless we have a recovery plan if the tweaker breaks the OS, it's best to ignore that title and get our files and system safely backed up.
