I'm sure, that he solved the problem already, but for the next time
IMHO it is sufficient to boot with a boot parameter:

linux init=/bin/sh

... and remove the link in /etc/rcS.d to the init script concerning
the problem (after mounting the root filesystem). After the next
normally boot you can remove the package as you described above.
