so it seems changed root login's shell to /usr/bin/bash which doesn't exist. now I can't login to root at all. Oh yes, sudo isn't installed. How would you grand masters of FreeBSD fix my embarrasing mistake.

Boot into single user mode, then vipw the password file and change it back.
Just as a note of warning, if you have any issues with your ports or libraries, you have a high probability of having issues with bash in the future as a shell. For example, I used to set my root shell to bash, before I had an issue with some missing libraries after an upgrade--which caused a great deal of grief, in particular when I went into safe mode as it couldn't load the shell properly. From then on I have used csh as the default shell, and then switch to bash when needed.
