This may be too late, but it sounds like your eggs were good and were just allowed to get too dry.

I've had good luck hatching Sceloporus eggs by placing them in a deli cup with moist vermiculite. I bury them about 2/3rds of the way in the vermiculite (you want it moist, but not wet, about a 1:1 ratio of vermiculte to water by weight). I put a lid on the container and place it somewhere in the house where temperatures are relatively stable. I crack the lid once a week or so for air exchange and in about two months, they hatch. Temps are usually in the low to mid 70s.

If you're dealing with eggs that may have been rotated, look for the pinkish mass of the embryo and place that side up.
