Init doesn't return the list you think it should because you haven't reset
the value of s.  You've done substitution s /. {0->-1} but this doesn't
change the value of s it just returns a list that you haven't put anywhere
and then returned Partition[s,n].

You need to do s=s/.{0->-1}; inside init 1 instead of just s/.{0->-1};
