I have serious problems with my phone, INVALID IMEI, NO SIM, everything is described in my other thread: http://forum.xda-developers.com/andr...7#post58266157
Tried everything possible, but no luck. Now I'm turning back to my nandroid backup as my only hope... But I'm stuck with error :

Checking MD5 sums...
Erasing boot before restore...
Restoring boot image...
Error while flashing boot image!

Backup itself looks fine, it is Online Nandroid v9.52, and there was no errors in backup process (as I can see in recovery.txt) its located in folder clockworkmod - backup. It's made of these files:

data.ext 4

Whats causing this error message, and what can i do about it?
Also in data.ext.4 among others there is nvram folder with these files: md, md2,dm,APCFG,Restore Flag (if anybody knows how to flash it maybe that is solution for my INVALID IMEI).
My phone is rooted, there is custom ROM on it. (MIUI V5 FOR INTEX AQUA I-5 ). And CWM recovery for this ROM. (CWM v5.5.0.4 )
IMPORTANT: Cant connect phone to PC, pins for data transfer are damaged. But can transfer files from PC to Phone - Wifi transfer.

Not so easy without usb connection, there is just one version of stock rom for this phone on the Internet, It is made from two rar files, and as I see It's made for flashing SP Flash Tool. I even tried to make zip file from it, and flash via cwm but no luck, error pops out. Just started thread (http://forum.xda-developers.com/gene...qua-5-t3007603) hoping someone will post new stock rom, until then looking for solution here.

Figured out why my nandorid backup cant be restored, and gives an error "error while flashing boot image". When I made a backup there was no boot.img file in it. (as you cant see below in log file) So I added a file from only stock rom found on the net (that stock Is not made for cwm and cant be flashed via cwm, just via SP Flash Too so I cannot use it). but my logic was that I can borrow missing boot.img and put it in my backup folder). So obviously its not solution.

Log file: (nandroid backup)
Backing up /boot...\c
02:18:25 Backing up /recovery...\c
02:18:25 Backing up /modem...\c
02:18:26 Backing up /system...\c
02:19:59 Backing up /data...\c
02:21:28 Backing up /cache...\c
02:21:30 Backing up /.android_secure...\c
02:21:34 Replacing old backup with new backup...\c
02:21:36 Generating md5sum...\c
02:22:04 Verifying md5sum...\c
02:22:05 Online Nandroid Backup Completed in 3 minutes 43 seconds!

But after this there is no boot.img at all in backed up files as you can see.

Files Backed-up:
"----rwxr-x 1 11264 Dec 8 02:21 cache.ext4.tar
----rwxr-x 1 530526720 Dec 8 02:21 data.ext4.tar
----rwxr-x 1 1024 Dec 8 02:18 modem.img
----rwxr-x 1 191 Dec 8 02:22 nandroid.md5
----rwxr-x 1 553781248 Dec 8 02:19 system.ext4.tar"

Why I dont have file boot.img in my backup and how can i fix it? :/
Someone said that I make another backup via cwm and keep just boot.img in it, then copy my old files in that new created folder , but i doubt it will work cause Im on custom ROM now (MIUI) and i want to restore stock (Andorid 4.2.1).
