Unhappy Alliance Mods bootloop & other problems! / Resolved!!

After being stupidly led to believe I could flash this "V2.4 STOCK THEMED LSD ODEXED", from this thread here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...php?p=37186930, & having done a nandroid backup, I can no longer use the phone!!
I have no settings/dialler/contacts/messaging now, after restoring backup when flashing the mod resulted in bootloop!
I've tried using Titanium Backup to restore contacts & messaging but it just hangs! I even tried to install the apks from here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=1969991, but they start to install then say not installed!?
What's happened & how can I fix it without having to flash stock rom all over again & lose everything?

You have to make a full wipe of your phone in Recovery mode. Then you can just restore /data partition from the Nandroid backup to keep all your apps.
I also suggest you fully unroot by re-flashing your stock firmware and re-root if any problem persists after trying the option i've written above.

Good luck!

How do I just restore /data partition from backup in CWM? & if it works, can I then restore the whole backup & not have this problem when done? Thanks!

Didn't you try to restore the whole backup already? If you did and it didn't work then you cant restore your full Nandroid since something has gone corrupt.

What kernel are you on?

To restore /data is usually this way but depends on kernel, which is why i asked you
Go to 'Backup and Restore' and then 'Advanced restore/Custom restore job' and press on /data option.

I have 2 backups, & restored both with same problem!
Stock kernel!
Could I not copy both backups to pc, factory reset in settings, re-root, then flash backup!? as both backups (one done today & one last month!) can't be corrupt surely!?

Dude, you can't do much on stock kernel. you can't flash anything from stock kernel.

I suggest you remove everything and fully unroot your device by re-flashing stock firmware (and wipe data/cache etc)
Now flash a custom Kernel and then you can flash custom firmwares.

I don't want different kernel or custom roms/firmwares, thanks all the same!

Well if you want to flash something like you tried to do before - you will need a custom kernel (which includes a custom recovery). With stock recovery you can't do much..

I just flashed latest samfirmware with mobile odin & wiped dalvik cache & kept root in the process & all is good again!
The only problem I've got now , which is one I've had in the past & forgotten how to resolve, is that I kept having a force close with rom toolbox pro, so I uninstalled & tried to reinstall my backup in Titanium Backup, but it just hangs!? I tried reinstalling it again after downloading the apk backup I have on my laptop, but it won't install coz it says there's insufficient space & tries to redirect me to apps manager in settings!
There is enough space (414mb internal memory/8.45gb internal sd/ & 27gb ext sd), as I've installed the light version straight from play store!! Any ideas on this??
Oh & I have CWM recovery.zip for recovery!
THNX!
