No can do. You can't restore the MJ7 bootloader, recovery, or kernel once your bootloader is past MJ7/MK2.

It doesn't matter HOW you got to NC5, if you have the NC5 bootloader you can't downgrade. If you have a NC5 baseband but a MK2 bootloader, yes, you can restore a nandroid from MK2.

Sorry, my clairvoyance skills are limited this week.
