Default [Q] Stock Nandroid Stuck On Boot

So this has happened to my now twice when trying to revert back to stock...

Starting with a bone stock N5, I unlock the bootloader (I guess technically it was already unlocked the second time I had this problem), then push TWRP over via fastboot. At this point, I do a Nandroid of "stock" and save it. Then I flash PACman ROM and run with that for a bit, one time with the Elemental kernel, the other time with whatever kernel PAC comes with.

So in an attempt to go back to stock due to some LTE issues with PAC, I boot into TWRP, select restore, then choose my original "stock" nandroid. It restores fine as well as I can tell with TWRP, but when I go to boot it just gets stuck on the Google color splash screen (the dots coming together).

Any thoughts on what I'm doing wrong here. I don't have any problem loading any of my PAC nandroids at this point to get back up and running, but I'd rather not have to go to my computer every time to push a factory image.

Make sure you have a good, known working nandroid....then try wiping first. System, data and the caches. NOT internal SD obviously. Then restore. If you have issues still, restore your known good nandroid.

That's worked for me in the past with restore issues.

How do I know if it's a good nandroid until I go to flash it and it doesn't work? Tried it again tonight after making sure to wipe everything in TWRP, but it got stuck on the colored dots splash screen again for a good 20+ minutes until I nandroid'd back to PAC. Do I need to be on a certain runtime?

Make sure you've wiped everything in recovery (data/cache/dalvic)... Then format system.

Now try restoring the stock nandrioid backup and see if it works..

There's no way of knowing whether the backup is good or not. If it had some md5 issues, it would have been displayed on the screen.
