This is a good effort, but being unable to restore the overlay is a deal-breaker for me.
Also, the mouse orientation at the login screen (not the lock screen) is incorrect, which makes shutting down a hassle.
So if I'm not restoring a /data nandroid, I can just flash a new rom, correct? Or does restoring the /data nandroid actually contribute to "reformatting" the partition?
I was able to do so without issue.
I ran into that problem and fixed it by Odin-ing back to stock and starting over. Sorry. :(
However, you might be able to just get an older version of TWRP and just flash that over Odin.

Try data/local instead...see if that works. I like the boot animation.....kinda goofy and fun.

For any who are wondering, the boot animation was stored in /data/sys-parts/media. Thanks for poi...
I used Titanium Backup to remove the extra keyboard app that was added.
