Talking [Q] Restore from nandroid

I've upgraded to 4.4.2 kitkat from 4.3.2. Prior to wiping and reformatting, I made a nandroid backup of everything including system. Now, in restoring, do I include the "system" that I see listed or will that muck up everything?

Thanks

If you include system it'll flash your old ROM back. And when you restore data of one android version over another not everything will work right sometimes. It's best to use titanium backup instead.
