No I understand the terminology, I guess when I say Restore I mean I'm flashing a TWRP specific nandroid backup folder of a ROM, and when I say flash I mean flashing a .zip of a ROM.

This is only because theyre two different types of files I'm flashing and I'd think one of them would work

I completely factory wipe b4 changing or restoring any ROMs.

I'd try to flash again, but this is my daily driver and I'm afraid it won't restore (I don't want to reinstall all 200 apps, takes too long). I do have a recovery.log from when I was trying flash earlier (I just don't remember what I did but I know there's a fail in there somewhere) if anyone is able to read that and maybe see where it fails, I included it below.

Also, anything new in cm11 that means I can't install a 4.3 or earlier ROM without using Odin?

Thanks!

Just tried to install a custom kernel, it failed too.

Also just for reference, after it failed many times, I went into Odin and repartitioned the phone with its .pit file and stock 4.3 tw, so yeah... Really confused what could be broke, since I've literally formated and flashed everything on this phone again

Thanks again!

Based on that Recovery log, 2 things you need to know.

1. Please turn off MD5 checking.
2. Rename the Rom zip file from .zip.md5 to just .zip
