@Stilez if you made your backup on temporary cwm then restore with that cwm. Cm7 kernel's inbuilt cwm is different.

But it would be best to flash stock ROM via Odin then restoring that backup.

For stock base Rom restoration Select RFS ,After process completes do wipe data ,wipe cache ,dalvik in CWM and then hit restore , your phone will boot up with your backup.
Wow. Just exactly what I was after - thank you! Worked brilliantly.

Probably yes I might do that anyway seeing as the CM7.2 kernel is still lingering and boot flash is fail. But at least I can switch back and forth between my original rom (which mostly does work) and cm7.2 if I need to.

Interesting point on the side - my original CWM (5.0.2.6) worked but the one installed with cm7.2 didn't, any idea why?)
