Default [q] how to restore stock rom via cwm?

Right now I am running CM11 (I did backup my stock rom when i moved to CM11) but now i willing to move on to Hellcat rom.
to flash this rom, i must have to be on the stock rom, so my question is can i use CWM to restore my backup of stock rom.
or i have to use flashtool then again root and install CWM to flash hellcat.
last time when i tried to restore stock rom via CWM i soft bricked my device..now im confused.
thanks in advance.

Noyou cant restore your stock rom via cwm. You need a zip file of the stock rom that came with you phone.. Its not compulsory that you should always be on stock to flash another ROM. factory reset wipe and flash..
Device : Nexus 4 | Status : Rooted,Unlocked. | Rom : ROM. | Kernel : Hellscore_B46t4

As long as you backed up while you were rooted and had cwm i think that they will be there but if they aren't its not a big deal to re-do them.
If you flash the ftf they will be gone.

I have done it before. Follow these steps.
1. Goto CWM and wipe user data and cache. Also wipe dalvik cache.
2. goto "mounts and storage" and format system, data, cache.
3. Now install your hellcat rom from SD card. Also flash GAPPS and reboot.

Thats it.
