Hmmm....i think you forget to flash the latest kernel inside the roms....latest nightly build won't boot if you still using the old kernel build 20140405...after the build PAC use different kernel...that is why your phone stuck on PAC logo....latest kernel has LX logo...

only way: flasching a new kernel. (or flasht your old rom (must be exactly bcuz of kernel))

-download android sdk (just leave all like is & press instal ackages, google usb driver are most important )
-download flashtool & install it & install driver for phone from drivers folder of flashtool install
- flash new kernel ^^

It's great that it's working again, but you are lucky that it was a kernel and not a rom problem. Be sure to always take a cwm (nandroid) backup in cwm to be able to restore it if something goes wrong while/after flashing the new rom
