Default [Q]Restore CWM Backup of StockGB over CM11?

I made that big mistake to force a great upgrade on a friends phone and as always: problems occured and he's not happy, so my last resort is to restore the backup.

The base firmware was a Gingerbread-Stock. I rooted and created a backup with CWM. After that I had to install JB Stock to be able to install CM11 and now I have to go back to that backup.

Is it possible to just restore the backup? Or if I have to repartition/reformat the filesystem, is there a recovery that has that feature?

Thanks.

Well, I'm trying to find an easier way, because I have to walk him through it by mail or skype. :/
