Question [Q] restore SMS and whatsapp messages by overwriting file from nandroid backup

FML. related to this post:
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2787908

Basically i can't figure out how to fix the phone so i'm going to flash back to stock and start from there.
all i really need to do is restore sms/mms/whatsapp chats

i was able to make a nandroid backup of phone state. it looks like data partition is in a tar gz file that i can extract files from.

My question is, can I just overwrite the mmssms.db and whatsapp database files to restore?

(restoring whatsapp messages from nandroid manager has failed miserably)
