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)

Can you help me on this? I am on rooted Samsung Galaxy S2 Stock (Samsung Touchwiz) ROM. I opened Titanium backup and went to "Extract from Nandroid Backup" -> "Selected the Nandroid Backup from which I need to restore the sms". Then I selected "Messaging" from the list and chose to recover "Only Data". It successfully recovered in around a minute's time eith a message to restart the phone. After restart I do not find any sms from the Nandroid backup Please help!

for sms you can use a sms backup and restore app from playstore. its free and works perfectly. no need of root or anything. just copy the backup files to different phone and use restore option.
