Reboot into recovery. Wipe data/factory reset. Restore your backup. Reboot into flashmode and flash (with FlashTool) the kernel (kernel.sin only) from your .tft file (without wiping anything). Reboot.

I will build for both versions, but I can only test the device variant I receive, so I hope both will work.
The images are ready, but I won't upload them without trying them out.

The variant we received is the WiFi version, so SGP311 and codenamed pollux_windy, I noticed you have pollux in the first post. Pollux kernels do not boot on pollux_windy and vice versa

FYI: You linked the CM unlocking instructions from pollux, not from pollux windy -> https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Devices/pollux_windy
The correct unlocking link for windy is: http://wiki.cyanogenmod.org/w/Install_for_pollux_windy

cheers
