Plus in twrp, the theme is applied but I get a super zoomed view of the recovery so I can't restore nandroid as well. Of course, I used my last resort and brought back my phone to stock through odin but the problem is what did I do wrong and what should I take care of to prevent this sort of **** from happening in the future?

Do not mess with something that you are not sure that works on our phone. If you read that someone that has I9070 phone is using something, you can use it. Searching and using stuff from other phones can make you mess like that you got.
Omni MUST use its kernel, you CAN'T use COCORE on it. You will end up with a bootloop if you use COCORE on OMNI.
What you need to do is to flash stock FIRMWARE with ODIN. Download CoCore kernel, UNPACK it and use KERNEL.BIN.MD5 (copy to phone memory). Install UKF
and ROOT EXPLORER
. Open Universal kernel flasher and follow the procedure to install COCORE. Install, reboot and you have permanent recovery (CWM or TWRP depends what CoCore version you choose).
