Nandroid backup completely dysfunctional

So I finally took a shot at flashing a custom ROM ( from stock to unified 4.4 ROM). When I attempted to revert back to stock nandroid backup, everything went completely haywire. The radio was disabled and I got recurring process close errors. All I could do was battery pull and flash back to the ROM.

What do I need to make my nandroid recovery work correctly? I'm on CWM if that matters.

Tried it again, this time the radio is on, but otherwise, same result. Did all wipe options five times just to be sure.

I was originally flashing a Pac-ROM 4.4.2, then tried to flash back to my stock nandroid. My recovery is CWM, not Philz. Unless I also needed to flash cache partition too? I thought the factory reset option took care of that as well? I'll try this again.

EDIT: Formatted internal SD as well, same result. Got the same process and gapps errors. I really have no clue as to what other options I have. Perhaps loading up a ROM just to use that Philz recovery?

Yep, PhilZ recovery was the difference maker. I guess I'm done with CWM for good.

Honestly, that was really all it was. Using a different recovery made all the difference.
