Are you sure you have the full nvflash backups?
that's the issue I think they were on my pc where I had two hard drives fail in two months, shortly after that I had my 32gb thumbdrive go bad.... all three had copies of the backups. Anyway a friend of mine was going to trash his prime because his battery wouldn't hold a charge. He gave it to me and I swapped the mainboards, unlocked, nvflashed and custom rom'd it. My backups are now located on my gdrive, onedrive, dropbox, and asusstorage accounts as well as on my local hd. Had a lucky break this time if not a little frustrating at first.
What I had meant previously was that I unlocked and then nvflashed and then did the updates. It was a bit late for me at the time because I had been awake for a while. Sorry for the incoherent babble.
