Mmmmm Ok.. What you got to do is:

Don't try to save your actual system. go and flash your miro with Flashtools using a suitable ftf file (the firmware) for the phone. After flashing it, the phone will be like a new one.. but then, you'll have to ROOT it and install Recovery, I mean CWM... after this, turn of the phone, enter recovery and restore your previous nandroid backup.. make sure that you are using the same Recovery that performed the nandroid, to avoid "md5 checksum mismatch".. Then enjoy!

You wont believe it but you cant do that from XDA app... you only can do it from a desktop PC or using, for example, Opera Mini or other browser from your phone...

I found out how to thank from my xda app which is not premium. To say thanks for some post, click the one below that. Guess that works. Dont know why it happens so, but everytime I did that, it worked
