If you insist on restoring the backup file do this simple trick on md5 mismatch: open the md5 file in your CWM backup folder, erase its contents. Leave the file empty (0 byte) then restore in peace
Keep in mind md5 mismatch means something changed in the backup file, doesn't matter which device it previously on. Do this on your own risk.
Note: CWM will skip verifying the backup if md5 file is empty.
