Yes. As posted earlier in this thread: Nandroid backups are full system images. To restore them, you restore the whole system, so your old ROM. If you want to get the old apps to a new ROM, you should use Titanium Backup which backups only apps and the settings / data of these apps. Afetr installing your new ROM alongside Titanium Backup, you can decide to restore only the apps or the data / settings of the apps as well.

i have another question. My phone was freezing up randomly and I could not figure out the reason. The only thing changed was a new charger for my s5. So, I did a nandroid and titanium backup. I wiped the phone and tried restoring with titanium backup in hopes it would resolve my problem, however, i've been running into problems with titanium backup and am now restoring the nandroid backup. SO, my question to you guys is, if I had a freeze up problem and want to start fresh and keep all my apps and data, on the same rom, is there a difference between restoring with titanium versus nandroid in trying to resolve my previous freezing problem? I really hope one of you guys on here can help me with this, as it's really frustrating me in trying to solve this problem!i have another question.

That's just me tho.
