Thank for the fast reply. I.ll try and post the result.
The fact is i can restore an old stock backup (mi6), but not the new one (mk4)

It didn.t work, my friends! Nothing!
I.ve flashed MK4 on top of MI6 with mobile odin, clear data, root etc, backup with philz, cannot restore the backup!
The os is working great, but I cannot restore backup. It remains stuck on bootanimation.
I.ve void my knox warranty, so i.ll try everything, as long as it works!

The only thing I can think is something must be wrong with your backups.
Once you restored have you tried to wipe the device? Does it boot fully?
I use phills recovery to restore my device every time I test a new project and have no issues.

Thank you @faria
I.ve tried that too
Restore - not booting - forced recovery mode - wipe data - reboot - boot animation... :(

Try this http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1932327.
If it does not work you may have a partition corrupted, get an official 4.1 rom and a PIT file,flash the 2 files together via odin with repartition checked. Good luck.

thank you for the advice!
I.ve flashed the fixer, flashed philz again and the same problem...
now i.m downloading an 4.1.2 firmware to see what can i do
the problem is ONLY with 4.3 new bootloader frimwares, because i can restore without problem CM roms and MI6 rom
that.s why I thought it was because of the new bootloader, and not because of the partition...

anyway, yhamk you again for your advice. I.ll flash 4.1.2 and post the results

@faria
my friend,
it was bad :)
I tried to flash 4.1.2 with pit: UNSUPPORTED VERSION
tried to flash your rom with PC odin: UNSUPPORTED VERSION
I managed to flash the latest MK4 for my country...
should I flash it with the pit file?

Now I don.t know if I should stay on this without the possibility of restoring a nandroid backup, or just use the MI6 backup
anyway, there will always by CM :D
thank you for your help!
I will watch the forum and I will keep to date

Tried that too, nothing..
Tried to flash the patch on top of mk9, error
Tried to flash mj5 bootloader, error
Couldn.t find the whole mj5 firware but i think it would be unsupported

So, i.ll just wait and hope that some smart people here, like dr.ketan or faria will do some tricks for us with the new mk9 bootloader

Thank all for your help, especially @faria :)

I m sorry to hear that.In another note,if you are in official 4.3 and rooted you should be able to install my rom or a lest any 4.3 rom via Mobile odin.
