    messed up rom update, how do I get back to something useable

    I installed cyanongen's 5.0.4 and everything was ok. I tried to update to 5.0.5 and most of my apps disappeared. I do have a backup from nandroid, from stock, but can't figure out how to restore to it. I have tried selecting nandroid from the clockworkmod recovery 1.7.5 but it tells me that it couldn't open directory. no files found. Any help would be much appreciated.

    If you use nandroid, it will wipe your current ROM and replace with whatever you backed up.

    In addition, if you made the backup with sprecovery, clockwork cannot use it.

    Whats yuour issue with 5.0.5? Missing google apps?

    when you installed 5.0.5 did you use ROM manager and if so did you check off clear cache when updating cause that would clear off everything you had before

    I hate to knock on someone's work but I would ditch clockwork and cyanogen, at least for a little while. I have seen a crazy amout of issues with it on here lately. I hope you can get things working again. If you have a good nandroid back up just run dmupdater to get sprecovery back and run the nandroid. Just remember to wipe data and cache just to be safe.

    I did not clear the cache when I did the update, but once it messed up I figured I just needed to clear the cache, so I tried it that way afterward. At this point I would just like to get back to stock and start over.

    Run the dmupdater and it'll get you back to stock quickly.

    just download dmupdater and follow the instructions

    and idk what problems you have seen with clockwork/cyanogen cause BD is now using clockwork and the new 5.0.5. cyanogen rom is awesome (i use UD and cyanogen) clockwork is much better than sprecovery

    Most of the problems are people not paying attention or reading up before installing a ROM.

    The previous Clockwork issues seem to be behind us now, and its got some dang impressive features now.
