    It's a theme. Install over stock 5.0.6.2. Use ROM Manager.

    Because at this time, most themes contain actual modified system apps - that's why they can sometime break things, and that's why you never install a theme for a new version of CM until the theme dev releases a new version, otherwise you might be be installing older versions of some .apks.

    Plus, if you have the stock ROM already downloaded, it won't take long at all to boot into recovery and reinstall the system files.
