    Your not stuck. There should be an option to bypass the md5 in cwm. If not there is always the stock recovery that is posted on the forum.

    Also did you wipe DS from the phone before attempting to restore. If DS isn't wiped your restore wont work

    Correct wipe everything. It's a good habit to get into. If you don't then issues can arise from prior installations. Apps like titanium backup and nandroid manager can be used to restore most apps from a nandroid to a new install.

    still cant restore stock nandroid. Does it have something to do with the fact that im using a custom rom?

    No it shouldn't change a thing. The data on your sdcard may have been corrupted somehow. You should download the stock nandroid, and flash that.
