When you make the NANDROID backup, what parts of it do you restore after wiping and flashing the new version of the ROM and Gapps? I restored the entire NANDROID and it reverted my ROM version as well, so I'm guessing you're only supposed to advanced restore a portion of it?

in CWM
1a). make a NANDROID (I don't do this step every time i mess up, just the once)
1b). wipe
3. while in CWM, i flash the ROM zip
4. still in CWM, flash the Gapps
5. restore DATA ONLY
6. finally reboot (i don't reboot at any point in these 5 steps)

It boots up with the proper ROM, and it boots up with a data restore, but it keeps saying Android Keyboard (AOSP) has stopped.

You don't use nandroids to restore apps

You need something like TIBU or ROM toolbox to backup and restore USER apps and their data after you reboot.

I had the exact same question when I was first starting to mod my devices. Try this.

So basically, the only thing I did wrong was not realizing that data is not restored through NANDROID. In that case, i can restore the NANDROID, download Titanium, follow that part of the guide, and then follow the wipe and flash steps again, but this time, restore data through Titanium? If so, thanks.

A nandroid will restore everything to the exact state of when you made said nandroid. If you are wiping data to flash a new ROM just flash rom , gapps, kernel ect and restore user apps and their data with the titanium back up linked above.
