Okay now ive rooted my karbonn S5 a week ago and installed the custom rom S5_kitkat flavour... Now I wish to revert back to my stock rom... How do i do that and also while installing the rom i just made a backup in CWM. so is that enough to load the stock rom from the backup zip folder??? Or should i have made a Nandroid backup which i didnt??? Plz reply

Welcome to Android Central :)
What do you mean when you say you made a backup while flashing the ROM? Usually making the backups in recovery IS the nandroid backup. If you made one before flashing the stock ROM, then you can just restore that and you'll be stock, but still rooted.

You go into recovery and hit restore, where you select the backups you made before.
