help! I upgraded Xuntubu 12.10 to 14.10 Utopic Daily build BY Mistake

I accidentally added a line of source for Utopic to sources.list. And later my system can't get into GUI. While trying to fix the problem I accidentally typed in command sudo apt-get update and sudo apt-get upgrade. So tragedy happened: my system was upgraded to 14.10 utopic daily built! which I don't want! what's worse, becuase it was upgrading from 12.10 to 14.10, a lot of dependency can't resolve, and many services stopped working. The worst thing is, I still can't get into GUI. What should I do for this circurmstance? I'm a newbie in Linux/Unix. Thank you very much!!!

Best practices for reinstalling Home folder when upgrading to latest Linux (Ubuntu 10.10)?

Linux filter: I'm backing up my Home folder and preparing to upgrade to the latest Ubuntu flavor, 10.10. Presently running 10.04. I want to keep my settings for apps and reinstall my extra PPAs. Do I simply copy my old Home folder back in or do I have to do something special so I don't destroy the new install? [more inside]
