Well.... let me sum this up real quick
a) akonadi is mandatory in >= Kubuntu 10.04/KDE 4.4 for addressbooks
b) without seeing the report it is difficult what innodb error you had, but you sure didn't fix it, you just rendered akonadi broken at a much higher level than innodb
c) your akonadi is not operational because you very much messed things up :/ ... see, Test 1 includes the whole config of akonadi and among other things there is StartServer=false which later on results in
Database error: Cannot open database.
   Last driver error: "QMYSQL: Unable to connect"
   Last database error: "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/home/anh/.local/share/akonadi/db_misc/mysql.socket' (111)"
 Unable to open database "Can't connect to local MySQL server through socket '/home/anh/.local/share/akonadi/db_misc/mysql.socket' (111) QMYSQL: Unable to connect"

Akonadi usually would start mysqld itself and take care of all the setup
(granted there are no issues, which I must mention is not always the
case), you however deactivated that start and thus akonadi is now dying
because it can't connect to a stoarge backend (i.e. database server of
some sort).

Please refer to ubuntu forums or the kubuntu forums or IRC to get
support on this.

Also, maybe moving .config/akonadi and .local/share/akonadi out of the
way might just nicely reset akonadi (be careful that you do not delete
these files unless you are sure that no data will be lost), after that
you should just need to relogin and setup a new addresbook resource in
kaddressbook or akonadi or the KDE resource configuation in system
