Someone told me to flash a .zip of the stock rom on one of the threads on here to achieve that.

I wanted to go back to stock after trying Franco. Then I tried elementalx and my battery life went up so much I don't want to go back.

Flash the system.img and boot.img files (found in the factory image) using fastboot.

If you backed up your phone or made a nandroid before messing around with your phone, that's usually your best option.
I'd personally advise against just flashing without wiping, because the part of the point would be to remove the garbage files, which wouldn't really happen.

You can flash stock ROM and kernel (system.img and boot.img) from the factory image without wiping. While it's okay to go from a custom kernel back to stock kernel, I wouldn't go from a custom ROM back to stock ROM without completely reflashing.
