Use flashify and you don't need adb and fastboot. There was a Google + that explained the whole process.

You can get the Google stock images and extract all the files out. They are tar'd, zipped and gzipped. You need system.IMG for the /system partition, you will also need boot.IMG, and if you want to upgrade your bootloader you will want the bootloader.IMG, if you want to upgrade your radio you will need the radio img
