you can try dirty flashing first, it should be fine. just make a backup in recovery beforehand, just in case.

How do I dirty flash it? I'm still not certain why I can't just run the update file I downloaded as it errors on me.

The dirty flash worked perfect. It seems that is the only file that I need? Since I did the 4xx MB ROM?

I wish Google would make it easy to update while rooted on the nexus phones. I'm only so smart
