No need to uninstall nor reinstall if you have already installed the universal naked driver v0.72. All nexus series are there.

Strange. I really have no idea what could be causing that.

These are the things I would check:
1) Are you using the latest version of fastboot?
2) Are you using a USB port on the back of your PC?
3) Are you using 1wayjonny's 0.72 driver?
4) Are you using the correct bootloader file? (I'm assuming you just renamed it for ease of typing -- if that is the case, then ignore this.)

This is NOT meant to replace going through the steps in post #1. They are there for your learning, and should be used as a primary method of returning your device to stock. However, if your USB port is indeed messed up, then you will not be able to use the instructions in post #1.

Warning: if your USB port is indeed broken, and you complete all the steps below, you will have NO possible way at all to unlock your bootloader, or get root, or install a custom recovery. Period.

Note: I have not tested the zip in step 3 yet.

1) Ensure that you have root, and a custom recovery (CWM or TWRP) installed;
2) Download segv11's BootUnlocker app from the Play Store, install it and lock your bootloader with it;
3) Download this file (stock JOP40D ROM, kernel/ramdisk, radio and recovery) and place it on your device; EDIT: New file will be uploaded soon.
4) Reboot into CWM and flash the file you downloaded in step 3;
5) Turn off your device and reboot into the bootloader;
6) Go to recovery and access the stock recovery menu (i.e., when you see the android with the red triangle, hold power and press vol up) and do a factory reset and then wipe cache.
7) Done. Now you are fully stock JOP40D with a locked bootloader.

Link is down it only showed me upload options. Can you please tell me where can I download stock recovery :/

Re: [HOW-TO] How to flash a factory image / return to stock / unlock / root #
@ efrant or anyone else.. I'm on stock ROM on faux kernel with xlouder.. In order to successfully flash 4.2.2 update. Does this seem right?

Fastboot devices
Fastboot flash system.IMG
Fastboot flash boot.IMG
Fastboot reboot

I know that's not exactly the commands but does the procedure seem right? Am I missing anything

If you want ota, you might also add fastboot flash recovery recovery.img just to make sure if you're on custom recovery
