Hello all,

I made this over at the GNex forums for a stock GNex 4.2/4.2.1 kernel... here it is for the Nexus 7 for those that accidentally flashed a 4.1.2 kernel or just want to get back to stock.

Flash at your own risk, should work just fine though!

UPDATED: Kernel should work now! Sorry about the bad zip before!

I flashed LeanKernel and then wanted to go back to stock kernel before flashing latest Faux Kernel.

So I have just flashed your kernel but "about tablet" is telling me I still have LeanKernel installed?

If you can overclock then you're still on lean kernel. Either way, I'd suggest a reflash.

It was definetely still on LeanKernel, I tried it twice.

Only issue could be that I was using an older version of TWRP that wasn't updated for 4.2, but it seemed to flash ok.

edit
Ok, tried it again now I have the updated TWRP and the same thing happens...i.e. nothing, it flashes in the normal way but changes nothing.

This is all wrong. The boot.img inside does not match the one from the N7 nakasi factory image and the updater-script is written for the Galaxy Nexus.

Code:
"of=/dev/block/platform/omap/omap_hsmmc.0/by-name/boot");
N7 certainly doesn't run OMAP. Flash at your own risk, indeed.

I urge you to take this down and make sure you know you've got it right before you put it up again. Only saving grace here is you were using the platform by-name method (which just plain won't work on the N7) instead of the actual mmc block names or you could have really messed up some peoples' devices.

My mistake. I thought it would just transfer over. I will fix the link... Didn't realize when I tested it I already had the stock kernel on there. Gimme a minute to fix it!

OK should be fixed and good to go! Again, my apologies!

Please try again... I have updated my zip and tested it by flashing a 4.1.2 kernel, having the device sit at the X for a few minutes without doing anything (to test a non-working kernel) then flashing my zip, and my N7 is back up and running again.

I am still learning about kernel stuff... sorry about any confusion!

Negative. This is the stock 4.2 kernel... I found the stock 4.1.2 kernel on XDA... Should be easy to find!
