Hi, Kid_droid...

I would think so, yes...

I flashed the update via TWRP... having made a nandroid backup of my current MoDaCo CM 10.1 (JellyBean 4.2.1) based installation first.

Having spent some time with 4.2.2, I then restored that backup without problems. (Although I had to fastboot flash TWRP again - the update wiped it out).

The only 'permanent' (for want of a better word) aspect of the Nexus 7 that the update changes is the bootloader - upgrading from 4.13 to 4.18.

So, yes... flashing 4.2.1 ROMs shouldn't be a problem.

Rgrds,
Ged.

Thanks for putting in your time to reply definitely I will feel more confident doing this.

I'm going to make a back up and get me some update stock 4.2.2

Thanks again.

Re: Nexus 7 4.2.2 JDQ39 update rolling out in USA?
Just to confirm I have updated to 4.2.2 but now back on AOKP 4.2.1 anyways

1. First I downloaded Vodoo Root keeper on my backed up "Stock ROM"

2. Open the app and just Tap protect root.

3. Make a back up of current ROM

4. Then manually flashed the OTA zip using TWRP

5. Rebooted opened Vodoo app again and click restore root.

6. Now you good again but will lose custom recovery.

7. So just download goo manager and then install recovery from the menu on top right and you sorted.

No need on a PC or anything.

If you just stock rooted and have changed nothing or flashed recovery..flow steps 1 and 2 then delete Google framework data..search for update and if OTA shows up run the update then d step 5

Knock at the door? I think that's my Nexus 4 yuuum ready for root !!!!!!

I used CWM instead of TWRP and when rebooting after flashing the OTA ZIP, it asked me if I want to keep custom recovery and restore root, to which I said yes, and I am now on 4.2.2 stock rooted with custom recovery.

Assuming you are on a stock 4.2.1 ROM, you should get a notification of update availability when it is made available in India. Note however that you will most likely lose root if you let the phone update itself.
