My c++ reading skills aren't all they should be, but I note there is a place in there involving multi-user where the coder punted a little bit. Given that 4.2 is potentially multiuser (do you have more than one user set up?), I suppose YMMV.

Take a Android backup before you run fix permissions in the recovery; that way you can always revert if you don't care for the result.

good luck.

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I started comparing the uids as you suggested, but there were just too many. It would have taken ages.
After seeing your comment update, I decided to go for it. I do not have more than one user.
I allowed the OTA update to 4.2.2 (I had flashed back to 4.2.1 stock), rooted and flashed TWRP.
I was still getting the UID error so I did as you said and took a backup in TWRP and then let it do its thing.

- all UIDs now fixed.

Once again, thank you for the help.

Just one last question, because I am a bit confused:

What did you mean by "Probably it is a bit safer to do this via adb in recovery...".
If I put the Nexus in Recovery mode, I cannot connect via ADB. Or did you mean something else?

Has anyone in New England, USA received the Android 4.2.2 update for their Nexus 7?

If so when and how would you rate it?

I also got the notification for the OTA Update. I pressed install button and then Nexus rebooted into TWRP and doesnt perform any update.

After rebooting i found no downloaded File for the Update. And Ver is still 4.2.1...

(Stock nothing Changed)

Disconnect from wifi before clearing the Google services.

Both CWM and TWRP have the "adbd" daemon running by default - you certainly can use adb with either. I suppose this means you just don't have your drivers 100% set up yet.

I haven't checked what CWM recovery does, but TWRP sets up its' adb connection with a different hardware VID/PID (Vendor ID/Product ID) than what Google uses with the normal OS booted. These VID/PIDs are the values that Windows inspects to figure out what driver should be used when you plug a device onto the USB host bus. The Google or Asus USB driver can be fixed up (by editing the driver .inf file to include the VID/PID pair used by TWRP), or I suppose you could use the XDA Universal Naked Driver.

In either case, if you say you can't presently talk to the tab in the custom recovery boot, you should be seeing an "unknown device" in the device manager. Get a driver installed on it!

The "safer" bit was that the /system and /data partitions don't have a bunch of live apps running on top of them in the recovery, so there is no chance of something unexpected happening in the midst of doing file maintenance operations.

good luck.

I assume you have a custom recovery installed? If so, that's why.

Did you undo the tethering and portable hotspot hack? If not, and your system isn't brough back to stock, the OTA update will fail before it starts. If that modification didn't come with a rollback plan, your best bet is to just flash the full 4.2.2 system image.
