Default Downgrade to older bootloader / rom

I think that my nexus 7 became more and more slow when installing new android updates. So I want to give it a try and flash a 4.1 rom, just for curiosity.. I can find older roms but I can't find older version of bootloaders. Is there any dedicated thread with older downloadable version of bootloaders? Can I extract those from factory images?
So far I learned that to downgrade I have only to flash an older bootloader and then the older rom. Is that correct? Thanks for the help.

Yes, you just need to flash bootloader, system and boot images via fastboot.. To get them just download the full 4.1 factory image from the official website
