If you're up to flash it, just be sure to back up beforehand. Hope it helps. Envoyé de mon Nexus 7 en utilisant Tapatalk REPLY

You do not have to flash all the partitions; you can pick and choose. First extract the system.img file from the factory image archive, then push it using Code: fastboot flash system C:\path\to\system.img REPLY

There's a light at the end of every tunnel. You just pray it's not a train.

Also @ChiDi9901 be sure you choose the odex version if you want to not have problems while getting some newer OTA. The stock roms are always odexed, just saying.. XD
