I have downloaded the 4.2 update zip and installed the update using CWM. As expected I lost root and CWM in the process. Then I used the toolkit (3.8.2) to re-root and install CWM. The problem I'm having now is:

1. Root does not seem to work, apps like Titanium Backup do not get root and when trying Root Checker it says the device is not properly rooted.

2. When trying to boot into recovery, I'm getting the Android with the red triangle.

The device still starts up fine. My question now is how do I fix the recovery and how do I get the N7 rooted properly?

[EDIT]
I've flashed the CWM-SuperSU file from here using the temporary flashed CWM. Now I have full root. The recovery is still giving me the red triangle though.

Thanks for your help..

I had the same issue and had to downgrade the boot loader to version 3.34 to be able to flash CWM sucessfully.

I did a full, new install of android 4.2 then 1-clicked my way to freedom. Yes, I lost everything in the process but it was time for a good cleanup anyways.

I fixed it by flashing CWM but then instead of rebooting into Android going into recovery. In CWM I disabled the "stock recovery on boot flash" and it works fine now. Booting into Android and using Quickboot to get back into recovery works perfectly fine now without changing the boot loader.

Now I have the stock recovery and the OTA appear for me but when I try to install the n7 reboot normally but the android Droid appears with a red trinagle I cant upgrade. Anyone know which problem I have?? I only have root and 720p trick.

I have exactly the same problem, what I did was, use the toolking and installed CWM and then TWRP but when I chose to install zip, I always got an error both on CWM and TWRP and therefore was not able to update to 4.2

You need to have your N7, fully stock, i tried too but always have a error related to check in one of apk's in /system/app. You need to have media profile without mod, no CWM installed, etc

I gave up to figure out what could be the issue when i tried to use OTA file liking you 2 are trying so i move on and flashed the factory image, I lose everything but now I have 4.2 running with root and busy box working using toolkit 3.2.0
