JELLY BEAN 4.2 OTA UPDATE FLASHABLE ZIP FOR NEXUS 7

Hello guys, here I provide a link to a flashable zip that contains the awesome 4.2 update for nexus 7.
flash it from a custom recovery like always.

link: http://android.clients.google.com/pa...K.094f6629.zip

here is the link for who can't get the ota update from settings menu.

the file is tested! don't flash it if you are on a custom rom, just stock! enjoy



this is the lockscreen screenshot (made with my phone, I can't take screenshots, I have not root access), just to let you see that is works and is pretty nice

and here you find a link of a video of the most important features on 4.2 provided by philespo, all credits goes to him

I think you should add that it only works over JZO54K, not custom ROMs

Be sure to roll-back any modification(s) to system files else the flashing will bomb.

I flashed the stock rom via TWRP
Booted and then tried flashing this, but I get a build.prop error

Not the fault of TWRP for sure. Did you modify the build.prop file in any way?

I have JZO54K, that is bootloader unlocked, and rooted, with cwm as the recovery. Can I flash this OTA, or it will not end well?

Thanks in advance

Go ahead flash, no problem for as long as you did not modify a system file, e.g., build.prop file, etc. I flashed the file on my nexus 7 that was unlocked, rooted, with TWRP recovery and pristine system files.
