Here's a video tutorial guide for noobs who want to unroot/unbrick your Nexus 10.



Drivers: http://stockroms.net/file/Drivers/an...usb_driver.zip
fastboot for Windows/Mac/Linux: http://downloadandroidrom.com/file/tools/fastboot.zip
Stock Firmware: http://stockroms.net/file/Nexus10

For Windows, type: (XXX may depend on the stock firmware)

Code:
fastboot flash bootloader bootloader-XXX.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot flash radio radio-XXX-XXX.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot -w update image-XXX-XXX.zip
For Mac OSX, type: (XXX may depend on the stock firmware)

Code:
./fastboot-mac flash bootloader bootloader-XXX.img
./fastboot-mac reboot-bootloader
./fastboot-mac flash radio radio-XXX-XXX.img
./fastboot-mac reboot-bootloader
./fastboot-mac -w update image-XXX-XXX.zip
For Linux, type: (XXX may depend on the stock firmware)

Code:
./fastboot-linux flash bootloader bootloader-XXX.img
./fastboot-linux reboot-bootloader
./fastboot-linux flash radio radio-XXX-XXX.img
./fastboot-linux reboot-bootloader
./fastboot-linux -w update image-XXX-XXX.zip
*Note – If you do not have radio image, you can skip that one.
*Note for Mac/Linux – If you get permissions error, try “chmod 755 *” before doing all the commands and also try adding “sudo” in front of the commands if you still have trouble.

Try pressing power, volumeup, and volumedown, all together until you see the blue menus, once you see that, do a factory reset and reboot.

Don't we need do the following code before unroot?
Code:
fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase system
fastboot erase userdata

if you really bricked yours as badly as I did, you might have to re format one or more partitions.

Fastboot format partitionname

Then fastboot flash partitionname imagefilename.

Don't think so, it overwrites everything so i don't think it matters.

I've fully flashed the factory image and it just sits there seemingly looping.

I've flashed the stock recovery, from Stockroms . net, the bootloader and image from the Google Developers page and it still just sits there.
Anyone have any ideas?

I've also tried erasing all partitions and then flashing again. Right now i`m willing to try anything

Why not link to the official source?

Also doesn't the official archive even come with a batch file that does all the necessary commands automatically? The latest pre-4.2 image from Google for the Nexus 7 did anyway.

The batch file I mentioned above for the N7 did this, and a guide somewhere else written before said that this was necessary due to some bug in the past (I guess something wasn't being overwritten properly).
