EDIT: Sorry guys, i won't be updating this with the new versions of android as my n7 broke. Sorry!


Hello people,

I made a zip file you can use to install stock android 4.2.1 on your nexus 7 using CWM

All downloads: HERE (Thanks to goo.im)

How to install:
  1. Wipe data (may not be needed if you upgrade from stock)
  2. Format /system
  3. Install Zip
  4. Reboot

Those zips contain the /system directory from a fresh 4.2.1 installation and the boot.img from the 4.2 factory image.
I removed recovery-from-boot.p
The rooted zip also includes SuperSU.
I will not include busybox, because scrosler already made it. Scrosler's thread
If you prefer Superuser instead of SuperSU, you can just install the official zip which you can find here. It will override SuperSU.


Addons/Extras/I don't care what it is called (can be installed in any ROM):

All extras are now hosted HERE (Thanks to goo.im for awesome hosting)

Extras info:

install_AOSP_browser_4_2_1-grouper.zip: This installs the AOSP browser in any ROM
deodex_zipalign_4_2_1-grouper.zip: This deodexes/zipaligns your ROM
odex_unzipalign_4_2_1-grouper.zip: This odexes/unzipaligns your ROM

clicking thanks would be nice... if you want...
Thanks to all that did!

Screenshots:


Sorry for my bad english

P.S. I would like if someone checked the updater-script to see if i did anything wrong...

I think so. I actually made this for people with custom roms, so they don't have to flash the factory image.

Seems fine to me. People just need to make sure to uncheck the "use accelerator" option and download it directly. It should be a .zip not an .exe. If you see that you've downloaded an .exe, you did it wrong.

On a side note... this download is wicked slow.
