Go to the index for the N7 3G and search a little, you will find the zip version
and go to the second post, you will find the instructions for install

If you search and read a little bit, it will be better for all

Default fastboot wont flash anything

everytime i try to fastboot flash anything i get an error.

error: cannot load

this goes for any radio, bootloader or recovery .img

i have no rom installed, i tried updating to 4.2.2 when it came out and something got screwed up. now being that ive had to fastboot erase everything, i have no rom or recovery installed.

i use a toolkit that can boot me into cwm if i need to but its no help that i cant flash a stock rom from there.

the toolkit can also install the stock image itself, only i get an error that my baseband is 1231_0.10.0_1021 when it needs to be 1231_0.17.0_1025 for the update

i just want to return to stock so that i can root it again and install a custom rom.

anybody able to help? i havent been able to use this for over two months because no methods seem to be working for me.

thanks in advance!

I'm really surprised by your comment, because I used this process before to write this guide. And I'm not alone !!!! and I don't use toolkit, only "Fastboot by easy way" and "platform tool" now
Is your install (fastboot or platform or adb) is good ?
Why do you use a toolkit, you don't need it.
Just "platform tools" is enough for unlock, root and update your bootloader and radio.
I don't understand your post!!!!
Are you sure to be root ?
Are to to respect the order od the install of this guide?
All of your downloads are good.. check the md5 !

Default Bootlooping and cant go to fastboot

This is my first post/reply in xda ...
I had CM 10 on my nexus 7 . I tried to flash stock rom and followed another guide on xda which told me execute these fastboot commands ....

fastboot erase boot
fastboot erase cache
fastboot erase recovery
fastboot erase system
fastboot -w update ROM.zip

I successfully erased boot ,cache ,recovery and system but the last command failed with a error "too many links " or something like that . Then I restarted the device and it's bootlooping since then . I cant even go into fastboot anymore pressing the power buttong + volume down .

What should I do ?
