You need to copy the image file to an external SD card then use DD (as root) to write the file to the system partition. There should be some good writeups on xda that explain the general process.

You'll want to use the bigger of the two files posted as that is a copy of the system partition.

Yes. That should work. Just be sure to run it as root.

Does that file exist at the path? You can verify using "ls /sdcard". If you transferred the file to your external SD Card it'll be somewhere under /storage/sdcard1 . If the file is at /sdcard/ , the shell may have a hard time reading from that particular location and you can use /storage/sdcard0 instead.

OTA update
It's the super thread, so I'm mentioning it. The 1.102AT OTA update made my stock device significantly more unstable. I'd not have done it, had I been patient enough for a change log.

Out of the box, this thing was a rock. Slow recent-app-button behavior, but otherwise very satisfactory. Now, the damn thing reboots itself nearly daily, whether I'm using it or not. Pocket reboots are easy to recognize due to the stupid SD card mount notification; never thought that would ever come in handy.

"Eco" Mode makes data connection wonky
If you haven't tried it yet yourself, I don't have good things to say about the "Eco" mode setting / widget. It made the data connection for several specific apps unreliable, and in the case of a few like Hangouts and Google Voice made it relatively unusable. Turning it off didn't correct it. So far a factory reset was the prescription. Stay far far away....
