Bought a stock 4.2.2 32 Gb model.
Unlocked it
Ran the image install .bat file, response came back:

downloading 'boot.img'... OKAY
booting... OKAY

Upon reboot, it never gets past the colored Nexus "X"

Went back to fastboot, reinstalled IMG file, same result.

What to try next?

Update: Fastboot and ADB still worked so I sideloaded a rooted ROM. Should have known better than to try to use a pre-packaged toolkit. It is always simplest to do things manually.

And simpler than simplest is to read the topic. This is a known issue.

It's a known issue, perhaps it should be mentioned in the OP rather than buried somewhere in 11 pages of comments, the first five pages of which all say "works great!"

I rooted my 4.2.2 nexus 10 then I update it to 4.3. But it is not rooted anymore. This solves this or how can I solve it?

No this doesn't work with 4.3. Look at the posts before you they all say that. If you want to root 4.3 just use nexus root kit or ncry toolkit. Both work. Or you can use cf autoroot which was updated to work with 4.3

For all of you like me that want root without unlocking the nexus 10 after a 4.3 update, see Smiling Cat answer here:

http://forum.xda-developers.com/show....php?t=2379616

1. Get Walrog Nexus Root Tool Kit
2. Get Chainfire's Supersu1.51.zip
3. Copy the zip to sdcard:
adb push supersu_path /mnt/sdcard/Supersu1.51.zip
4. Run toolkit, select your device (Nexus 10) and OS version (4.3) then boot using the default TWRP image the toolkit downloads automatically.
5. On TWRP recovery boot, press install and select the supersu zip.
6. Reboot then run supersu to confirm it's been updated.

The previous procedure does not require an unlocked bootloader nor does unlock it or wipe out data (unless you actually select that option).

Tested successfully on the first run.

I can confirm that this works!. I also used the default TWRP recovery, BUT, only as a temporary recovery.
