    Default [ROOTED] 4.1.2 not wanting to update to 4.2

    I unlocked and rooted my nexus 7 with zero neck's guide but did not flash a custom recovery on it, so it still has the stock recovery. Iv gone into settings > apps > all > google services framework, cleared the data and force stopped it. That will let me download 4.2 again but after I reboot and it goes to install, the little android guy on his back with the red triangle. I have also tried using the side-load method, but google's adb driver wont install on windows 8. I want to update to 4.2 but I don't want to have to wipe it to install the update. Any help would be great.

    Sounds like you do not have stock recovery, even though you think you do. Toward the end of Zero's guide is indo on re flashing the stock recovery. Follow that and make sure you use the one from the 4.1.2 image.

    I installed the stock 4.1.1 recovery on zero neck's guide, then I tried to install the update again and I got the little android guy on his back with the red triangle. This time I looked at the install log and it showed this.
    "Finding update package...

    Sounds like you have changed your system.. You have to be completely stock for the OTA to install, and it's saying you've altered something.

    +1 this. Did you use the Louder mod or change your properties file in anyway? If so, you need to probably wipe and start over, or revert back to stock manually.

    I haven't changed anything on it just unlocked and rooted it but I'll just wipe and install. It would end up being faster that way anyways.

    Had the same issue going from 4.1.1 to 4.1.2 and now had it happen going to 4.2. I'm rooted with stock. Flashed a kernel. Quick fix is to flash the stock image of the version you have. Using wugs tool kit makes it super easy to do. Then the update will work If u manually flash it or via ota. Its just annoying because it will wipe or device.
    Good luck!

    Download and flash the ROM in that link. It is a rooted stock 4.2 ROM. I wiped cache, dalvik, system and did a factory reset. Works great with none of the issues that are complained about. It's a bit of a pain to have to do the full wipe, but it's a bigger pain to have a not quite working, funky install. I have twrp and can easily restore either 4.1.2 or 4.2 nandroid backups. 4.2 will create a folder called "storage0" or just 0 and previous stuff will be there. You will have to move stuff from 0 to twrp to have the recovery able to find it.

    Flashing a kernel could change a lot of things, including the build.prop file. Make sure you are on stock. On my Nexus 32 after I upgraded to 4.2 I hated it and went all the way back to 4.1. After starting, I upgraded to 4.1.1, then 4.1.2, then rooted and added CWM recovery. After that I rebuilt my apps and settings, then flashed a custom kernel for performance tweaks.
