Android 4.2 rolling out to Nexus 7 (and how to manually install it)
2) Make sure you have adb (if you don't, download the Android SDK and install the updates). Connect your Nexus 7 to your computer with a USB cable.
3) Open up a command prompt (cmd in Windows, or terminal in Linux and Mac) and navigate to the same directory as the JOP40C zip file you've downloaded, then type in the following:
adb sideload 094f6629314a.signed-nakasi-JOP40C-from-JZO54K.094f6629.zip
4) You should see a progress bar, which will eventually hit 100%. At this point, your device is installing the update.
5) Reboot and you're now running Android 4.2, so start playing with the new stuff like lockscreen widgets!

That link is even better as it is full 4.2 and you can flash it without restrictions, at least on my NEXUS 7 - in options do no MD5 check and ver check.

BTW, I flashed what was in that link above from a custom rom after doing a factory reset - you may have to do it twice and when rebooting be patient...
