Whenever I try and uncompress the tar file, I get this:

tar (child): nakasi-jro03d-factory-e102ba72.tg: Cannot open: No such file or directory
tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now
tar: Child returned status 2
tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now

I'm fairly new to Ubuntu. So I'm pretty sure that's my fault. So I just compress it manually using the GUI. But when I try to flash it, I get

sudo: ./flash-all.sh: command not found

What exact command are you running? It looks as if you left out the 'z' on the file name. Make sure you run tar zxvf nakasi-jro03d-factory-e102ba72.tgz –  Chris Wayne Nov 5 '12 at 16:10
    
$ tar zxvf nakasi-jro03d-factory-e102ba72.tgz tar (child): nakasi-jro03d-factory-e102ba72.tgz: Cannot open: No such file or directory tar (child): Error is not recoverable: exiting now tar: Child returned status 2 tar: Error is not recoverable: exiting now thats what i put in. –  kurt Nov 7 '12 at 18:38
    
What directory were you in when you ran sudo ./flash-all.sh? –  Chris Wayne Nov 7 '12 at 22:43

First, place your Nexus into fastboot mode. To do this, turn the nexus off, and then turn it back on while holding the volume down button. You should see a green android guy in the center. Plug this into your laptop/desktop via USB.

Now, run these commands in a terminal one at a time:

wget https://dl.google.com/dl/android/aosp/nakasi-jro03d-factory-e102ba72.tgz
tar zxvf nakasi-jro03d-factory-e102ba72.tgz
cd nakasi-jro03d/
sudo ./flash-all.sh

This should do the trick.

Chris, do you have a link to a site presenting that image file and updates? It's unclear to me whether it is stock Android for Nexus 7 or 10, and I'd also like to read about updates. –  beruic Nov 20 '12 at 16:08
    
I should be spanked for not googling first: developers.google.com/android/nexus/images –  beruic Nov 20 '12 at 16:10
