Now, I'm stuck in the "flash rom" step.

I then used the Root Toolkit, Advanced utilities, Boot/Flash image, Boot (temporary) tool and pointed it to the file bootloader-grouper-3.41.img.

My nexus rebooted into fastboot mode, and it says "booting downloaded image".

It's said that for almost half an hour now, and I'm getting nervous.

Should I wait longer? Would I be risking breaking something if I just unplugged it and rebooted the nexus?
Eek. I'm no expert but I'd pull the cable.

If your N7 doesn't boot, don't panic. Try the flash to stock with the softbrick option selected. If that doesn't work there's really smart folks on here to help.

Either way, to avoid not getting the right image, I'd flash stock and unroot to 4.1.2. Then, if you wanted, root from there.

Let us know how it goes.
Once I had a Nokia 6015i, but it wasn't smart enough.
Then I had a Helio Ocean, but Helio went adrift.
Then I had a Palm Pre, but that ended PREmaturely.
Then I had an HTC Evo 4G, and we had a grand times!
Now I have an HTC Evo 4G LTE, and all is right with the world.
