i tried running lunch command but didn't found the "aosp_hammerhead_userdebug" is there any other way to flash 4.2.2 on nexus 5

Its because Nexus 5 not came with Jellybean. It was Kitkat. That is why you can't find Jellybean factory images for Nexus 5. You may try to flash custom Jellybean ROMs(4.2.2) for Nexus 5 if available.


I am afraid you cant because Nexus 5 shipped with kitkat and backward compatibility is not supported.
