    Default 4.4.3 update not installing

    I have tried to install 4.4.3 on my Nexus 4, I got it OTA a couple of hours ago it has now been stuck on the "Installing system update" for about 1.5 hours now, the blue bar scrolls across and just resets at the start every few minutes.
    Any advice? I'm now not too bothered if I can have the update I just want my phone, can I just turn the phone off while it's on that screen? Do I leave it overnight attempting?

    Awesome. Did it finally complete or did you have to reboot the device?

    I would also like to know what you did. I'm having the same problem with my Nexus 4.

    I'm having the same issue with my Nexus 4. Last night I started the update, but this morning it was still updating.

    Does anyone no if I can just restart my device? Or are there other possibilities?

    If found this at another board: 4.4.3 update

    I too was stuck on the ""Installing System Update..." for about 30 minutes. There's no way a 80MB upgrade would need that much time, so I pressed the power button for a few seconds. It then flashed the screen, showed the Google logo and it resumed the "Installing System Update" with the blue progress bar moving.

    However, this time it finished the upgrade in just one cycle. After that it went to the Android Is Upgrading with all the apps getting "optimized" as usual. After it finished that, it is now up and running as usual and shows version 4.4.3 in the About page.

    This was upgraded from 4.2.2, unrooted, purchased from the Google Play store. I did the Download and Install over Wifi, on battery power, no USB connection. After a few minutes of playing with it, I haven't noticed any issues, but I haven't put it through a test of everything I do either...

    I had the exact issue. Press-and-holding the Power button rebooted it and then it finished completely. It only did one blue progress bar cycle and then continued with the usual update. I didn't time how long I was press-and-holding the Power button but I don't think it was more than 20 seconds or so.

    Can someone please post a tutorial on how to install 4.4.3 without using adb? I have it downloaded on my N7 but i cant open it using a file mgr and i cant booti nto the bootloader to install it that way. It was a easy install on my moto x and with the N7 its one big ******* hassle. TIA

    Same issue here. Holding down the power button fixed it, thanks a lot!
