    I'd like to know how soon we, nexus 4 owners, will be able to force the OS 4.4 update using:

    1. Go to Settings > Apps > All Apps

    2. Find the Google Services Framework

    3. Force Stop the app and then clear the data.

    4. Go to Settings > About Tablet > System Update

    5. The date should now show 12/31/1969 or something like that from 1969.

    6. Check for the update.

    **Id try it now but the wifi network @ works is really bad. If anyone wants to try it now let us know...

    Since the nexus 5 is shipping in a few days with 4.4. Wouldn't google release factory images at around the same time? Or would they wait till every device gets the update?

    They said that about 4.3. I did that and still not one problem. Screwing the account is more a myth than the work around

    I hope so. My battery seems to drain a lot from the screen but I rarely check it or have high brightness.

    I'm not planning to get the Nexus 5, so I'm excited about having kit kat on my 4. Maybe it's just sour grapes, but I like the slightly smaller size of the Nexus 4 better Don't really need 5", or 1080p, or snapdragon 800. The Nexus 4 specs are more than enough for my needs. I just hope 4.4 will improve the battery life.

    I'm wondering about nexus 5's battery life. Its only 200mah more, but has LTE, more powerful processor, 1080p screen at 5". All uses more battery.

    Googles claim that 4.4 will optimize low and med end devices resulting in faster, smoother and more efficient operation. If that can be said for low and med level devices then that should mean that the already fast and smooth N4 should be even better with 4.4.

    The hope of this has me pretty excited. Probably more than I should be.
