    Default Update

    Do I need to install any app or something else to update 4.4.3 or it will be directly installed from settings> system updates when it rolls out?

    It will come as an OTA update when it arrives. It will be in the settings you won't need any app or anything, you will probably get a notification telling you to install it.

    There is nothing you or anyone can do but to wait for the OTA update. As I told you in your last thread Google does this slowly in small batches to check for new bugs in the roll out. Kit Kat 4.4.1 started rolling out to the first 1% and then after 48 hours another group 4.4.1 batch was rolled out. After 72 hours that 4.4.1 update rolled out was stopped dead after issues were found and replaced by the current 4.4.2 update. There were people here that should have been on suicide watch after 5 days from the time people started getting 4.4.1 since all OTA stopped. Then people started reporting 4.4.2 updates they were getting and everyone stuck on 4.4.1 were freaking out going on suicide watch.

    My 2012 Nexus 7 tablet got 4.4.2 before my new Nexus 5 got any update. Since you will be selected at random when your devices checks in daily for updates it is like waiting in line. One day you will wake up and see a message asking permission for you to install 4.4.3 and all you have to do is accept the upgrade. It is as simple as that.

    Don't be upset when you see that lots of people are downloading the update from outside Google by passing the OTA process and side-loading the 4.4.3 update. You have to root your phone to Side-Load 4.4.3 update and it does take some expertise since you will see a bunch of people that tried to side load the update will end up bricking their phone and begging for help.

    When we got the Nexus devices we volunteered to be the front line that is both good and bad sometimes.

    The release of 4.4.3 is still a rumour,it might just be a Sprint update today. When it does start rolling out there is a trick to get it earlier. Go into settings and then under apps goto Google Services Framework. Do a force stop and clear the cache. The goto About Phone/System Updates and do a Check Now. Sometime you have to do this several times but it does seem to the update sooner assuming it's available.

    A Google engineer has actually gone on record saying that clearing the Google Services Framework cache can cause problems, so exercise caution.

    You don't need root or custom recovery to sideload the update using ADB. (you do need to have Android SDK installed to have ADB on your computer of course)

    This is incorrect. There is no such thing as a Sprint update. Sprint cannot update a Nexus device. They don't have the legal right nor the technical/physical means to release it. All N5s are identical and will all get the same update in the same rollout period. If Sprint makes an update announcement for the Nexus 5 then that means the next version number will be rolled out to everyone.

    Google Engineer Dan Morrill Sheds Some Light On The Nexus OTA Process, Urges You To Never Clear Google Service Framework Data

    and I think most of us who have cleared their framework... knows this article is Hogwash, the guy who wrote the article mentions needing a factory reset in some cases...absolutely ridiculous!

    The engineer claims your phone only checks in once every 24 hours, thats wrong as well, my N5 checks way more than that...and I have done the Framework clear after checking for an update and it has immediately worked. Between my GN, N4 N5 and N7 its worked with numerous updates at least 10 times. Only once have I ever had to sign out and sign back in to my Google account.

    I would like to see that inaccurate article just disappear, it's full of inaccuracies.

    and no disrespect to you Diddy, you are just quoting a post, but if you have ever cleared your framework, you would know that its harmless. Unless signing out and signing back in to your play store account is a problem...Google loses its tracking of your device for a while...I think thats what their problem is and why they recommend against it.
    N5 Black 32GB 4.4.4(I love this thing!!), N4 (4.4.4), iphone 5, etc., N7(4.4.4) AT&T The Nexus 5 is so fast...I just finished the internet...The ending wasn't great...

    Ok, you can certainly do what you want. I'm just putting this out there, and the guy is a Google/Android engineer, so I highly doubt that it is full of inaccuracies. He does mention (in regard to clearing the Google Services Framework), "Nothing bursts into flames, but it makes a ton of nuisances on the device, including some that can look pretty mysterious. Your mileage will vary depending on what apps you use."
