    I'm pretty confident that it will happen. Crossing fingers, toes, legs, arms, streets and eyes.

    Google said Nexus 7 would get it. Though they didn't specify which one. I imagine if it was just the 2013 model they would have specified.

    Didn't Google say that the nexus 7 2012 will get updates for 2 years?

    Haven't you guys heard its unofficially out thru Paranoid Android? As of yesterday and today. Official 4.4 will be coming to the 2012 as far as I was told. I'm already on the PA 4.4 ROM.

    It seemed like it took them no time at all to post the 4.3 factory images. I wonder what the hold up is on the 4.4 ones?

    It would've been awesome if Google had released OTA updates for all nexus devices on the kitkat announcement day.

    Hopefully this one won't f up Bluetooth keyboards the way 4.3 did.

    AFAIK nobody with a 2012 WiFi Nexus 7 has seen the update to Kit Kat. No binaries to sideload, no images available. Despite last night's tweet, I don't think it has been released yet. Probably going to update a majority of the 2013 models before releasing the 2012 updates Could still be another week or more.

    If you feel confident in your abilities, Android Central has posted the way to manually update to Kitkat 4.4. You can check it out in the news releases.

    It kept all my settings. So visually it looks basically the same. Seems no faster. I had some time to night and just wanted to practice my Command Line skills.

    I sideloaded 4.4 onto N7 2012 today after Jerry updated and posted the OTA package. Some of the icons are bit different, or at least the 'settings' icon is new. QuickOffice and a HP Print Service Plugin got installed automatically with the update. Other than that I can't tell one difference.

    There doesn't appear to be Google Now integration the way its integrated in the Nexus 5. It looks the same to me and you have to launch it normally. Like already noted above 4.4 doesn't feel any faster to me. In fact, it just feels exactly the same. I'm sure there are a lot of changes under the hood, but on the surface nothing interesting here and 4.4 feels and looks exactly the same to me as 4.3.

    I had a hard time actually completing the sideload. I couldn't do it on a Windows 8 machine because my Nexus 7 wasn't showing up as a device and I spent far too much time trying to troubleshoot. I just ended up sideloading on an Linux machine.

    Edit: One difference is there no longer is an "X" as your machine boots up. The "X" has been replaced with 4 bouncing balls at start-up (or whatever). Its the same start-up animation as on the Nexus 5.

    With your sideloaded 4.4, did your kernel change? I am still on 3.1 after side loading. This should have changed to 3..40something... am i the only one?
