    So it's been 5 days. Has any one received the Kitkat OTA update on the 2012 Nexus 7?

    It feels like majority of us haven't received it.

    Not on my n7 2012. I tried sideloading and almost died trying. Didn't turn into a brick though!

    Yeah I am not a huge fan of side loading even though it is not that complicated. I always play it safe and install the OTA update. I just don't understand what is taking so long. This is unusual for Google.

    I got tired of waiting for the OTA and went ahead and used this link and sideloaded KitKat

    It seems a pity that, aside from the more complicated sideload, Google doesn't supply the OS upgrade via it's own online Google Play Store, say, along the lines of (dare I say it) Apple's iTunes or Mac App Store. Plug your Nexus into your computer, choose the OS Upgrade and let it all download and install via the Store. Google's servers permitting, this would seem to be a way they could get the OS quickly, securely and relatively brick-free, especially if users have sometimes dodgy OTA connectivity.

    It seems like if you are technically savvy enough to want the update that quickly, you could at least download 2 things and run a command line code.

    You'd think so - but you would be wrong.

    The device is not even my secondary bit of daily tech kit, so if the sideload can't be handled in a way that doesn't thrill a geek (and here I'll point out I've already smaller sideloaded .apk files directly onto my 7 via direct downloads and installs on the device), then I suppose I shall wait until Google gets it's act together. Lost opportunity Google to make the Android Experience a little less nerdy - and duly noted.
    Que sera, sera.

    How do you know if you have a 2012 or 2013?

    Thanks!

    It's another way of saying 1st generation Nexus 7 (2012 release year) and 2nd generation (2013). There are many differences, but here's the easy way.

    Look at the back while holding the tablet in portrait orientation (like you'd hold a book).

    2012/1st gen: NEXUS is written horizontally

    2013/2nd gen: NEXUS is written vertically

    The consensus seems to still be no. I have yet to hear from one person that they have received an OTA on the 2012 N7. :-(

    I keep checking, but nada.

    With the VZW Moto X KitKat soak test starting this week (supposedly), I'm curious if the Moto X will get kitkat before the rolling (slowly) OTA to my Nexus 7!

    I have the 2013 and have not received OTA yet. If it ever comes I hope it fixes the "freezing" problems on this tablet.

    I have not seen any screenshots of the OTA update either. Only like two people who say they had the update pushed to their device. Something is fishy, many more should of received this update already.

    Not yet. My 2013 Nexus 7 has had its framework reset several times, I gave up this weekend. I would prefer that they start putting out the OTA, and then announce it afterwards.

    I returned for Nexus 7's, all with very bad freezing problems, and keyboard problems. I recently got my 5th Nexus 7 after giving up for about a month, and I'm having no problems with this one which was manufactured in September. It probably has something to do with the manufacturing date and the factory that was used to manufacture the device.
