    Cool Is everyone receiving the upgrade to 4.4.2?

    The 4.4.2 OTA upgrade was just pushed to my 2012 Nexus 7. So, hopefully, you should all be getting it within the next couple of days. There's a link for the upgrade in the AC news posts if you haven't gotten it yet.

    Received my, {'O. T. A.' / (OTA)}, *12/09/2013* / earlier this evening, from, [4.4.0 to 4.4.2].

    This OTA came to me as a nice surprise, {poof and there it was//(install?/I said yes by taping the appropriate button), for my, Nexus 7, (vintage 2012, wi-fi, with 16Gb).

    Seems sooooo buttery smooth now.

    Just got it OTA for my Nexus 7 3G. I know there are some improvements to the Nexus 5 camera, but what, if anything, has changed for the Nexus 7?

    It appears the OTA is pushing out really fast, so you should be getting it within the next day or two. If you don't want to wait, you can sideload it from the appropriate link in the AC News blog.

    The 4.4.2 update seems more fix than anything, which is probably why it's pushing out so much faster than 4.4.

    What is the risk of trying this method? I have done this before on previous updates with no issues but I have seen posts about downfalls. I still don't have it in Tallahassee but I haven't had any issues with 4.4 so I'm willing to wait for it to appear.

    When I sideloaded KitKat it messed with how my Google apps synced (calendar, gmail, etc). I had to tinker with some things to get it to work it. I feel it'll be worth the wait. I recieved the OTA update this morning here in Texas

    The risk isn't with force closing Google services framework, the risk is with clearing the cache for the Google services framework. It essentially creates a new device ID for your device so Google Play and many other apps will likely see your device as a new one rather than the existing one that it is. That's at the very least, the article below by a Google engineer suggests other bad things can happen behind-the-scenes that are not necessarily visible to you.
