    Since the nexus 7 is made by Google, it it always the first in line for software updates. Manufacturers like Samsung, HTC, and LG have to go through a process to make sure that the new version of Android works on their phone and with their software skin. Then carriers have to test the new software on their networks to make sure that it works reliably. So those manufacturers phones don't get system updates at the same time as a Google device.

    The Nexus 7 was manufactured by Asus, not Google. Google doesn't make hardware. That new software has to be sent to Asus just like it's sent Samsung, LG, HTC, etc.

    I understand, but since it Is stock android, Google doesn't have to send it to Asus because they aren't doing anything with it. So they (Google) can push it out directly.

    Aren't all Nexus line devices running stock Android? I don't think I've ever seen a nexus device with manufacture skin on them.

    Yes. And that's the point of the nexus line. To promote stock android at its best

    So why wouldn't Samsung, LG, HTC, etc not get the same treatment that Asus gets? I'm confused.

    When Google makes a new phone, they choose the manufacturer that will make the phone for that year. Samsung, HTC, and LG make their own phones and Google let's them use a modified version of Android for their phones. On top of the skins they put on top of Android. So they don't get system updates as fast as nexus devices.

    This might be a slower than normal rollout...

    I would agree with you on that one.

    It is now the 5th day that I'm waiting on my Lollipop... On my BOTH Nexus 5 and 10... Really hoping to get the OTA update before the weekend's over.. Sometimes I really hate the Google's staggered rollout..

    Especially if you're coming from an iPhone and are used to updates rolling out all at once.

    Typically they start at 1% of devices for around 24 - 48 hours; we watch the return rates and resulting device checkins and error reports (if any), and make sure nothing looks wrong before sending it to more. Then typically it goes to 25%, 50%, 100% over the course of a week or two.
    so...
    • 11/12 & 11/13 reaches 1% of users
    • 11/14, 1/15, & 11/16 reaches 25% of users (?)
    • 11/17, 11/18, & 11/19 reaches 50% of users (?)
    • 11/20, 11/21, & 11/22 reaches 75% of users (?)
    • 11/23 & 11/24 reaches 100% of users (?)

    That takes staggered to a whole new level. I'm not sure it would be possible to be more conservative than that.

    So tmr Ill be having 50% of chance of getting the update.

    For me, a disappointing upgrade is when I upgrade and my computer/phone/whatever goes to hell. Waiting awhile while my phone works perfectly well with 4.4.4 isn't disappointing.

    I believe the update is imminent. The Google Play Editions have started to receive. So Nexus lines should be immediately next.
    But I'm still shocked to find Nexuses receive later than the Play Editions. Congrats Google for ruining your own Nexus brand! Brrravo! 👏

    Windows XP worked perfectly well, but I bet you use windows 7 now

    That's a good point and I am very happy with 4.4.4 as well.

    Not yet, still waiting. I'm impatient - probably will just install it manually using the OTA update.
