    I'm a big ol fan Android but I'm too scared to sideload anything so I'll just wait

    Side loading it involves wiping all data from the device. That means you have to somehow do a complete backup of all data and apps, which I have no idea how you would do in Android since there's no iCloud for it. That's the reason I won't side load it.

    I think I figured out what is happening. There are new OTA update files which can be installed without a wipe. These are not the files I saw a few days ago. Those were Factory Images, which are something else entirely. This explains why I was able to sideload Kit kat last year and install without a wipe. It's because these are another kind of file which till now had been unavailable.

    People need not mention their location since it is completely irrelevant with regard to when they get OTA.

    Does anyone have it up and running and can comment on how it's working? I recall the when I went to kit kat there were some broken apps and Flash needed a workaround to get it going again. But everything did settle down pretty quickly.

    That's par for the course. With most OS releases there's already a point release being worked on by the time the .0 comes out.

    I just found out that Dish Anywhere doesn't work on Lollipop. For me that's a show stopper. So no lollipop till Dish Anywhere and several other apps work on it.

    I decided against it because I was told by other users that several of the apps I can't do without are broken on Lollipop. When those apps work with it I will upgrade.
