    Which Nexus 7 are you using? 2012 or 2013?

    I have both, so I may be able to assist!

    I got my update (2012 N7) yesterday. I wish I hadn't. The tablet is practically unusable. PITA to unlock; super slow; apps constantly crashing. I understand that devs will need time to update their apps, but I'm having crashes with Google products -- Launcher, Chrome. Bah!

    If you're very impatient you can force the OTA.

    Both my Nexus 5 then my mothers Nexus 5 and my fathers Nexus 5 yesterday got the update. My Nexus 7 (2013) still has nothing but it does not bother me because the way Lollipop sucks up battery life much more on my Nexus 5 I can wait as long as I want on my Nexus 7 which is running great as it is.

    Why want the 5.0 version, it will destroy your N7. Research the numerous issues since the rollout began.

    Maybe update for nexus 7 2013 has been paused? Seems like a lot of folks are still on KitKat - may have dodged a bullet

    You really need to do a factory reset on the Nexus 7 after updating. It is very smooth under lollipop. My tablet runs as if brand new.

    I sideloaded the update on my Nexus 7 and works great...

    G should get their **** together. You shouldn't have to do a factory reset after an upgrade. I remember laughing at the crapple people when their last update was hosed. G's seems to be much worse than theirs. Seems G just doesn't care anymore.

    My Nexus 7 is not one of my main devices so I want it to see what happens. No update for me though. I think they pulled it. I have been avoiding the side load and it seems the people that side loaded had less problems than people that got the OTA

    Yeah, I'm thinking they've halted the update, not only for the N7 though. Funny how all the news sites keep real quiet about it though. From everything I've been reading, this Android release has been a complete disaster. I'm honestly losing faith in Google. From simple app updates (Hangouts disaster?) to full OS updates, they seem to have lost any ability to getting it done smoothly. Don't misunderstand, I have been overly excited about the L release, as I have 3 Nexus devices in line to get it, none of which have BTW. But, the massive issues reported across the board kill the excitement!

    No issues on my N7 2013 after I wiped the cache partition. Prior to that it was performing badly. My wife has yet to receive the ota on hers though.
