    The OTA for both Nexus 7s have started pushing. I have heard of plenty of 2013 owners receiving the OTA. But no word from any 2012 owners. Just curious if their is anyone with the 2012 model who has gotten the OTA and how 4.4 is running on the OG Nexus 7 ;-)

    I side-loaded my update from the google servers. Android Police also have a mirror.

    Couldn't wait. Side-loaded. It was pretty simple.

    I sideloaded it but haven't gotten to really play around with it. From the little bit that I did mess with it it seems to of gotten a lot smoother. I was having lots of lag before the sideload, but now I haven't found any lag.

    Sideloaded it. Performance does appear to be better. But Ill need more time on it to really see.
    I find it silly that it doesnt include the Google Experience Launcher. I sideloaded that as well. Works quite well. I really like the transparent status and nav bars. Cant wait for devs to work this into the other apps.
    Its a much better experience than on the N4 where the grid size is restricted to 4x4. On the N7, the grid size is 6x6.

    The performance on my unit seems a lot better, it's smoother and the few niggling bugs I had seem to of been ironed out, I haven't had a dropped WiFi signal since running 4.4.

    Cosmetically, the GEL 3.1.8 update turns it into a different device. The translucent panels, fonts and wallpapers are very pleasing to the eye. The 'okay Google' feature seems to work well, but I'm not sure how much I'll use it.

    The battery seems to be running down quicker, but that could be because I'm playing with it more.

    If you're comfortable sideloading, I'd go ahead and do it. It appears to be a solid update.

    I could side load it, but just out of curiosity I think i will wait and see when I get the OTA and report back.

    Sideloading is when you download the OTA on your computer, and then 'sideload' the update onto your device.

    Noting in N.J. either. Honestly I don't think it goes out by region. It has to do with the internal address of the unit. It would be nice if we get it over the weekend but I think it will be next week at this point.
