    The storage size doesn't matter, but the OTA for both the wifi and the LTE model have been started. If you want to download and install manually, that is an option if you don't want to wait.

    How long does it generally take to bet to all devices?

    OTAs roll out over a period of 1-2 weeks, with a very small numbers of devices getting it first to make sure it doesn't break anything and then gradually increasing the number of users getting it

    Is GEL ( Google experience launcher) included? I had side loaded it before so I am just curious. My launcher default reset when it updated

    I got it. Not a fan so far. It seems that if you have wifi set to sleep when the screen is off, you have to tap it to wake each time you turn on the screen. Very annoying. I guess I'll have to go back to having wifi on constantly, but before when I had it on, I noticed the battery drained a lot faster.

    Anyone know if the broken GPS issue has been fixed. My GPS broke (would not get a lock and was seeing far fewer satellites - only about 5) after upgrading from 4.3 to 4.4. I went back to 4.3 (JSS15R) and the GPS went back to working just fine (now sees from 18 to 20 satellites).

    The upgrade to 4.4 broke my GPS completely. I did a factory reset to go back to 4.3 and then overnight it automatically updated to 4.4 again. After that the GPS works again.

    Mine has locked on to GPS instantly since day one, before and after the updates to 4.4 and 4.4.2.

    My earlier upgrade to 4.4 was several weeks ago (11/24 or 11/25). That is why I have resisted going to 4.4.1 or the just released 4.4.2. Was your upgrade that broke the GPS to the original 4.4 or was it more recently to 4.4.1 or 4.4.2?

    It was to the original 4.4. The overnight automatic upgrade was also to the original 4.4, but this time it did not break my GPS.

    Interesting, maybe if I get the nerve I will retry updating, but probably directly to 4.4.2 by "adb sideloading" the update.zip from JSS15R → KOT49H. Problem is that the Pac-12 Now app also stopped working with 4.4.

    4.4 broke my GPS and one of my apps so proceed with caution.

    I don't use GPS on my N7. I will have to check it out.

    Maybe 4.4.2 fixed the issue??

    So a factory reset takes you back to the original OS that shipped with the N7 rather than resetting back to whichever version of the OS you had immediately prior to the reset (i.e., 4.4, 4.4.1, 4.4.2)? If that is the case then it must store that OS in some protected part of memory.

    Factory reset just wipes the data partition. It does not touch any part of the system where the ROM is stored. It cannot change android versions.

    Done some more checking, and everything I could find on the web indicates that doing a factory reset does NOT remove OTA updates. That is, if you had a device that was on Gingerbread and then updated it to ICS, a factory reset at that point would still leave you with ICS.

    So, I don't understand when you said you upgraded to 4.4 (KitKat) and then did a factory reset to take you back to 4.3 (Jelly Bean)? For me to go back to 4.3 was a complicated process which involved using the Nexus Root Toolkit.

    That's what I thought.
