    It takes weeks to roll out and, to be honest, there are probably few regular posters here who don't monkey around with their phones to enough of an extent that OTA probably won't happen. ;) :rolleyes:

    There are probably way more people that leave their phones alone than don't, but they probably are just happily enjoying their phones and don't post much. :)

    It will come. Are you really unhappy with what you have? I'm waiting until December just because of some personal matters. Let everyone else work out the bugs. ;) :D

    I flashed mine yesterday. At first I tried it with adb but that didn't work for some reason. So I used towelroot to root my phone installed supersu from the playstore and installed the Nexus update checker to download and install lollipop.

    Yeah I don't like to mess around with flashing roms and that type of stuff. I'd rather wait for the OTA and complain that it's not happening fast enough LOL

    You can always download and flash just the OTA ;) it's basically the same as getting the update, but you don't have to wait for the lottery to call your number :)

    I flash the image, I love it so far! I thought I'd miss my dirty tweaks more than I have so far.

    So far the thing I miss most is ad blocking, but I'm hoping once I work out root I'll be able to find a way to do that?

    Everything else I really, really like.

    This doesn't make sense. Google releases the updates, not Sprint. 11/19 is the nexus 6 release date, not lollipop for the n5. Lollipop was released on 11/12 by Google.

    Rooted/unlocked bootloader chat moved to the ATR section. Lets keep this thread to OTA or sideloading the OTA via ADB related :)

    It was official on the 12th the percentage of devices getting it was very low! All that is saying that sprint devices should start receiving it on or after that date!

    Sprint doesn't control the update, but I imagine that was just Sprint's way of keeping the amount of calls it was receiving to its customer support lines low.

    By the 19th a much larger percentage of users will be getting it, so customers going by the website info won't be spamming the update button and calling in when it doesn't work

    My Nexus 7 2012 just got it but not my N5 yet. A little underwhelmed so far... Let's see what happens on my N5 which gets more real world usage.
