Just wondering if anyone got it yet
Not the official OTA, but you should be able to manually update it even without root
Nope,just checked a few minutes ago...
How can I do that?
Correct me if I'm wrong, but I don't think it comes out until the 30th and the new Nexus 7 ships.
For those who cant wait for the update you can download the 4.3 rom straight from Google
Look for Nexus 7 Wifi or (nakasi) if u flash anything else u will brick your device!
So flash at your own risk!
Look for Android 4.3 (JWR66V)
And you will you will lose root..
Edit: I recommend making a recovery back up, either Clockwork Mod, or TWRP including a Titanium Backup as well.. It wont be long until 4.3 will be rooted.. If u Flash this, you will wipe your device to factory settings!
Not yet. The 30th? I doubt that. My friend got the ota on his nexus 4 yesterday.
They said updates to Nexus devices begin the day they announced it, so keep checking for system updates.
If someone has the data enabled version, they should download the tilapia one,
i manually flashed the update as soon as it was live on Google Developer's website. so far, it's not much different. =P
although, correct me if i'm wrong. if i had waited for the OTA, would that keep my data information? since i did a manual flashboot of the update, i had to re-transfer some files, re-login to apps, etc.
Yes, this is the case. I had found the link to download the OTA manually (which I flashed through TWRP) by googling. Only problem is I lost root and can't seem to get it back (I was using a rootkeeper app too)
EDIT: Rerooted with SuperSU
Now why didnt i think of that!
Personally im going to wait until Paranoid Android catches up
no rush to upgrade..im not that desperate for a few under the hood changes
If you did the OTA update all your settings would remain the same.. and imported..
I did forget to mention that!
Just checked again. No update.
Same here, checked both the 7 and 10 at 7pm and both claim they're up to date despite having 4.2.2.
Correct me if I'm wrong but I was under the impression Nexus owners got updates as soon as they are released. What gives?
Will probably take a day or two to get it out to our devices. However, all my other updates were lightning fast. This has been the slowest one so far. Oh well. The update is nothing special anyways.....
Google posted the files for anyone to update them. I posted instructions in the android lounge thread to update manually without root and without losing data
If you want the ota update you may have to wait as not everyone gets it instantly.
As someone else mentioned, its entirely possible 4.3 hasn't started rolling out over OTA yet because the device that 4.3 is being released on isn't actually out yet...
So while they've announced 4.3, the device its being released on hasn't been released.
So explain to me how my friend got the update on his n4 the day of the unveiling? Hmmmmm
My post was speculative. I didn't say nobody had gotten it, I said its entirely possible it hasn't started yet.
But thanks for confirming it has indeed been rolling out.
Thanks rxpert83! We will keep waiting.....
This is probably worth reposting here:
I sideloaded it to a stock N7 without a problem or loss of data. Only issue I am seeing is that 3rd-party video apps like MX Video Pro, Dice Player, and Archos do not work on 4.3.
I actually had no issues flashing that through TWRP but your mileage may vary
I followed these instructions, but kept getting a message that adb was not a recognized command.
anything else I can try?
Are you running adb from the directory it's located in? If not, is the path to it in your PATH variable?
