    Hey Guys,

    About 3 weeks ago, I got the Lollipop notification update. I chose "Later", as I was pretty busy with a course and work at the time. I did a factory reset last night as I usually to factory resets before big updates as I like to have a fresh install. I have left it over night and check for updates throughout last night and this morning and the OTA will not come back.
    Do you guys have any advice on how to get it to return, or will I have to wait for Google to push the update to my area again?

    Thanks in advance.

    When you factory reset and re-register, even using the same gmail account, i believe that your device is given a different identifier token which would make it look brand new to the update servers. You can wait for the update to roll around to you again. It shouldn't take too long, but you could flash the factory image right away since you already reset your phone.

    What if I used a different Gmail account, as I am changing my primary Gmail account for my phone?

    It would be the same. You'd have to wait for the OTA.

    Ok good to know. Thanks for the answers guys, I think I'll wait a bit for now. I'm more concerned about updating my Linux machines right now. Appreciate the answers from everyone.
