    They just announced 5.0.1 and I still dont even have 5.0? Anyone else without it too? It annoys me I pay for a nexus to receive updates asap and its been month since they started rolling it out and I still haven't got it!

    You are not alone. Google roll these things out by region, by model, for all I know by serial number block. There are certainly other N7 users out there who've not received it yet.

    OK thanks. I'm from Australia and my friend with a N7 got it already. I don't want to flash it so I guess I just gotta be patient. Just wanted to make sure it wasn't just me.

    Not sure what the rationale is. My 2013 N7 32G got the update the first week. My wife's 2013 N7 16G still has not. Side note my N5 16G got the update the first week.

    I also have a 2013 Nexus 7, haven't gotten the update and, hmmm, don't feel the need to complain about it. My Nexus still functions. I can do everything that I want with it and I figure when I get the update, I get the update. I have far more important things in my life to worry about.

    I beg to differ. Lollipop is efficient in ways KitKat could never be. Running on ART runtime, lollipop is more agile than kitkat's dalvik runtime. If you're having lag or battery problems you need to reflash with fastboot.

    We have three 2nd gen N7s in this house. I updated manually when the official release was made. My daughter's just updated to 5.0.1 and my son's is still on 4.4.4. I'll bet its done by MAC address and not region.

    I have two N7's, only difference was the memory, both are the 2013. One (the 32G) updated weeks ago to 5.0.1 and the other (16G) is still on 4.4.4. Seems strange, but it gives me a chance to compare. I did notice that 5.0.1 does slow the responsiveness noticeably but it is not a problem. At this point, I prefer 4.4.4 for a number of reasons.

    I got tired of waiting for Google to provide Lollipop for mobile Nexus 7s. Flashed CM12 nightly for Deb last night.

    It looks like the radio software is missing from CM12, but I was able to restore that by flashing the radio image from Google's KitKat firmware. Now everything seems to be working correctly. Lollipop is running smooth and fast on my tablet.

    I did wipe EVERYTHING and started fresh, though.

    Is this for developer use only. Do you have to be rooted to use file or can it be downloaded and side loaded.
