No I got it bjs, thanks!  YEA, it looks like I have 4.2.2 now.  I guess I just need to see if I'm still rooted....

OK, OK, I have 2.2.  Bhen I look at Voodoo OTA RootKeeper, the "divice rooted was unchecked and it gave the option to 'restore root' which I did.  NOw it wants to know if I want to 'Delete su backup'...  Should I??

Hey!  So far it's lookin' good... "Android is upgrading"...  now 'Optimizing app 51 of 81'.

I went through the whole thing BUT when it reboots I still have 4.2.1
I have Voodo OTA root also GooManager installed. Using Goomanager I got it boot up to TWRP and try to install the new firmware in zip form BUT still no luck

I hope you have better luck than I
Patiently waiting for a detailed guide

In any case, a BIG Thanks to all the mods and experts who try to help out

Had to flash the stock ROM and then root/cwm, install tapatalk, d/l the update, reboot into recovery, install the update, reboot, install stickmount & Titanium, recover apps and data from backup.

Worked well apart from losing my kindle books, not putting widgets back on the screen and having to type all my account details in again for Skype, mail, YouTube, Facebook, etc.

Then I disabled a few apps and restarted and got stuck at the animated X.

So rinse and repeat, without the disabling apps and it looks good so far.

I am going to have to do pretty much the same Nordie. My unit has been screaming for a reset anyway. I just haven't setup my computer with the toolkit since moving so I am kind of stuck at the moment.

Has anyone tried the adb sideload method? I've yet to receive the ota either in notifications or system update. Trying to avoid unlock, root, custom recovery, etc.

I think Jayj updated with that method.

Matt, have you tried forcing the update?

I've successfully forced it on my Nexus 4 12hrs after release.

Settings> Apps> All> Google Service Framework> Clear data> Force stop....

Settings> About tablet> System updates> Check now...

You have to be quick, before it finds your location and if it doesn't work the first time try again.

Thanks, jay. I was clearing the cache only. Got the wugfresh, downloading new adb stuff when I got the notification. So I'm good. Yippee. Too bad the system update won't point to a local file.

The nexus 4 has 2 different builds depending on whether purchased from google play or a store. The play versions update sooner, was wondering if something similar for the nexus 7 as I'm always late to the party. Maybe not a build, but some identifier elsewhere.

The adb sideload method looks simple enough, if you rename the zip to something easier to type... I'll try it next time. Klp?

Just saw this thread. Using the twrp recovery, do I need to unfreeze my frozen apps before proceeding with flashing the zip?

Yes, I would recommend un-freezing any apps to avoid any issues with the OTA.
