Well, now we know it's Lollipop, and credible reports I have seen suggest we will get it.  Anyone here have it yet?  If so, 5.0 or 5.01...?

I never received the system upgrade notification, so I downloaded a factory stock image and installed it.  Previous OTA notices came to my stock but rooted N7s.  Google apparently found a way to identify rooted devices, so we didn't get the OTA on this go-around.

I also received 5.02 update last night for my 2012. Took about 30 minutes to update from 5.0. Every thing seems like its back to smooth operation like original system. No more blank black screens.
