    Got mine via ‘mi-fi’ which is technically a phone dongle with a sim card…

  • Ashley Curtis

    Downloaded it. Got an error. Now it’s stuck at X. Thanks a bunch Google.

      Happened to me too. Just hold down all three buttons to reset the phone.

    Got my update for my nexus 7 and galaxy nexus tonight around 8

  • mark adams

    I got mine Saturday 27th on both Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 at the same time

    Don’t forget to activate Dial pad auto complete in phone settings, its pretty neat and possibly the most useful part of the update. Apparently fstrim has been added which clears unused memory blocks speeding up older Nexus 7’s so that’s good too ;-)

    • ravmania

      The only useful part!

    One thing that 4.3 brings to Nexus devices is Trim. This means if you have an older device that you have added / deleted a lot of media files on, and now find that it is getting a little sluggish, lletting Trim run a few times could speed that bad boy up.
