    Really, don't be scared to flash the OTA file your self. I have never flashed anything before. Literally ZERO experience. But you just download the file, copy it to your phone and tell it to use it. Really super simple. Search the forum for "Don't be scared to flash" as that was the 'guide' that helped me.

    Dude, I've consistently received the OTAs nearly a week after their release, and I got my OPO back in July or August. I'm assuming you are much newer to the phone, since you seem to be unfamiliar with the way this works, so prepare to wait a few days, if not several.

    Every OTA roll out is this slow. They have said in the past that they start small, see if anything is majorly broken, then start adding more users daily. Patience.

    Yes it goes to Google first for certification but, as with any software, it is never possible to test every single edge case that might happen.

    Here are some articles where the authors have spoken to an Android engineer who discusses their roll-out strategy:

    This is what happens with every OTA, to reduce strain on servers etc.
