    So i just bought another nexus 5 today (sold my previous one when i got the OPO) and i was excited to try android 5 on it but it's currently on kitkat 4.4.4 (was on 4.4.2 when it arrived) and i am not getting a prompt to update to lollipop, anyone know what's up? Obviously i have tried checking for it manually in settings-about phone-system updates but it says I'm already up to date.

    EDIT: Just got the 5.0.1 OTA now and in the process of installing it.

    Exactly it's been out since November which means i should have it by now, i know the roll outs are slow but 2 months is a little too slow which leads me to believe something else must be up.

    Also 5.0.1 and 5.0.2 have been released now so I'm surprised i haven't even got 5.0 yet

    Any idea when? I've done a search on Google and it seems everyone else has had lollipop for quite a while now

    ??? Was scratching my head when I read your post as to why you haven't received it already; maybe do you have to register your phone being a new owner of it?

    Hope it isn't long your update wait.

    My friend has nexus 4 and he is on lolipop. You should get lolipop on your device.

    Give it time ,the update will hit. you have only had the phone up and running for a while I assume. in the past ,on some phones, I have had to power down and reboot to get an OS update.

    If you dont mind, you could always flash the latest rom from google. It's weird how you aren't getting the OTA though. Hopefully you find a way to get the OTA.

    I just set it up as normal with my Google account etc, i got both the 4.4.3 and the 4.4.4 update which i downloaded and installed but nothing after.

    I wonder if it's been recalled? I would imagine if it was i would be able to find something about it but that's the only explanation i can think of right now

    I tried that 1st but their lines are closed, not sure why as they used to be open 24 hours a day.

    I`m waiting too.
    Had a Nexus 5 for months, and it`s still running 4.4.4 kitkat.
    Hopefully I`ll get the update before I get to android L.
    :p

    I went to that page before but didn't check it out properly as it went back to November.

    Upon closer inspection i just saw this now
    "January 19th and still no android 5.0, over 2 months after the initial release. And google has yet then released 5.0.1 and 5.0.2, I'm in the united states and I had a nexus 5 that got 5.0 but had to get a exchange due to a warrenty issue, when I unboxed my new nexus it only updated to 4.4.4, and I have been waiting for android 5.0 ever since..."

    I think it has been recalled

    I did power it down but didn't get anything, i also wiped google play services and google services framework data (apparently that doesn't help but tried it anyway) but still nothing

    I don't want to unlock the bootloader yet, i guess I'm probably just going to have to wait for the latest OTA as i think the earlier versions might have been recalled

    When it hit my girls Nexus 5, it really screwed it up, then another update smoothed it out, but still not great. then I gave her a OPO for christmas, and the Nexus is a spare.
