    No, it's not. The build date at least the one on the about phone screen is software build. My phone was purchased in 2014 and likely built in 2014, but my build date states Jan 2015 which corresponds to the kernel version (software not hardware).

    Just a heads up again. If you update Over The Air you will lose root. Advice... Create a backup (including EFS) just in case.
    I had a niggling problem during install & solved all problems by going through Re-rooting through ADB. Checking whether Bootloader was still unlocked by ADB using the command:
    fastboot oem device-info .

    Make sure thatTWRP is pushed to the phone.DaxNagtegaal's guide will prove invaluable for anyone:

    Pay particular attention to:
    3. Flashing a custom recovery.

    If you still have Quickboot installed then you will get a nag screen. But I managed to use it to get into TWRP & flash the SuperSU binary back onto the phone.

    I didn't upgrade to a full Pro SuperSU which allows the phone to have survival mode on (this means you keep root).

    I hope it helps with re-rooting after the Update.

    To bad not all of us work at home and have a proper computer to flash it and are stick waiting for the ota so I just don't understand why is serial number based why can't they just release the update like Apple and let everyone download it when they have the time

    Because I doubt Cyanogen's servers can handle 100,000 uploads at once. Giving it to everyone at the same time would overload their servers and probably make it unavailable to everyone.

    Do you still have to wipe to update to CM12 when it reaches you?

    Ofc it doesn't work. He is just trolling ppl or he is simply dumb. The date is when your OS was installed. Changing it does NOTHING.

    Indeed. This happens every OTA. It's so annoying to explain it over and over and over...

    Possibly.

    What would make California special enough for this not to apply?

    Probably.
