No sign on my wife's N7 original yet. But given what people have said about stalled installations, I might just pass on it.

I have a Galaxy Nexus on 4.2.2 which has had the 4.3 update sitting waiting for months and I have eschewed the update because of what I had read and issues with it.

I also have a N5 on order and will of course take all the updates for that phone when they come.

You could just install the update and use the factory images to go back to the previous firmware if you found it was causing problems

My (completely stock) Nexus 4 updated to 4.4 on Friday afternoon.

No issues so far.

I did see a story in the tech media about MS Exchange users having trouble setting up new connections to their servers. I'll be watching for that as my Nexus 4 is currently standing in for my work iPhone 4 on iOS 7.0.2 as the wifi hotspot on the iPhone is quite broken....and I need it most days to do my work.

The only probs I heard about or had with 4.3 were apps needing updating they should have all been updated by now so no reason to not install 4.3 on your Gnex now

Still waiting on my Nexus 4 to get the update. It's more of a pain knowing 2 others with a Nexus 4 who got the update over the weekend.

I know I can sideload but I choose not to. There needs to be a checkbox somewhere saying I'm a geek so I want the OTA update first!

I wait...

A colleague had his N4 updated and it still connects to Exchange fine.

About the only thing he had to do was update Handsent since it stopped being able to send SMS.

There were significant N4 changes for me

- New phone book system
- New clock picker for alarm
- Text up top changed to white
Promotes using the new messaging system

Those are the obvious ones I can recall
