My unrooted, stock Nexus 7 was on 4.4. I received an OTA notification about 5.0.1 so accepted the upgrade. After the reboot and seeing the Android with the open stomach, it fails with Error against the Android. All I can do is long power off/volume up to power off and then power on again. It then reverts back to 4.4.

After about an hour I received another 5.0.1 update, went the same process and received the same error.

And I keep getting reminded about the update so I have just deferred it now.

Does anybody know what that could be? I guess I could factory reset the device there is nothing on the tablet that hasn't been saved in my Google account anyway.

Thanks

I got sick of waiting so upgraded manually. It went without issue. It does wipe everything though (but that doesn't sound like its going to be an issue).
It was a PITA to have to install the SDK and Java, but once everything was setup, it was relatively straight forwards.

Well since I am happy with KitKat on the tablet since it's my secondary device and not used that often, I might just leave it there.
