Android 4.4 KitKat rolling out to Nexus 7s, Nexus 10
Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 with mobile data to receive update 'soon'
Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013 Wifi models) and Nexus 10 users may want to start checking for the big update right about now, as the OTA to KitKat has been released into the wild according to the official Android Google+ account. To accept the OTA as-is, you'll need to be running the latest stock build from Google, though an unlocked boot loader should pose no problem.
If you didn't go back to stock so you were ready, you've a couple options. The easiest, and recommended, is to sit tight and wait for someone to convert things into a zip file that can be flashed with any recovery, which will follow shortly after the OTA gets into plenty of hands. You could also quickly flash the last factory image, or you could just wait and see if Google releases a new 4.4 factory image.

It's funny that the head of the Android Community posts this.... (as we all repetitively continue to tap "update")..... yet no one anywhere has actually gotten said update...... hmmmm..... Might the OP of the Android post be a troll?????? Yes.... A cruel sadistic troll.... not the kind that lives under a bridge or anything.... that's just silly.
