Hey guys. 

 

This is a guide for receiving the newest Android System updates from Google. {Note: You must be on a Google Experience Device)

 

Link to definition of Google Experience Device: http://about.me/googleexperiencedevice

 

The Guide: http://www.youtube.c...h?v=rRQ80YMtXXc (All credit to original creator of video)

 

1. Open Settings

2. Tap Apps

3. Swipe to ALL

4. Locate Google Services Framework and tap it

5. Tap FORCE STOP and CLEAR DATA

6. Back out to Settings

7. Go to System Update (note date may appear as 12/31/1969, this means you went back to the future)

8. Press Check Now

If this does not work try every hour or so.

 

I hope this helps everyone!!!
