Video [How to Video] Manually update the Nexus 7 to 4.4 KitKat

Just threw together a video showing how to manually update your Nexus 7 to 4.4 KitKat.

Hopefully this cuts down the questions. You must be on the 4.3 JSS15R build to update.

Can you rename the ota.zip to just ota.zip?

Any specific reason that it only works with the 4.3 JSS15R build instead of the 4.3.1 JLS36I build? Is one just the WiFi version?

Yes right now there is no update zip for the LTE N7. I will update my site once that zip comes available

I just upgraded. It seems that the ota package doesn't contain the new launcher that the Nexus 5 uses. There is no Google Now home screen as the far left screen and the app drawer still contains a tab for widgets. Is there a separate app to install now from the store?

Those features are for the N5 only.

Yeah it does a signature check of your system files and the ota file, if one does not check out the update won't apply

I get an error when it tries to install the update - something to do with the BasicDreams.apk not being valid (or something along those lines). It then aborts the installation. Not sure if anyone else is running into this problem, or if there's something I can do to fix it. I'm running stock, but rooted, and I've switched back to the standard recovery image from TWRP to try the install.
