The Stock images of 5.0.2 have been out since December and are finally starting to roll out over the air to Nexus devices. There is a chance that your device has still not received the official 5.0.2 OTA since these files are released in batches. Thanks to some savy Android users you can now download the 5.0.2 OTA for both the OG and 2013 variants of the Nexus 7 and the Nexus 10. Just grab the OTA zip files, boot your Nexus into recovery, select apply update from adb, in a command prompt on PC type "adb sideload "file name", reboot and enjoy. There is an in depth OTA flashing guide at the link below.

ugh, been waiting for this forever, I don't want to sideload it, I may have to.

I had this problem with my N7 before I sent it in to ASUS now 'magically' it seems to be getting updates super fast. I don't know if there is a correlation's awfully suspicious :confused:
