I'll have to check for updates when I go home. Finally all the whiners can stop whining about not having a landscape home screen (which could be easily fixed by 3rd party launchers). Personally, I'm not a fan of landscape home screens, it just looks ugly. Consistency is a nice thing, and portrait mode consistency for me.

Sweet. I downloaded an app which added that support. It was surprising auto rotate didn't work at launch.

[/quote]It wasn't something that was broken, they did it on purpose. It was stated when the N7 was launched IIRC.

I received the OTA update earlier. No big changes, as is to be expected in a .0.1 update.

Fixed the lag bug on the nexus 7!

Basically if you filled your nexus 7's storage past 3GB free space, the apps and the OS would start stuttering. Turns out TRIM was disabled...4.1.2 enables it again (only for the nexus 7 with samsung emmc). If you are experiencing stuttering, update to 4.1.2 then use the app "Forever Gone." The app will fix any past TRIM errors by completely filling the free space with blank files and then deleting it.

Been using it for a days. One of the first times I have left an Android device unrooted, and just taken updates like a normal consumer. This device has been pretty awesome to use!

If you want to force the update just clear "google service framework" on your nexus 7 and reboot.
you will get it almost immediately.
