I was under the impression that tablets wouldn't get the update until after the new Nexus 7 came out. Guess I was wrong?

What tablets are you talking about? If you're talking about Nexus 7/10, then 4.3 is being pushed right now. I got the OTA for 4.3 on my 1st gen. Nexus 7 (ironically the day I got the new Nexus 7)

 

Thanks! And nice keyboard! 

Thanks! Microsoft Sidewinder X6 for those who are wondering.

I have the 7 and 10. I was trying that method that some posted using the Android SDk but it says it won't install because I don't have Java SDK installed. SO, I installed Java SDK and it still says I don't have Java SDK installed. This is on Windows 8.1

Try this. Basically, you clear the data for Google services framework, and re-check for updates. It may not work the first time, but I'd repeat it a few times.

Make sure you match 32bit / 64bit.

Ex. If you have the 64 bit Andriod SDK, make sure you install the 64bit java sdk.

 

(Edit) You may also need this driver (I had to force install) when it's connected in recover mode.

OK even though I have 64-bit Windows I had to install the 322-bit Java, so I got the SDK to install. The problem now is that no matter what I can't get the USB driver to install. I've browsed to it, forced it, everything. It just won't update and the device shows up under other devices with a ! and I can't sideload 4.3

Well, I couldn't get my Nexus 7 to show up in device manager no matter what I tried on Windows 8. So, I tried it on my Mac. I did ./adb sideload *** and it appears to be working and then when it gets to 100% I look at the Nexus is says "Verifying update package" and then "Installation aborted". And yes, the image was downloaded right from Google and it's the right one for my device. I have a feeling I should just wait, I am just fixated on trying to get it updated now but nothing is working...

Well, I'd check the MD5 of your downloaded file then :)

Well I resolved it. Apparently, Ii was trying to update with the TGZ files from Google which you can't do. I used the zip file that someone linked here and then it updated. I tried to put my Nexus 10 into recovery mode so I update it to but on the screen to select the recovery mode option it was saying "Downloading, don't turn off your device". I waited for a couple hours and it was pretty hot and nothing happened. I rebooted and got the same thing. I suppose I can just wait for it to be pushed, I just had hoped I could do the same thing on my 10 since I'm all set to do it.
