This question already has an answer here:

I flashed my nexus 5 with Android L(5.0) SDK version.
Do I get OTA updates for nexus 5, which started today?
Or should I flash back factory image? what's the difference between factory image and OTA rolling out updates?

Thank you, Prithvi

    If by "SDK version" you meant "Developer Preview", then from this post, no, you have to flash back to factory image. As for the difference, I believe there is no difference, except, you can experience it faster than those who are waiting for the OTA. – Andrew T. Nov 13 '14 at 7:48
