    If I understand correctly, this was a TEMPORARY soak test, yes? And Lollipop is not widely available for the 2014 Moto G US GSM phone yet?

    I feel like maybe I'm taking crazy pills because I have a basic UNLOCKED retail 2014 Moto G (US GSM) and I still am not able to get the update... but lots of blog posts and forum posts say "hey, it's out!"
    It was starting to roll out, I think, then they pulled the update because they wanted to incorporate the fixes to the Ram issues to the phone with the update.

    IMO, the 'it's out' stuff is for people that already received the 5.0 OTA (or sideloaded it). This 5.0.2 update is a small 50 meg patch. The full 350 meg (guessing) 4.4.4->5.0.X has not yet been formally released.

    Nope. A factory reset always resets the phone to the currently installed firmware.

    +1. Once you apply the OTA Lollipop update, the KitKat that came on your phone is overwritten. From that point forward, any factory reset will be Lollipop (assuming our phones don't get whatever the M version of Android is).

    If you can't wait for the OTA to push to your phone. Its been captured and available to download and flash....no root no boot loader unlock needed. Just flash the zip.

    Thanks to all for explaining factory reset. Below is the OTA for the XT1064 in case anyone needs it.

    Big help for everyone who wants to be an alpha tester. (I usually wait until all you early adopters get through with all the complaining about bugs, and a point update comes out to fix them.)

    Agree. Please note this is the one that fixes everything. Its 5.0.1. Of course there is 5.0.2 but I think that is more for specific Nexus devices.

    Well, guess for now it is just one more option.

    This may not be the right place but I purchased the nexus 6, it was too big for me so I returned it for a note 4 which I hate cause I wanted plain android. Now my question is to you guys, if I buy the G2 second edition would I be satisfied with it? I don't care about LTE, is multitasking and battery and all that stuff good? Thanks

    I've watched lots of videos and read reviews but still thinking about it

    Note, you must be on 21.11.23 for this to work (at least that's what I've read). My phone is still on 21.11.17.

    Pretty sure the carriers have no effect on updates, regardless of what your customer service reps said. This is an unbranded and unlocked phone. By your logic, we could take our sim cards out of our phones and then receive the update because our carriers don't know. Lol

    Nope, still waiting on it.
    The moto g2 generally sold in India is the dual Sim (xt1068 variant) and if you look at the release notes for the g2 on Motorola's website, it isn't listed as one of the variants set to be receiving lollipop.

    Hi everyone,

    When I go to System Updates on my Moto G (XT1068 version), I am told that everything is up to date, but I'm still on 4.4.4. I'd be interested to know, has anyone else with this model received an update yet?

    Thanks!

    I am also on the same version as you. So I too could not update to 5.0.1 in the end. I have a white XT1064 US GSM stock device. Purchased in Nov 2014.

    System 21.11.17 titan_retuaws.retuaws.end.US retus
    Build KXB21.85-17

    Not sure why the OTA from Moto has not yet made it to my phone? I know they release in batches but its been quite some time now. Since 5.0.1 fixes all the bugs I was hoping to have it by now.

    IMO, the full 5.0.1 update for our .17 version has not yet been released at all. If we were, I believe someone on XDA would have captured and posted it. Also, the first 5.0.1 was a patch for those already on 5.0. It was only a 50 odd meg file or so. The full 4.4.4->5.0.1 file for .23 phones in this thread is some 350 megs.

    EDIT: There is firmware out there, if you want, that will take our .17 to .23. Then (maybe!) you'd get the OTA. Or at the very least, you could use this file posted here. Thread where the .17 -> .23 is here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...t2982339/page3

    Once the carrier starts releasing the update, it's released a few phones at a time, so as to not clog up the network. Even if everyone on your block has received it, you may not receive it for a couple of months. Guessing when you'll get yours is guessing a number between two random and unknown numbers. Finding a needle in an empty box with no needle in it is easier.

    No, not true. The carrier has nothing to do with updates on this phone. Only branded phones go through carrier updates. If you bought your phone through a prepaid company, then it will go through the carrier, but NOT this phone.

    That is one of the main reasons that people buy Nexus devices, so that they do not have to get updates through the carriers. Moving your sim card to another phone will NOT get you lollipop any quicker. I have my Moto G through Cricket (purchased through Motorola) and I already received the Lollipop 5.0.1 update. If I really had to wait for cricket to OK it I would never receive the update.

    If you buy an unbranded, unlocked phone from outside the carrier, it is guaranteed to get updates from the manufacturer directly. Your carrier would have nothing to do with it.

    Thanks. I prefer waiting for the official update from Motorola via an OTA to my device. I still have not received it. Seems strange given so many other models got it by now.
