    After 1 week, the tally is almost even. 11 people in the thread saying no issues, go for it. 9 people reporting being somewhere between on-the-fence and wishing they hadn't.

    I have installed it on the two Moto X1 phones I own (Motomaker stock, and VZW Developer Edition, bootloader unlocked and rooted). Both run well, with almost no issues that I can see with the apps and functions that I normally use. Battery life may be a bit shorter, but neither phone is new and I've had to rely on mobile data more lately vs. wifi, so that may explain some of the difference. Still, I can get through a working day in my current setup, unless on the road or with heavy use. I do use a power mgt app that disconnects wifi when the screen is off.

    Overall, Lollipop is a plus for me, and I don't see an urgent need to upgrade to the new Style/Pure, though I may do so after the price drops.

    Verizon Moto X, updated on Sept 12 as part of the soak. Zero problems.

    Two weeks of heavy daily use, zero problems. Tonight, got a call and couldn't answer. Phone was frozen and would not unlock. I reset the phone and booting up had to re-optimize all the apps. Subsequent reboots were problem free.

    Hope this is a one time occurrence, but no regrets, glad I updated.

    MKReef -- I had almost identical experience ... problems were in answering and calling, phone would lock up and had to be re-booted. Last time it optimized the apps .. took about 45 minutes. Seems to be working now.

    I took the non-OTA approach... First I copied my /sdcard to my PC via usb cable. Used Appbrain Market to make a list of my installed apps, then factory rest the phone, and used the Verizon 5.1 SBF/FXZ that leaked (http://motofirmware.center/files/cat...st-generation/ the site has had some hard drive issues, there are mirrors on XDA) via mfastboot. Then manually setup and reinstalled my apps, and copied my watch faces (for Facer and WatchMaker and my Moto 360) along with my /downloads and other documents back from the PC to the /SDCARD. I then rooted via flashing TWRP 2.8.6.0, and manually installing SuperSU from TWRP.

    So far so good. I haven't found issues/problems. Wifi doesn't drop, bluetooth has been steady, sound quality on calls is good, stand-by hasn't be an issue, etc.

    Battery life seems up and down as apps get updated (i.e. it appears to be an app related issue), just like before, when I was still on 4.4.4. i.e. when I first updated to 5.1, I got about 12 hours and still had 30% battery left. Then I got some google app updates, and battery didn't even last 8hrs before I got the lo battery warning. Again got some app updates and was able to go long, but got more app updates yesterday, and again couldn't make it 8hrs.

    Wifi Tether for Root doesn't work, so I'm using Wifi Tether Router (in play store for $2.80) which works (but you need the right settings, and data seems a little slower). Also the entitlement by pass app (free, posted on XDA) works. The Entitlement Bypass app just edits the build.prop, so I don't know if that is more or less detectable than Wifit Tether Root or Wifi Tether Router.

    It's not bad. It took about 45 minutes for me but it was the first time.

    A couple of things to take away from my DIY battery swap:

    - look for a replacement battery *assembly* that includes the NFC antenna. The replacement I got was a bare battery and the NFC antenna is impossible to remove w/o destroying it.

    - depending on how careful you are, the back cover might be gap-pier than the virgin fit.

    Downloaded the update on my Verizon XT 1060 yesterday. As of right now, I have yet to run into any issues.
    Here I am a week and a half later and I've got some things to report.

    I've not run into any game-breaking issues, but I have noticed a couple of things. First, wifi can be a bit wonky at times. It'll show a stable connection, but nothing seems to load in any app. Thankfully, turning Airplane Mode on and then off again seems to fix this. Another little issue I encountered was that Youtube stopped playing videos entirely. This was a one time issue and was resolved with a reboot, but that brings me to the third issue. Upon rebooting, my phone had to go through the process of optimizing every single app installed. I don't have that many apps and it still took a good half hour to finish.

    None of these are egregious issues. I don't reboot my phone often, Youtube seems to be working just fine now, and the wifi issue is easily taken care of. However, it seems this update was not as seamless as it first appeared.
