    Motorola Droid Turbo to Receive Android 5.1.1 Lollipop Update On June 10

    The headline says 5.1.1, but the body says 5.1, which is what Motorola had already confirmed. Most of that story was sourced from stuff we've been discussing here for weeks.

    Still possible it's hitting midnight tonight, and though I'm still skeptical about today, we know it's coming soon. I wouldn't be surprised if it was this week or next week.
    I would call the whole article into question from this excerpt from the article:

    "Since the Android 5.1 Lollipop software update from Motorola is being released in phases, it may not be released on the same day as the Droid Turbo hits the market."

    They make it sound like the Turbo hasn't even been released yet. How would they have any inside info when they're not even cognizant of the very public fact that the Turbo launched 8 months ago. IMHO that calls the entire article into question.

    Skeptical of today's supposed release date for our turbo's, I chatted with motorola to see if I could get more info from them. They stated that it is rolling out but an exact date is unknown. This either means that it should be rolling out, but it hasn't reached very many devices, that motorola thought Verizon should be rolling it out today, or Carlos was just saying that.
    Carlos was just saying that.

    I don't have enough posts to provide a link but I'm sure a Google search for "techworm 5.1.1 turbo" will provide it.
    Really guys, so it's come to this? An unsupported blog comment from something called Techworm? How is it possible that I've never heard of this informed and well-connected blogger in my years and years of following tech info in general and Android news in particular?

    I think this has moved well past entertaining and degenerated into downright boringly silly.

    Sorry, I was on Tapatalk on my phone before, so couldn't fully research. This first was reported June 2 by David Ruddock of Android Police (a site that I'm sure you've heard of) and Techworm merely reblogged it, badly as a matter of fact.

    See https://twitter.com/RDR0b11/status/605828513220816896

    He's now reporting June 12 (though he's also saying that he'll never report a date again and explains why dates are rarely pre-announced).

    Also, Verizon's Turbo page now says that it runs Lollipop 5.0.2. So, that's weird.

    They wouldn't release an update this big right before a weekend...so the 12th is him throwing darts at a calendar. Trying to get us poor folks to read his bs blog, so he can get more viewers.

    Motorola never announced a date. While some sites like Android Police may have insider sources, nothing was official from Motorola.

    Verizon's site now says that the Turbo is running 5.0.2 out of the box... I realize that it's better than no Lollipop, but I'll seriously be annoyed if they do release that instead of a more stable 5.1 or 5.1.1.

    Edit: someone beat me to the post

    Yeah, the person who updated the page just put in the wrong thing. We already know that the phone is getting 5.1. Two sources at Motorola 100% confirmed this in March and last month.

    Go to Verizon's website and look up the TechSpecs of the droid turbo...it states Lollipop 5.0.2. Just like the pic posted above.

    No update. I've been checking every 15 minutes and will continue to do so until I'm updated!

    So 24 hours in a day, four 15 minute windows an hour, 96 checks. Multiply by seven for a week and prepare for 672 checks per week for quite some time.

    In my experience with Verizon, they usually post this on devices receiving an update within days. I know when I was waiting for my m8 to get lollipop, they did the same thing. I had the update within 3 or 4 days after they posted the device as having it on their website.

    I am used to this Verizon OS update waiting game. I once owned the LG Spectrum and it took forever to receive ICE CREAM SANDWICH! It even got to the point owners where filing complaints with the better business bureau when other devices where already getting the brand new JELLY BEAN!

    Now here I am once again waiting for my phone to be upgraded while my wife (s4) and sister (s5) both have lollipop before my Droid Turbo.

    Yay me!

    The interesting thing here, though, is Verizon says a 5.0 OS for the Turbo when it has been well-stated that the Turbo was going directly to a 5.1 OS, so that doesn't even make sense for Verizon to post information on what should prove to be an outdated OS.

    If the next OS for the Turbo is in the 5.0 range instead of 5.1 for some inexplicable reason, I can just about imagine the posts I'd see on here.

    I have given up on my Turbo getting Lollipop, I ended up porting my Sprint number (used for Google Voice to get calls/SMS on Turbo) to Project Fi. Now I have a Nexus 6 running native Android Lollipop 5.1.1, and I still can get my calls/SMS on my Turbo via Hangouts.

    I sent a tweet to VZW support two days ago and they said they have no information on when an update will happen. I seriously doubt wee will get anything anytime soon.

    I totally gave up with Verizon and the Droid Turbo. After over a month with problems and Verizon would say nothing's wrong. duh, could not make calls away from my house.......phone would beep and disconnect. could not use ac, although I supposedly had 4G LTE. Had to use Network Extender, which I NEVER had to use before. One rep says 4G LTE GREAT another rep says you're in a marginal area (not according to their map though). Turbo would heat to 140+ when I used Google maps for 15 minutes. So, ported my number to AT&T and picked up the Lg G4. Awesome phone, battery life is actually greater then the turbo!!! 4G = -81 dBm Verizons was -105 dBm. Good luck, hope your turbos get the right update soon. Lg is running 5.1.
