1st-gen Moto G and 2nd-gen Moto X getting Android Lollipop updates in Canada
Motorola has launched its Lollipop update rockets towards its first-generation Moto G and second-generation Moto X. The information comes out of Canada, where a wide release of Android 5.0.2 Lollipop for the 1st-gen Moto G on Virgin, TELUS, Koodo, Videotron, WIND, and unlocked devices is happening. Meanwhile, Android 5.0.1 is heading towards Moto X (2014) owners on WIND after a small number of devices were affected from a botched initial Lollipop update.

As of now, owners of the first generation Moto X and the Moto E are the ones left without Lollipop updates, but Motorola will attend to the matter. In addition, the Lenovo-owned company may be about to release its second-generation Moto E smartphone on Verizon soon, and the phone could launch with Lollipop out of the box,

Motorola's release notes for the Moto G (2nd gen) and Moto X (2nd gen)'s Android 5.0 Lollipop updates are quite extensive, so if you are not in touch with all the enhancements and changes contained within them, click here if you have a Moto G and here if you have a Moto X.

This makes no sense. Where the hell is 5.0.1+ for the Moto X 2nd gen. Pure Edition???

I just don't get the big craze of lollipop as far as compared to KitKat. I just updated a 2nd gen Moto G to it again & wish I hadn't! Because another thing that keeps P***ing me off with google as well (It happened with jellybean) is how they keep changing codes to where apps that worked perfectly fine before don't work! Although the 2nd gen G has fine great loud speaker sound already, There is only one equalizer app in the store that actually boosts volumes even more! & it works fine in KitKat, But now not 5.0!. That's not the only reason though I am getting another one and not changing it to lollipop. Ya the white scheme is ok, But KitKat is easier to navigate. I don't like the new card stacks in 5.0 either. You swipe them away and they are not all gone as they are in 4.4. Also I am not seeing any of the claimed battery improvements, Anyway before this gets to long 5.0 needs some work to make me want it over KitKat & I know I am not the only one who feels that way.

You and me both, handle multiple problems a day of apps/games not working on 5.0 for the s5, m8 and other devices. Of course they are mad at us because 'we' pushed the update to the phone.

Yes indeed. Usually I am all about the newest, But people are not realizing that 4.4.4 is better as of right now. I think they just hear "new" & want it.

I'm sure you saw the above posts. :) I have had the original X as well. Trust me, You are not missing anything that much better by not having lollipop on it right now.
