Second-generation Motorola Moto X getting soak tested with Android 5.1 in Brazil

Second-generation Motorola Moto X getting soak tested with Android 5.1 in Brazil
Motorola announced on Thursday evening that the second-generation Motorola Moto X is undergoing a soak test for Android 5.1 in Brazil. With the soak test, a limited number of units are seeded the update. By keeping the number of phones being tested to a manageable number, it makes it easier for Motorola to monitor the test. And if there is a problem with the update, only a small number of handsets would be affected. To have your device considered to be a participant in a soak test, you must be a member of the Motorola Feedback Network. 

Motorola says that the second-gen Moto X units being soak tested with Android 5.1 in Brazil are limited to models purchased from "select retail partners" in the country. Motorola says that other devices are undergoing regional and carrier testing for Android 5.1, and owners of those devices should be patient. The manufacturer's beastly Motorola DROID Turbo is bypassing Android 5.0 and will go straight from KitKat to Android 5.1.

Also announced by Motorola is a new Motorola Action that makes turning on the phone's flashlight a breeze, especially if you are a fan of the Atlanta Braves or the FSU Seminoles. As you might know, a new flashlight is included with the Quick Settings page on Android 5.1. Instead of fumbling to get some light in the dark, chopping twice with the phone in your hand will turn on the flashlight.

Just the other day Motorola posted the release notes for the Android 5.1 update heading to the first and second-gen Moto X and the Pure Edition model. Combined with the Brazilian soak test, perhaps Android 5.1 isn't as far away as Motorola Moto X users feel that it is.

It should be any day now. A person posted his system via a twrp install. Even though it is for brazil soak test, it should work on any moto x. Works good. Was 5.1 too.
