    For anyone who gets Lollipop early - make sure you don't have the battery drain bug that delayed Lollipop from being released to the Nexus devices. :)

    Yea it's all over the internet that Moto X Pure Edition is getting the soak and within a week or 2 the full roll out begins. As exciting as the update to Lollipop is and as awesome as the title of "first pre released phone to get the update" is, why is no one talking about the LTE band update? I mean really?

    It's currently the "BIG" thing keeping me from buying the X and holding out the Nexus is not todamnbig :D. Alostpacket, I know you're on TMO so it doesn't effect you, but us ATT folks are worried. :(

    Finally on 5.0. Too bad I had to unroot to do it, but I'm loving the additions that Google made so far. When I get more time to sit down with it, I'll go through them all, but so far so good.

    My only gripe, though, is that I don't much care for the new task switching UI.

    Looking forward for the next xposed and Gravity Box releases.

    Can you clarify?

    What bug?
    What build was it fixed in?
    How would one know their build did not have the bug?

    /No offense meant, I am just really not a fan of vague warnings

    Incidentally I loaded up Lollipop on my device last night, so far so good. I got tired of waiting and grab a build from XDA that is supposedly the second soak test but then became the official release as it went well.

    Got my OTA update (via wifi) from Verizon. New look is nice, battery seems improved but I've had it less than a day so too early to say definitively. Hold-power-button menu seems to have disappeared. Previously had options for volume, restart, and airplane mode, but now just power off.

    Moto X 2014 Pure Edition...still waiting for the OTA...is it even rolling out yet?

    No idea but I wish it would hurry up as I've got a Bluetooth issue and I'm hoping it will rectify it so I don't have to return my phone.Why is there no news about the update.I feel like a mushroom.

    I thought Pure Edition devices were already getting the update if they had signed up for some early access program. I'm on Verizon and they have already pushed the OTA for non-Pure Edition phones.

    5.0 Lollipop arrived this morning via OTA. (T-mobile / Pure Edition from Motorola)

    It's running smoothly, though i'm still getting used to some of the features.

    One causality, though, is the Power Management widget. I know that all the functionality was placed on the new 2nd notification screen, but i think i'll miss having them on my homescreen.

    time will tell.

    I am late to the party as always but I got my Moto X 2 a couple of days before Thanksgiving and updated the software before the day was over-I never even used KitKat. . :) my old phone was a GNex with JellyBean. Gotta say, I really, really like it and even though the power bar is gone, most of those features are in the settings shortcut now.

    I actually got a second update the other night. 50 MB ish. I guess the one I flashed manually may not have been final. I updated all my apps too -- seems to have improved stability.

    Here's hoping you guys and gals get it soon! They really spread out the release it seems.

    Quick question: just got my Moto X (unlocked but AT&T branded, they were out of stock of the unbranded ones). Since this is a Christmas gift, I won't be activating it on Smart Talk til the 25th -is there a way for me to get the update or does the phone needs to be activated on a carrier?

    I think your best bet might be to ask Moto/StraightTalk customer support.

    I dont think anyone here can answer that for you -- too many variables there...unlocked....but AT&T branded...but not on AT&T...and maybe not activated at all....?

    To be honest, I am not entirely sure StraightTalk would ever push any update to your phone. Because they are MVNO, they are only pushing updates to phones they sell -- and ATT probably would never push updates to MVNO users. But I dont use an MVNO, so I am just guessing at a lot of this.... best to find out yourself :) Good luck!
