Android 5.1 Moto X 2nd Gen update soak tests restart this week. Firmware upgrade could arrive within the next 10 days if all goes well.
You may have heard that Motorola started a soak test for Android 5.1 a couple of weeks ago, which was supposed to bring by now a new firmware update to Moto X 2nd Gen owners (I guess Moto X 2013 owners are a bit luckier), unfortunately Motorola “discovered an issue which we need to address,” and had to postpone the tests.
As bad as this may sound have no fear, as Motorola announced through the voice of Mr. David Schuster that they “are starting the full soak test today (June 23) for Android 5.1 Lollipop for Moto X (2nd Gen) with USC in the US.”
If all goes smooth with Motorola soak tests this second time, we are looking at a full firmware deployment within the next week or so, and it might be available in Europe as well.
