Android Lollipop OTA update for Nexus 5 Moto X and Moto G: Google is redefining itself as a design focused company and with the release of Android Lollipop, Google’s redefining mission has reached an apotheosis. Android Lollipop is about much more than smart phones. This version promises to establish Android in new device categories like TVs, cars and smart watches – and eventually an Android runtime on Chrome books will augment Google’s desktop presence. Android Lollipop is the new embedded Linux or embedded windows – a readymade, feature rich, and also design rich operating system. Also, Google wants to bring this on every screen that we use. Also, there is good news for Motorola and nexus users as Google has just announced the Android Lollipop OTA update for Nexus 5 Moto X and Moto G Google announced Android Lollipop OTA update for older nexus devices too, including Nexus 4, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) Wi-Fi only models, and Nexus 10.
Google has confirmed Android Lollipop OTA update in a tweet, but it has still not revealed an exact time frame for the availability of Lollipop version on most Nexus devices. As pointed out by 9to5mac through a Google product forum, this Android Lollipop OTA update is currently rolling out to the Nexus 5, Nexus 7 Wi-Fi only models and Nexus 10. The forum says, “The OTA update for 3G/LTE versions of Nexus 7 2012 and 2013 have not yet started, nor have they started for Nexus 4.”
The Android Lollipop update is also available for Motorola. Motorola said in a blog post,” We have started to roll out Lollipop in phases just a week after the public release of the software to the following devices in the US – MotoX (2nd generation) Pure edition, Moto G (2nd generation) US GSM, and Moto G (2nd generation) Global GSM retail versions sold in the US.” The company also promised that, “it is working hard with carrier partners” to bring the update to more devices.
Android Engineering is aware of an issue affecting Nexus 5 users running Android which causes significant miscellaneous battery usage while Wi-Fi is enabled. This appears to be caused by an abnormally high number of IRQ wakeup events.
Also, Google has released factory images for Nexus devices – Nexus 5, Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) Wi-Fi only models and Nexus 10 – that are receiving the Android Lollipop OTA update for Nexus 5 Moto X and Moto G. There are no factory images for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 (2012 and 2013) 3G/ LTE models yet. For users who cannot wait to experience Google’s latest Android Lollipop OTA update for Nexus5, MotoX and MotoG, factory images of Lollipop are available, but do require the flashing of devices in order to use and do not carry user data across in the process, unless backed up and restored by the user.
