I changed my z2 for "moto maxx" now z2 has lollipop ... moto maxx has not been updated since it went on sale.
Now they say that is available to "select users"
Under this logic the "not selected" Users are small matter for Motorola
I never felt so disappointed of a brand

If they did, they're not allowed to talk about it. It's a major part of being in the soak test. Sort of like the Non-Disclosure Agreement I signed for Bose, Digital Equipment (Compaq), US Gov't, bbn/GTE Internetworking (Genuity), etc. "Sign here and shut up. You see nothing, you know nothing. Practice your knuckle-dragging drooling limp-leg ape masquerade." Half the subscribers here could have Lollipop, nobody but they and Motorola would know that.
That's not entirely true. When people are testing, they can't post in the public forums. By the time they post in here, they can talk about the OS and get help just like everyone else, but they can never talk about the test, or what happened in the test.

Six days have elapsed since the "oficial release" date for "select" users to receive 5.0.2 (already obsolete).
I wasn't selected for soak test, so I was not expecting to be "selected" for updates on the first hours. Now six days have elapsed.
I am still on KK and couldn't be more frustrated, simply because does not make any sense for me to own a high end device with "obsolete" software, plain and simple.
Frustrated. That's the word. And by the lack of responses from my fellow countrymen, NO ONE registered at these Motorola forums received the 5.0.2 update.
Makes one wonder doesn't it?
I am sorry you are bitter, but your statement is not logical. Lollipop is on less then 10% of phones, and half of those are running 5.0 - so 5.0.2 is not obsolete. 5.1 is out for a few devices, but not many.
I am sorry none of your countrymen responded. Updates rollout slowly. You will get it eventually - others have been waiting a lot longer.

Just as an FYI, during a "who's phone is better than whose" banter, a co-worker with an LG G3 has 5.0.1. Hates it. Says battery life has gone down and it's laggy. I'm sure it'll be (or has in 5.0.2) be fixed. In the meantime, I'm happily sailing along with 4.4.4

I'm using a Soak test Lollipop on my Moto and it is incridible stable, I did not feel any lag or bug. When the final version come out, it will be amazing. Just can't wait until 5.1View original
Please DON'T DO THIS!.
Side loading updates is not approved by Motorola and can void your warranty.
Also, it will likely prevent you from getting future OTA updates.

This uses the OTA that Motorola gave to Soak testers, is like I'm a tester, and I didn't use bootloader and things like that. I put an archive, rebooted the phone, and appeared an notification on Maxx about Lollipop, then I installed and ta-da, 5.0.2 on my phoneView original
If the file was not delivered OTA to your phone from Motorola then it is not official. The update servers have no record you received and you will probably not get OTA updates from Motorola.
This method is not supported by Motorola.
