AT&T Moto X (2nd Gen) is now receiving Android 5.1 Lollipop

It’s been a busy week for Android users looking to get their Android 5.1 fix. The HTC One M9, DROID Turbo, and Galaxy S6/Edge have all seen updates to Android 5.1 across various carriers here in the US. Joining fellow Android devices in the 5.1 winner’s circle is now the Moto X 2nd Gen, which is now officially receiving Android 5.1 Lollipop on AT&T.

Don’t worry about AT&T’s support page. It’s kind of a mess right now. Aside from showing the Samsung Galaxy S4 on the header, it also incorrectly states the update is for the original Moto X 1st Gen. As you can see from the updated software version — 23.16.2.victara_att.att.en.US att — it actually references the Moto X 2nd Gen (Victara). The update is pretty sizable at about 508MB, so make sure you’re on WiFi before pulling it.

It was barely last week that Android 5.1 hit all Moto X (2nd Gen) Pure Editions, followed by the Verizon version only last night.

  1. …and still no 5.1 for the carrier version of the Moto X1. Ohh, Motorola… The Lollipop “update” for the 1st Gen X is like spotting sasquatch at this point. To be fair, they delivered three (if I remember correctly) timely updates during the lifespan of the X1 so can’t complain there. But if they were going to have this much trouble getting Lollipop to run on the X1’s hardware (which, to be honest, was outdated by 2013 standards when the X1 debuted that year), they probably should’ve kept their mouths closed until they did some testing first.

    Frankly, I’ve moved on: I retired my X1 months ago for my old LG Optimus and haven’t looked back. As we creep closer to September/October, I don’t care if Motorola takes another 3 months before the carrier X1s see 5.1. My sights are on the forthcoming Nexus refreshes and the final release of Android M. I could care less about a 2013 X1 getting Lollipop at this point.

  2. I don’t know why people are crying for a Lollipop update. I have seen a Nexus 7, LG G2, Galaxy S5, and Moto X1 crippled by Lollipop. It is not an update that people should be crying out for unless they want to cry afterwards.

    1. As with all things tech, experience varies per user. I’ve read and heard just as many complaints regarding Lollipop on the X1 as I have people saying the experience is smooth and works without a hitch.
