Over the past couple of weeks, Google rolled out the Android 5.0.1 update for their supported Nexus smartphones and tablets. Now we are hearing that the Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update is rolling out for the Moto G 1st and 2nd generation.

As you may know already, the Moto G Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update will only bring minor changes, but you would definitely want it installed on your handset. Just like any major OS update, Lollipop arrived with a few bugs and Android 5.0.1 is set to fix many of them. For the time being there's no official changelog available for the Moto G Android 5.0.1 Lollipop update. In fact, there's no word from Motorola that the new firmware is being rolled out. Just some users reporting that the new update is hitting their devices.

According to the users who already received the update, the Android 5.0.1 update for Moto G 1st gen has system version 220.21.25 and build number LXB22.46-25, while the update for Moto G 2nd gen has system version 22.21.25 and build number LXB22.46-25. You should expect the update to weigh in at below 50 MB, so it's safe to download it using your mobile data connection without doing to much damage to your data plan.

The Moto G Android 5.0.1 Lollipop OTA update is being pushed to users in stages, which means that some of you would have to wait longer than others. After your terminal becomes eligible to receive the new firmware you should be able to notice a system update message in the notifications bar. Tap on it, choose 'Download now', wait until the download is completed, then select 'Install now' your smartphone should reboot and install the update. In case the system update notification failed to appear, you would also want to perform a manual check under Settings > About phone > System updates > Check for updates.

Are there any Moto G 1st gen or Moto G 2nd gen owners reading this? Have you guys received Android 5.0.1 on your device? Please let your fellow Moto G owners in comments.

Motorola Moto G EXT (2nd. Generation Moto G) through Consumer Cellular. US version. Still running KitKat 4.4.4. Emailed Consumer Cellular to find out when the release would be, and was told that they still have not received the OS package from Motorola.

It's been notifiying me for a week, then I clicked yes 2 days ago...every since my phone is not working. It just has pop up windows saying: " Unfortunately, Google Search has stopped"....and so on...everything is unfortunately...So I cant make phone calls, can't access my phone at all, nor camera, nor storage :*( Tried to connect it to my PC, to at least get my pictures and info off it, doesnt get recognised by my PC now either :((( Sooo sad, and plus I'm on holiday, so cant even take it back for another 2 weeks to the shop I bought it in :( Absolutely messed up and it will probably cost me money now to have it fixed abroad, so I can use it at least :(

No update in the UK yet for Xt1032 MOTO G on vodafone contract.
Don't really care about aesthetics, but there are a number of severe vulnerabilities out in the wild for any stock Android below 5.0.
These are :

Motorola Xt1032 (Motorola)

Android 4.4.4 Build KXB21.14-L1.40

English/United Kingdom (en_GB)

Security Advisor v1.0.25

Last scan: 25 Jan 2015 13:48:58

Vulnerable software: 1

Total Vulnerabilities: 4

Vulnerable Software

Android OS / version 4.4.4

Vulnerabilities: 4

Severity: 3 High, 1 Low

Severity: 7.5, CVE-2014-8507

Multiple SQL injection vulnerabilities in the queryLastApp method in
packages/WAPPushManager/src/com/android/smspush/WapPushManager.java in
the WAPPushManager module in Android before 5.0.0 allow remote attackers
to execute arbitrary SQL commands, and consequently launch an activity
or service, via the (1) wapAppId or (2) contentType field of a PDU for a
malformed WAPPush message, aka Bug 17969135.

Severity: 7.2, CVE-2014-7911

luni/src/main/java/java/io/ObjectInputStream.java in the java.io.ObjectInputStream
implementation in Android before 5.0.0 does not verify that
deserialization will result in an object that met the requirements for
serialization, which allows attackers to execute arbitrary code via a
crafted finalize method for a serialized object in an ArrayMap Parcel
within an intent sent to system_service, as demonstrated by the finalize
method of android.os.BinderProxy, aka Bug 15874291.

Severity: 7.2, CVE-2014-8609

The addAccount method in
src/com/android/settings/accounts/AddAccountSettings.java in the
Settings application in Android before 5.0.0 does not properly create a
PendingIntent, which allows attackers to use the SYSTEM uid for
broadcasting an intent with arbitrary component, action, or category
information via a third-party authenticator in a crafted application,
aka Bug 17356824.

Severity: 3.3, CVE-2014-8610

AndroidManifest.xml in Android before 5.0.0 does not require the
SEND_SMS permission for the SmsReceiver receiver, which allows attackers
to send stored SMS messages, and consequently transmit arbitrary new
draft SMS messages or trigger additional per-message charges from a
network operator for old messages, via a crafted application that
broadcasts an intent with the com.android.mms.transaction.MESSAGE_SENT
action, aka Bug 17671795.

If Vodafone doesnt pull the finger out , i might cut loose and #sudo (root) my device = move to Cyanogen Mod ROM.

any suggestions anyone???

It will come, be patient. Heck, I mean if Shubham Sinha's post is correct and Motorolas are crashing after the update, wouldn't you want the updated version that will be released without the crashing? I would. I mean, who updates Windows as soon as the new versions come out?

Reply
please · 4 years ago

Well Windows doesn't completely screw up external storage solutions when they update an OS unlike Google, so with Microsoft I'd be more patient. The way these manufacturers carry on with months long delays every single time you'd think they are the ones writing the Android OS from scratch. And if Google and manufacturers keep this nonsense up it won't be a real stretch of the imagination seeing myself cutting loose of the BS and getting a Nokia device.
