    Motorola has announced that the next version of Android for the 2nd Gen Moto X will be the 5.1 Android build that is currently available for Nexus devices. They have not said anything however about updating the Moto G to this version of Android. Who knows when the Moto G will have the 5.1 build. While Motorola takes their precious time updating this device Rom developers already have a 5.1 Rom available for this device.

    This is based on AOSP Android 5.1 and features all of the changes that were introduced in this build. This is the beta version of the rom so not all functions are working. Working features include RIL, WiFi, Bluetooth, Audio, Mobile Data, Offline Charge, USB OTG, MTP, Hotspot WiFi. The few features that aren't working include Stock SMS won't send text messages (3rd party messenger apps work fine), the rom won't support CDMA, dual sim not supported. Other than those few things this rom is daily driver ready. Grab the Rom from the link below.

    With these devices as they are, bare bones at best, it will still take time to get all of Android 5.1 working flawlessly. This isn't 4.4.2 to 4.4.4. This is a whole new Android version with a lot of changes. Hardware and software still need to be married together, versions need to be tested and checked for bugs. Not to mention that we now have multiple versions of the Moto X, Moto G and Moto E. That is a lot of phones to crank out software updates for in a small period of time. It will happen unless Motorola says definitively it will not.
