    At some point I think the DT will be getting 5.0, it is offered on my Nexus 7 today. Does anybody have any experience with it?

    IMHO - new is not always better.

    I absolutely agree. I always wait at least a month before updating to the latest OS version. There are ALWAYS issues that pop up regardless of what device your on and I hate being the guinea pig.
    That, and I honestly don't see anything that is a "must have" with Lollipop.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Just heard from a buddy who updated his Nexus 7 - he's not thrilled with it.


    ETA - just turned the wi-fi off on the 7 - update proof now -

    I'll wait also, this dang thing is absolutely rocking, don't need any bugs. 5.1 will work for me. Unless it goes smoothly.

    Agreed - I am 100% happy with the DT as is...

    ETA - made a call from the USA east coast to the Philippines - excellent call quality - I don't need no stinkin' update.

    Let's see who can hold out the longest. Took me a week to download the out of the box update.

    I loved Lollipop on my Nexus 7 but a lot of apps weren't ready for it yet so I had to go back.

    They've already confirmed all 2013/2014 Motorola devices will get Lollipop.

    I didn't know that was possible - easy to do?

    Depends on your comfort level and what you define as easy. It is just a matter of unlocking the bootloader and flashing the previous factory image. You can use something like Wug's Toolkit to make it easy. Or have Android SDK set up.

    Thanks Garemlin - that is above my "comfort level".

    It really isn't as hard as it sounds. Now messing with Android SDK and adb/fastboot commands can get a little tricky because you need to be exact. But as I said using something like Wug's Toolkit makes it as easy as clicking some buttons. Not much to go wrong at all.

    Take a quick read here: Wug's Nexus Root Toolkit
