The Motorola company were the first in-line to receive the original Lollipop after Google released it for their own Nexus range of devices. However, it’s not until now that the second-generation Moto X is starting to find the 5.0 Lollipop software update arriving to notification panels. If you are the owner of one of these smartphones you can expect to find that notification arriving in the United Kingdom. The same LXE22 build number may continue to roll to other places around the world where the 2014 Moto X is available.

Android 5.0 Lollipop comes with a great deal of features making it outshine the older KitKat. Inside you will find Android RunTime (ART) taking over from the Dalvik, Smart notification giving you heaps of other notification options, updated Easter Egg ripping off Flappy Bird, the new material design user interface with a fully functional material design app drawer, Android Beam, tap and go NFC payments and more.

All OTA’ s for Android roll out in stages. That means there’s no telling when it’s arriving for you. You may get it before your friends or later. One thing we do know: everyone get’s the file eventually. Since it’s spreading across the Uk only, it won’t take long before it reaches all of you. Simply tap the ‘download,” followed by “install now’ options on the phone display to start your download. It’s advised that you use the WiFi connection and not the mobile data plan to avoid unwanted data charges and high network traffic. If you are not around WiFi you can put the file on hold instead of accepting the download. from there you ought to stopover at Settings > About Phone > Software Updates > Check For Updates and it pings back the answer. That’s how you start the installment.

We don’t recommend installing official over the air releases if you have root access. You want to flash the file manually from here. The OTA link comes direct from the XDA Developers forum.

Those erring on the side of caution should think about backing up the existing data so you don’t lose phone contacts, pictures, video and other sensitive data. Use the built-in backup utility or install application from the Google Play Store. helium is popular among Android users for syncing the contacts, backing up the market apps and more.
