    I have downloaded the soak test 5.0.2 file manually( not officially supported by Motorola) and installed it on my Moto E. Will I get 5.1 OTA?

    Motorola’s policy of older mobile first is great but also a bit annoying. Update for Moto E 1st gen means 2nd gen devices will have to wait a month more. Well worth the wait i suppose.
