Download Motorola Moto X 2014 Android 5.1 Lollipop OTA update XT1092 and XT1097 [retmx, retde, retall, retin, retfr, reteu, etc.]

The Moto X 2nd Gen, 2014 edition, has received the official Android 5.1 update from the company today, and the good thing is, the OTA update is available for download and manual installation. So if you don’t feel like waiting in the queue under the gradual rollout by Motorola, just hit the download link below, and follow our guide to install the official Android 5.1 update for 2nd Gen Moto X (2014), model no. XT1092,  right away. The build no of the Moto X 5.1 update is LPE23.32-25.1.

Do note that the update is compatible with selected models only– it’s meant for retfr, reteu, retde and retain. Btw, if you don’t have a compatible device and still try, it simply won’t install, thus won’t cause any damage to your device.

Btw, as with OTA updates, you need to have stock recovery and stock system installed on your device. Unrooted and all that! If you are using a custom ROM, better go back to official firmware to be able to take this Android 5.1 OTA update. Big thanks to noemi.abril for this! And psyk82! And zarocks!

How to install Android 5.1 OTA update on Moto X 2nd Gen (2014)


Check the system version of your Moto X 2014, in Settings > About phone. After the version, model’s region is mentioned, like retin, reteu, retde, etc. If your model belongs to retdu, download the second file above, otherwise, the first one.

  • Motorola MOTO X, 2014 edition, model no. XT1097 (file retmx above)

Installation Instructions

Warning: Warranty may be void of your device if you follow the procedures given on this page. You only are responsible for your device. We won’t be liable if any damage occurs to your device and/or its components.

Backup necessary stuff. In case your device is wiped off while following the guide below, it’s good to have a backup of contacts, photos, videos and other files already saved on PC.

  1. Download the official Moto X Android 5.1 OTA update from above.
  2. Connect your Moto X to PC using a USB cable.
  3. Now transfer the OTA update to phone’s storage. Remember the location of it.
  4. Reboot your Moto X to recovery mode.
    1. Disconnect the phone from PC, and then Power off it.
    2. Press and hold both volume buttons with power button until you see anything on screen. This is bootloader mode.
    3. Now, use only volume down to move the selection to Recovery and then use volume up to select it and reboot into recovery mode.
    4. Wait, you’re not there yet. You’ll see a dead Android with exclamation mark. Just press and hold both volume buttons for around 5 seconds and while holding them, press power button once. You will see stock recovery and its options.
  5. In stock recovery, choose ‘install update from sdcard’.
  6. Now, select the OTA update file using volume buttons for navigation and power button to select a file or enter a folder. Once you select file, confirm its install and the update will start installing on your device.
  7. When done, you will be back to main screen of recovery. Select ‘reboot system now’ to restart your device and welcome the official Android 5.1 update from Motorola.

That’s it.

    The mega link is not working for me. Can you plz post a mirror somewhere else.

    • Mirror posted. Direct link available now. Have you tried again?

  • Marco L.

    it doesn’t work 🙁 Package expects build fingerprint BLABLABLA 🙁 error in sideload/ (status 7) . i have a Moto X 2014 retDE with LXE22.46-9.1

    • There was a small OTA (12 MB) that came before the 5.1 OTA. If you didn’t have that, it could fail. Can you provide me exactly what error are you getting? A pic of that would be helpful.

      • Marco L.

        Thanks anyway, I’ve updated my Moto x with another zip file, posted on XDA Forum for MotoX 2014, that file was only for the RetDE version and it correctly worked 😉

        • Joshua We

          Hi i have the same problem could you please send me the xda link? 🙂

          • This is the RetDe file he’s talking about. File:
            And download link for this one is provided above, both xda’s google drive link, and our direct download link. Look for this file, and try. Let me know.

    • Yes, it fully works in Indian version (retin). Do let me know in case you face a problem.

    • Don’t extract the zip file. Just copy paste to phone. And, follow the instructions provided above.


    Im not able to enter stock recovery


    Hey i have a small doubt, i installed this n its working perfectly :” (THANKS KAPIL) bt will this stop me from getting future OTA’s from motorolla ?

    • Of course not. No OTA would do that. Only when you root your device, or install custom recovery, future OTA won’t work.


    So i have np right?!:p

  • kishan meena

    Thanks Kapil, I heard few days back that Motorola found a bug in Android 5.1 hence stopped Over the air update XT1092. Can you please confirm this OTA didn’t have that bug or we should wait so that motorola will fix the bug and introduce new OTA ?
