How To Update/Install Android Lollipop On Moto X 1st Gen

  • First of all get a Complete NANDROID backup , as this will help you to revert back if something goes wrong or if you don’t like it at all (which is surely not gonna happen).
  • Now Download CyanogenMod 12 Nightly from here and Google Gapps from here.
  • Transfer these files to root of  SD-Card of your Device.
  • Now Turn Off your Device , turn it on again to enter Regular Recovery option by holding Power and Volume Down Button simultaneously.
  •  Now once you are in Recovery Option, wipe data and cache memory to do so navigate one by one to “wipe data/factory reset” and “wipe cache partition” using your volume key and then hit the Power Key to select the option and wipe it off.
  • You also need to wipe dalvik cache too , to do so go to Advance option and select “Wipe Dalvik Cache”.
  • Now navigate back to the main Menu and from there select “choose zip from sdcard”.
  • Now select the CyanogenMod 12 Nightly zip file you downloaded and install it.
  • Similarly install the Google Gapps file you downloaded.
  • Now Restart your device, let it boot for a while ( first boot up might take a min or two so keep calm).
  • Voilà, you now have successfully flashed/updated/installed Android Lollipop on your Moto X 1st Gen.

Note: CyanogenMod 12 is in its Nightly phase which means it is not yet fully stable , but you should not worry nightly doesn’t means that it is full of bugs or couldn’t be used as a daily driver, it just means that it is round the corner to be stated as Stable. SO Nightly ROMs are quite stable and could be used as Daily Driver but still if you ever want to revert back you can by simply restoring your old NANDROID backup.
