I’m on a play store version of the Moto G XT1032. I had upgraded to 5.0.1 when it was released and it worked great. Last week 5.1 was released for my phone so I immediately downloaded it and installed. Well what happened next was truly amazing. It took 30 minutes to do it but the update wiped my phone clean of any and all apps and personal information, (restoring itself to stock), then installed 5.0.1 which it was already running, then it took 45 minutes to download all my apps again. I spent the next couple hours re entering all my passwords and resetting my preferences and alarms. What a waste of time. Great work google. Installing the same OS version i’m already running.
