UPDATE JULY 02, 2015.

IMPORTANT. From 5.1 update, the modems included on the update are FULLY compatible with all models, XT1097, 1092 and 1093 and all carriers ,so, you don't have to worry about losing IMEI, signal or data.
According to @thrill1985 the XT1092 in Germany Vodafone with the new modem of the 5.1 is not getting 4G/LTE signal BUT 3G, so if you are faccing the same issue just flash your stock modem. I am in XT1097 Mexico Nextel with stock modem 5.1 and I am getting no issues at all, could be your carrier

Friends, if you converted your beloved Moto X 2014 variant 1097, 1092, 1093 etc etc to the pure edition XT1095 using this post and getting the 5.0 lollipop OFFICIAL and you want to update to the final 5.1 OFFICIAL update please go to the second post. BUT if this is your first time trying to convert to pure edition PLEASE READ THE ENTIRE POST and in the instructions you will find when you are ready to flash the 5.1 official If you are on some variant of 5.0.x BUT your BL is locked and want to convert to 5.1 Pure edition please read till the end of how to unlock your bootloader and make your own backup.


UPDATE APRIL 01, 2015.
I've been receiving a lot of PM asking me about the update to 5.1, how to convert, what do they need to backup, etc etc. First my friends, I don't answer PM about "how to do this", that's why I create this post, so, if you read the entire post, use the "search button" and you still can't find your answer then post a comment and it will be answered as soon as possible. In other words "PLEASE DON'T SEND ME PM ASKING ME ABOUT SOMETHING SPECIFIC, READ!", here is all you need to convert to pure edition.

PURE EDITION CONVERTING.

Assuming that you are on 4.4.4 (doubt) proceed, but if you are on pure edition but you flashed your own modem go to post 2.
IF YOU ARE ON SOME STOCK VARIANT OF 5.0.x OF SOME CARRIER BUT HAS THE LOCKED BOOTLOADER PLEASE CONTINUE WITH THE POST, THE STEPS TO MAKE YOUR OWN BACKUP IS THE SAME FOR 4.4.4 AND 5.0.x.

This guide is to convert any version of XT109x to XT1095 in order to get the updates faster and cleaner, this process is good for every model, XT1097, XT1085, XT1093, etc etc.
The problem comes when the people dont read the entire post or think that jumping one step will be safe for them...
Taking that as a base I have to recognize that since I made this post a lot of Moto X 2014 variants are in the market right now and is almost impossible to make a guide for every model for every company out there so, I am going to make a simple list and you should follow each step in order to avoid lost signal, no IMEI, etc.

WARNING!!!!
By now you should have installed the ADB drivers and the Motorola USB Drivers as well. I do not take responsability if you do not know when I am writing those commands.
Unlocking your bootloader and taking this guide is your OWN responsability and I am not responsable for bricked devices, ebola, zombies of if your girlfriend leaves you for being such a nerd like me...

STEP 1. Unlock your bootloader. You should be able to unlock your bootloader, please refer to the next link post to check if your phone is available to it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...-2014-t2876773
The post says that is only for pure version, but it works in any.

STEP 2. Root. If you was able to unlock your bootloader, now you have to have root access. Please refer to this post to do it. http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...motox-t2889264. WARNING. This is only when you are in KitKat, if you do this on Lollipop you will have a bootloop and you will have to flash a new system.

STEP 3. BACKUP. This is a must do! Only for your own health. After the root you will be able to make and entire full backup of your system, and maybe you can share it with us and make a big list of them, so anyone could use them in case of panic or nuclear war...
Please connect your phone with USB debugging on, and in the carpet where you have the ADB and FASTBOOT command open a MSDOS window and enter this commands.
Code:
adb shell
su 
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/partition of=/sdcard/gtp.bin
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/motoboot of=/sdcard/motoboot.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/logo of=/sdcard/logo.bin
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/boot of=/sdcard/boot.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/recovery of=/sdcard/recovery.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/system of=/sdcard/system.img
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/modem of=/sdcard/NON-HLOS.bin
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/fsg of=/sdcard/fsg.bin
After that, the entire dump system will be on your phone SD CARD, now you can copy to any folder you want, even make a ZIP file and upload it to the cloud to have it as a life savior.

STEP 4. BACKUP IMEI. although is hard to lost IMEI is good to have it as a backup., some folks are saying that after a bad system flashing or a lot of flashing the system became corrupt and make them lost the IMEE....as the step 3 follow this commands.

Code:
adb shell
su
dd if=/dev/block/platform/msm_sdcc.1/by-name/pds of=/sdcard/pds.img
And that's it, after those steps you can follow down and see how to convert your XT10xx version to the Pure Edition XT1095... Hurray!!!!


There is only one Pure edition, and that is the XT1095 model, not even if you bought your Moto X on Motorola (Motomaker) outside the United States. There a lot of variants that Motorola is selling throw their website around the world, but only the american version, XT1095 is the pure edition, so please consider that.
EXAMPLE. All XT1097 brand firmwares are compatible with all XT1097 around the world, it means, if for some reason you mess your Canadian XT1097 and you loose signal, you can flash the Brazilian version of XT1097 and your phone will have signal again, that doesn't mean that the baseband is 100% compatible with your carrier, but at least you won't be stuck with no signal; this apply to all Moto X variants.

THIS IS NOT A FULL CREDIT TUTO... IS AN ALL-IN-ONE GUIDE AND TAKING MY OWN EXPERIENCE SHOULD BE WORK IN ANY MODEL, 1097, 1092, 1093, etc..

If you are in XT109x Android 4.4.4 and you have not received the OTA for Lollipop or if you tried to sideload the OTA via ADB and did not worked this is for you, just follow the STEPS A to B, but...

YOU HAVE 5.0.X Version. unfortunately I don't have the full system of the 5.0 pure edition so, if you can find it please comment and the link will be added.
NOTE. You can't just flash a version of 5.0 Pure edition (via TWRP) and that's because most of those ZIP only contains system and boot (kernel); the recovery and modems are not touch by those ZIP's, even if the zip contains the modem your phone is rooted and the system partition has changed; your phone will be "partial Pure Edition", so please, don't do that..
By now, the only certain way I have to convert to pure edition, both 5.0.x and kitkat is to downgrade,then install the OTA's one by one, THIS ONLY APPLIES IF YOU ARE IN SOME VARIANT OF XT109X firmwares.
I JUST LEAVE HERE AS A REMINDER; PLEASE IGNORE.

STEP A. FIRMWARES
To convert XT1097, 1092, 1083, etc, to 1095 and then to Lollipop 5.0, you should download those two files.
The first one is the XT1095 Pure Edition 4.4.4 and this is the link. (for respect, the original uploader is @SolarTrans)
https://onedrive.live.com/?cid=227f1...MWPTB3ICDtezYs
Is the middle one. The Lollipop 5.0 OTA is the one on the right.
Extract the firmware in the same carpet where the ADB and mfastboot files are.

To convert directly to 5.1 please use this link instead. Thanks to @AGISCI for providing the links.
http://www.filefactory.com/folder/dd...r=DESC&show=25 The one you are looking for the Pure edition is the VICTARA_TMO_XT1095
Extract the firmware in the same carpet where the ADB and mfastboot files are.


Ok. Lets go.
NOTE: YOU JUST CAN'T FLASH THE 5.0 OVER THE 4.4.4 LIKE THE 5.1, BECAUSE THE MODEMS OF THE FIRST ONE (5.0) ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH ALL THE VARIANTS OF THE XT109x. IF YOU DECIDED TO GO FROM 4.4.4 TO 5.1 JUST GO TO POST 2, BUT IF YOU WANT TO STAY ON 5.0 PLEASE READ FROM HERE TO THE END.

Go to he carpet where you extracted the 4.4.4 XT1095 firmware and type these commands

Code:
adb reboot bootloader ( your phone should reboot to bootloader)
mfastboot flash logo logo.bin
mfastboot flash boot boot.img
mfastboot flash recovery recovery.img
mfastboot flash system system.img
mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
mfastboot erase userdata
mfastboot erase cache
mfastboot reboot
Wait till your phone reboot and you will see that now you are in 4.4.4 XT1095 Pure Edition.

STEP B. UPGRADING LOLLIPOP.
After the reboot save the Lollipop OTA file to your internal SD memory.
. Enter bootloader of your phone, select recovery and you will see the android robot lying down with the cheast open, press volume up and power at the same time, release the power button after at least three seconds and you will be enter the stock recovery... choose "install from SD card", select the file of Lollipop you saved before and wait till the magic happens.
When the phones reboots you will be on Lollipop.. but not so fast, do not enter any account and skip all the proccess, go to "settings" and make a "factory reset" just to be sure that all traces of KitKat are erased.
Let the phone reboot...
Wait till you phone reboots and you will be on Android 5 Official, but you will not be able to get any signal, even entering to "settings" and trying to choose the signal manually, the phone will be refused to connect to any signal. So this is where we use the backup of our modem/baseband we did before.
If your phone is able to get signal CONGRATULATIONS!!! you only have to enter the Access points manually, but if you do not...

IF YOU WANT TO STAY ON 5.0 PURE EDITION FOLLOW NEXT STEPS, IF YOU WANT TO UPDATE TO 5.1 JUST GO TO THE END OF THE POST AND FOLLOW THE INSTRUCCTIONS, YOUR SIGNAL WILL BE RESTORED WITH THE 5.1 OTA.

Copy the files "NON-HLOS.bin" and "fsg.bin" to the carpet where "mfastboot" is. Rename "fsg.bin" to "fsg.mbn"
BE VERY PATIENT WITH THIS, because according to some people, flashing only these files WITHOUT erasing modems you should be able to get signal
, so
with your phone in bootloader and in mfastboot mode type

Code:
mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
mfastboot reboot
After this, your phone should reboot and get signal... but if do not happen (like me) try this.
with you phone in bootloader and in mfastboot mode type

Code:
mfastboot erase modemst1 
mfastboot erase modemst2 
mfastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
mfastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
mfastboot reboot
After the reboot you should have signal yes or yes.. REGARDS!!!! you are now enjoying the sweet of Official Lollipop.

Lollipop Nextel MX

Now, if you want the 5.1 Update:
  • Find the 5.1 ZIP (don't have it, don't know where to is it and we are not allowed to post information about it because is a SOAK test, please don't ask)
  • Save it to your internal SD
  • Reboot your phone into bootloader
  • Once in bootloader select "Recovery" and your phone will show and android lying down with chest open.
  • Press power and volume up for at least three seconds, then release volume and power button.
  • When the dialog appers, select "Install zip", select the location and that's it.
Android 5.1 now is compatible with all the bands of XT1097, it means that after the update from 4.4.4 to 5.0 your signal is lost, but if you update straigh 5.0 to 5.1 your signal will be restored, don't know if this applies to all variants, please comment.

Firmware and modems
OK, if you are here you have 3 possibles scenarios.
1. You are on 4.4.4 (really?) and want to update to 5.1 official.
2. You are on a converted version of some variant, like XT1097, 1092, etc using this post early this year and you want to update to 5.1 OFFICIAL, because even you are receiving the OTA you are not able to install it for some error showing on the stock recovery.
3. You are on 5.0.x of some carrier (like me), your BL is unlocked and want to convert to the pure edition 5.1 official.

IMPORTANT. From 5.1 update, the modems included on the update are FULLY compatible with all models, XT1097, 1092 and 1093 and all carriers ,so, you don't have to worry about losing IMEI, signal or data.

SCENARIO 1, 2 and 3.
Download the ENTIRE SYSTEM of the 5.1 of this link
http://www.filefactory.com/folder/dd...show=25&page=1
The one we are going to use is the VICTARA_TMO_XT1095_5.1_LPE23.32-21.3_cid9_CFC.xml.zip

Thanks to @AGISCI and his post to provide the links. http://forum.xda-developers.com/moto...wares-t3148211

Extract all the files on the carpet where the ADB and FASTBOOT files are.
After that you will only have to put your phone on BOOTLOADER MODE, connect it to your PC and type this to check if your computer recognices your phone: fastboot devices and if you see the serial number of your phone you are ready to go.
By now you are going to flash all the files you need to be on 5.1 pure edition, you will loose all your partitions and root and all your mods.

NOTE. IF YOU HAVE EXPERIENCE FLASHING FILES AND WANT TO KEEP SOME PARTITIONS PLEASE REFER BELOW THIS CODE; IF YOU DONT HAVE IDEA WHAT I AM TALKING ABOUT FLASH THIS CODE

Code:
fastboot flash partition gpt.bin
fastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
fastboot flash logo logo.bin
fastboot flash boot boot.img
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img
fastboot flash system system.img
fastboot erase modemst1
fastboot erase modemst2
fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn
fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin
fastboot erase userdata (optional)
fastboot erase cache (optional)
fastboot reboot
Let me explain the files
fastboot flash partition gpt.bin - Will flash the new partition of the system and data to receive the new update, is not a mandatory flash, like some people are reporting, you just can skip this if you want, but I dont recommend if you are on 5.0.x
fastboot flash motoboot motoboot.img - The BL version 60.16, you can skip this for sure if you are on 5.0 and 4.4.4, but if you are on 5.0.x is a must-flash.
fastboot reboot-bootloader - reboot the bootloader
fastboot flash logo logo.bin - the boot logo, is optional in any case
fastboot flash boot boot.img - kernel, you have to flash it
fastboot flash recovery recovery.img - Stock recovery, you can skip it to keep the TWRP
fastboot flash system system.img - full 5.1 system, must flash
fastboot erase modemst1 - erase old baseband
fastboot erase modemst2- erase old baseband
fastboot flash fsg fsg.mbn - flash the new baseband, must flash
fastboot flash modem NON-HLOS.bin - flash the new baseband, must flash
fastboot erase userdata - optional for all users, but in order to avoid problems, must do it.
fastboot erase cache- optional for all users, but in order to avoid problems, must do it.
fastboot reboot - say no more.
After that your phone is now

Enjoy!!!



OLD FILES; JUST AS REFERENCE FOR NEXTEL MEXICO USERS.
Thanks to @samagas who upload the necessary files for Motorola XT1097 Nextel Mexico.
Here is the link post No.12
http://forum.xda-developers.com/show...1&postcount=12
The whole pack in ZIP, just flash it via TWRP and the modems only, just in case you forgot to backup.

thank you!
I think not, because you changed the Baseband, but untill a update arrives I am not complety sure.
In any case just flash again the baseband of 4.4.4 Pure edition, sideload or push the OTA of the new version of Lollipop to the SD and everything should be ok.

Motorola sells the xt1092 as pure edition too on the european motomaker sites

Yes, here in Latin America is the XT1097 pure edition too. The difference are the LTE bands as far I know. I been searching and i found that the first device to get the updates is the 1095 and the others "pure edition" later.
This guide is for those who don't want to wait for the update or like in my case are locked to a carrier.

The long wait was because there was a severe sms bug in lollipop, which needed to be analyzed and fixed before the update could continue. Nexus devices had the lollipop pulled because of this bug

I havent flashed anything yet (I decided to play a while with my now rooted and unblocked phone due to Lollipop not being fully compatible with stuff) but I did boot my moto with the openrecovery-twrp'''''.img and performed a backup. I also did the modem dump and I'm currently uploading both, the twrp backup and the modem stuff. Just in case anyone needs an ass saver. Im adding the links as soon as they finish being uploaded

One question, I know it is possible to dump the original recovery the same way as the modem files, I supose you just need to save it "sdcard/recovery.img" but, is it worth dumping? I mean I don't see anyone suggesting it or asking for it, is it not necesary?

1. Good my friend, if you have the TWRP backup of your Nextel fimware tell me were the links are because mine was corrupted and now I dont have the original file
2. Of course you can pull the original recovery the same way you pulled out the modem, in fact, you can pull the entire system that way, but in our case we only need the modem/baseband because flashing an entire new firmware makes you loose signal, and the modems for differents versions of models, like 1095, 97 or 92 are differents, but the recovery is the same.
