You guys can't use the 5.1 ota zip to update because you'd need to be on the latest 5.0.2 soak test update (which wasn't captured by anyone). It's best to wait till moto releases the final ota.
I think the android version before the update doesn't matter, and if it does, you can do a TWRP BACKUP!

The update patches the older file to update it to a newer version, this happens only if you were on a particular s/w version. The 3rd soak update was never captured by anyone. So, if you're not on the latest 5.0.2 update released by motorola the update fails to install on your device.

I am on kitkat 4.4.4. I have my moto e rooted. How would I go about installing the ota lollipop update when I get it? Will it install while it is rooted or fail? Should I unroot it first before install?

Has anybody done this yet with a rooted phone?

well i flashed 4.4.4 and kept the ota of 5.0.2 on my storage and now its being updated to 5.0.2

i did his because in the pics uploaded by op u can see in change logs as : [or see the attachments]
it updates a few bugs of your device on lollipop which clearly indicates that we need to be on 5.0.2 to get official update (i wonder about the ppl who havent rooted and yet on 4.4.4 - those who dunno even about xda :p )

well lets c ....some1 is sure to capture the zip :)

To receive the final 5.1 update, you need to be on 4.4.4. Flash the stock ROM, no modifications to any system files. If you've already updated to the leaked soak test versions, you'll have to wail till a factory image is released. Just sit back and relax. Lollipop is coming soon.

If someone got the update to 5.1, he can make a twrp backup of system and boot, and everybody could get the update!
