During its quarterly earnings call this week, Google confirmed that it has seen a “decline in Nexus” sales in recent months. The fall is being attributed by some to the Nexus 6, which couples a super-sized display with a high price tag.

The original Moto G Google Play Edition is getting Google’s latest Android 5.1 Lollipop software. The update is rolling out now over-the-air, and it brings a number of new features and plenty of nice improvements.

Lollipop’s memory leak has been plaguing Nexus users since Android 5.0 was released late last year, and despite several updates since then, Google has failed to fix it. Fortunately, third-party developers have stepped in with a patch.

The tweak is intended for devices running AOSP ROMs based on Android 5.0 and up, and it’s available on rooted devices running the Xposed framework.

The nasty memory leak that has plagued Lollipop since the platform’s debut last fall is still lingering in the latest Android 5.1 release, according to some reports, but Google says it already has a fix for it.

The only problem is, it doesn’t yet know when it will be available to the public.
