Motorola issues Nexus 6 recall for AT&T users because it installed the wrong firmware

Well, that’s awkward. According to a report by Droid Life, AT&T stores are being asked to return early Nexus 6 stock because of a bug that causes random reboots and renders the device inoperable without a forced restart.

Motorola accepted blame for the issue earlier today, saying it delivered a small number of Nexus 6 devices to AT&T customers with faulty software. It has since corrected the issue, and all phones currently shipping should be okay – the company will provide replacements for affected users.
