Is an OTA for Lollipop coming from Sprint for the M7? I kind of doubt that, but it would be nice. Do you have the latest firmware, radio, and a very young version of TWRP installed? Sorry, I don't want to assume anything, but for 5.0 you need to be more than just unlocked.

There are no steps I'm forgetting? Do I need to update something else since I'll be going from 4.4.2 to 5.0? Firmware, hboot anything?
You have the latest firmware. Your steps are missing a wipe (factory reset is best), and you do you know you have to install gapps with this ROM, right?
