Any Custom Recovery had problems mounting SD/Partitions making flashing roms, zips, ect a problem.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY MISFORTUNE YOU RECEIVE BY APPLYING ANY INFO PAST THIS POINT. YOU TAKE SOLE RESPONSIBILITY FOR YOUR ACTION AND NO ONE HERE BUT YOURSELF IS ACCOUNTABLE.
I have included both LTE (DEB) and WIFI(FLO) setups that are currently working and are confirmed working by XDA members here. Apply based on your device. This works for both 5.0.1 and 5.0.2. ADB or Wugs program is sufficient enough to complete this task.

The only way so far to root tab is to use cf-auto root. Google it and follow directions.
Download recovery img and place into location where you ADB resides (or leave in download folder and open CMD in downloads for global ADB users)
make sure ADB is working and confirm that you Nexus is recognized
Code: adb devices
adb reboot bootloader

From this point your are good to go. Be advised flashing roms has a very particular setup that needs to be followed, reported by several members. I will show below
Wugs Nexus Toolkit
Download your recovery image
- Open Wugs Nexus Toolkit
- Setup device preference
- Go into advance
- Click flash recovery
- choose recovery image file
- Let toolkit do its thing and when complete click boot recovery to confirm everything went ok
Use cf-auto root to root your tab. Google it as it not hard to find. Once you confirmed root you can then download your image file on device and use flashify, TRWP Manager, (anything you can flash recovery on device)
Once root is confirmed use Flashify to select recovery image to flash. Once flash is complete boot into recovery by any means. confirm no error are present.
When installing any ROM disable "inject multirom after installation" & after installation just hit reboot system (don't hit "MultiROM: Inject curr. Boot sector) once you hit reboot you should be fine!

Good Luck and hope everything works out.
