Wifi Hotspot works perfect . But you have to make room on your system partition before flashing. I deleted Maps and Chrome cuz you use the updates anyway.

After flashing 5.02 only 1 meg is free on your system partition. After rooting .4 megs are free. You cannot flash a 5 meg zip to a 0.4 meg partition.

Ok restore your backups and I'll take a look see what I can find.
Update For the Nexus 7 Wi-Fi Lollipop 5.0.2
See above post for details. I decided to add this post instead of just editing the past above, and the reason is to make this point: I've found that it is better to Wipe Cache after flashing this. Otherwise system apps will force close. TWRP gives you the option to Wipe Cache/Dalvik right after flashing the zip. I suggest you use that option and wipe cache. This will trigger the Android is upgrading optimizing apps dialog, which in retrospect makes sense to bring the apps in line with the new framework.
Could you mind to delete the link of LRG22? Many of us have infinite bootlooooooping

I m using Tilapia, should I need to flash 2b-N72012Wifi-5.0.2-Hotspotmod-with3Gmodem? Is it safe? GuyAdams' one make mine bootlooooping
almdroid's solution works. You have to free up space in your system partition. Download the Quick System Info PRO app and run it. You'll see a field named 'System Storage'. You should have at least 6MB+ free to flash the zip GuyAdams' made. You'll have to downgrade/uninstall updates on one or more of your GApps (Maps, Chrome, GMail, etc.) to free the space. Check your Quick System Info PRO app again to see if you have the required space before flashing the zip.
After flashing, update your GApps again.
I just flashed Lollipop and SMS Wifi Tethering patch and wondered why Hangouts does not show or send SMS's despite being the default app. It seems this feature is disabled. Correct if I'm wrong.
SMS still works with other SMS clients.
"Uninstall updates" won't do the trick. All that does is remove the updated version from your data partition while leaving the one that's taking up space in your system partition.
What you'd want to do is pick one of those apps that has already been updated (so there is a copy of the newest apk in /data/app) and then remove its apk from /system/app. If Titanium Backup is working well enough for you, you could try "Convert to user app" which will remove it from /system while ensuring it remains operational in /data.
