I have an old n7 (2012) with broken screen (mouse works, not touch) that I mainly use as a hotspot.

Since I need to use it for an app requiring android 4.4 or more, and mine is still at 4.2.2 (rooted, hotspot patched), which passages should I do to:

- install official update to 4.4.4 or 5.0.2
- install hotspot patch

Thx in advance!

I updated it for 5.1.1.
I can't check if it works since I dont use a Nexus 7 anymore.

What this zip changes:
-modified framework-res/res/values/arrays.xml to allow tethering
-framework-res/res/values/bools.xml prefer dual pane preferences set to true
-remove BasicSmsReceiver

In the attachments you will find the tethering mod and a zip to return to stock.

Hi! Please mod for 5.1.1! Last update... We don't have M :(
Don't be so sure that this will be the last...

Hi!
What about SMS patch for Android 5.1.1 Lollipop (LMY47V) ?

Sms support is already present on stock Lollipop.
Install an Sms app from playstore (like this one). Go to settings->more->default sms app (or sth like that) and select your app.
Dont forget to disable BasicSmsReceiver (or stop its notifications) unless you want 2 notifications for each message you get! Installing the above zip will remove it completely.

I can confirm wi-fi tethering works on LMY47V with this patch, thanks very much. USB tethering does not work, I seem to remember reading somewhere that the lollipop kernel is missing something but I can't remember what or where I read this.

Requires a kernel with RNDIS support. I think there is support for that on M-Kernel .
Bluetooth tethering shouldn't work either. Some changes need to be made to add the bt-pan service.

Here's mine;

Sent from my Nexus 7 3G
Was that a picture of a working dialler?

I still have my Nexus 7 on Kitkat 4.4.2, and I still have SMS via 8sms working, apparently. I didn't use it for that for a long time but my phone has died, so I've put the SIM in the Nexus.

Is there a way to dial a number, or can it only do SMS? It would be nice if I could dial the service number to get a balance (from Three Mobile), without visiting their website, if nothing else. The number is 444.

I can press the MOBILE button next to it in the contacts list in the People app, and the screen changes, then there's a dialling beep of some sort, but it just switches back again. That seems to be the case for any number - I can initiate an SMS, via 8sms, from there, but not a call.
