I'm loving 5.0.2 on my N7, face-unlock doesn't work, but everything else is way faster and smoother than it was on 4.4.4.
I have recently updated the system and I must admit lollipop indeed sucks... I highly recommend anyone who is tempted to update to stick with KitKat

The device will show its gps location on the map if the thief hasn't signed out of the account. If he has, I'm afraid you have lost your tablet!
Lollipop update for N7 2013 LTE is now available OTA, it's 5.0.2 version. BTW I'm from the Philippines . Currently downloading, been waiting for this for a loooong time. Hope it's worth the wait.
popa, 31 Jan 2015can anyone who get 5.0.2 update tell us about its experience espicially the battery changes plz ?? Lollipop sucks, my n7 is slower now, Kit Kat is the best OS for this tablet. You should wait until google releases 5.1 update, cause 5.0 (5.0.1 and 5.0.2 too)have a lot of bugs, ram issues and there is no much good stock android experience, all of the smoothness somewhere has gone!
My husband bought one of these for his our son. It was stolen from his backpack and I am wondering if there is a Gps chip in it to hopefully track it. Can anyone help me with useful information abt this specific device if any and how it works..Pleezzz.Thank you
can anyone who get 5.0.2 update tell us about its experience espicially the battery changes plz ??
Had it for a while and have lollipop it is good and useful 😺
can anyone who installed lollipop tell us about it like its pros & cons and if we should install it or wait till another update ????
Fed of Google's negligence for Lollipop update for N7 2013 LTE, installed Cyanogen Mod 12 (device code name deb).
Easy Quick Steps
1) Unlock Bootloader (Nexus Root Toolkit)
2) Install Clockwork Mod (Nexus Root Toolkit)
3) Make Nandroid Backup from your new recovery for safety.
4) Download CM12 Nightly(deb) and GAPPS keep it on your device.
5) Boot into recovery, wipe cache n all
6) Install zip - first CM12 nightly (should be very quick)
7) Install zip - then Gapps
8) Reboot and done :)
With CM12 - everything's working but GPS. Cellular with LTE working :)

Google isn't worried about updating the N7 2013 LTE. If you want lollipop you'll need to root, twrp recovery and install the LL 5.0.1 ROM for codename deb. Also be sure to flash the "flo" 4.04 boot loader before flashing the ROM. We don't even have factory lollipop for the N7 2013 LTE in the USA. Google doesn't give a flying f***!
Do not install lolipop. My tablet became imposible to use, browsers crash, battery drains like crazy, it takes around 2 seconds for the screen to start, etc. Got 5.0.2 yesterday and some problems are gone, but better wait for 5.1
