i was able to get through all of the steps until i went to type phablet-flash -b into the termial. i agreed with the terms saying yes and got the following response:

Starting new HTTP connection (1): Download directory set to /home/ubuntu/Downloads/phablet-flash/95 Device detected as * daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 * * daemon started successfully * Unsupported device, autodetect fails device

what can i do from here? (i have a verizon samsung galaxy nexus running android)

It is not supported. Wait till the full version comes out. – user68186 Feb 21 '13 at 20:43

That happened to me first time too. It worked when I unplugged my device (Galaxy Nexus), plugged it back in and just ran phablet-flash -b again.

EDIT - Actually, I could be wrong but I believe the Verizon version is the CDMA variant and therefore unsupported. Easiest way to find out is to go to Google Maps, Settings and About. Under Device there it should give you your device name - afraid if this isn't takju or yakju you're out of luck.
