So I just finished flashing today's new Ubuntu Touch Preview to my WiFi-only Nexus 7 (nakasi), however it freezes at the lockscreen and refuses to let me get any further. The clock moves, & I'm able to lock/unlock the tablet, but everything else appears to be frozen.

Any advice? Should I just flash Android 4.2.2 back on it & try again?

same happened to me. swipe left to right from the extreme left edge of the screen. you should see the application bar appear from left.

Ah, thank you so much! Can't believe I didn't notice this at first; it works now. Cheers! – user1519314 Feb 21 '13 at 21:42

The actual way to unlock it seems to be swiping from the right edge to the left. That returns you to the most recent screen/app you were on.
