I was trying "phablet-flash -b" but I got the following fail messages.

Starting new HTTP connection (1):
Retrying (0 attempts remain) after connection broken by 'error(110, 'Connection timed out')': /ubuntu-touch-preview/quantal/mwc-demo/quantal-ubuntu_stamp
Could not download build data from jenkins... bailing

I guess the download is blocked by my proxy, however, I have already export http_proxy=xxx and I can download the file via browser with the same proxy.

Any idea?

I just wget'ed the data myself (with proxy correctly set in http_proxy)

$ wget -r

and then

$ phablet-flash -p

It's a lot of extra downloading but until the phablet downloader can respect $http_proxy, it's their problem.
