This question already has an answer here:

I am trying to install Ubuntu on a Galaxy Nexus, however the instructions at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install look like there is an assumption it is being done from a Ubuntu workstation. I am doing this from a Macbook Pro. I have the adb and fastboot programs.

In step 4 it says to run the command phablet-flash -b. I am assuming this is a script which uses fastboot -b <base_addr> to specify a custom kernel base address. What are the actual steps being used here? Am I safe to assume I can accomplish the same thing with the following commands?

fastboot flash bootloader quantal-preinstalled-boot-armel+maguro.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
(wait for fastboot mode to return)
fastboot flash boot ./quantal-preinstalled-armel+maguro/boot.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
(wait for fastboot mode to return)
fastboot flash recovery quantal-preinstalled-recovery-armel+maguro.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
(wait for fastboot mode to return)
fastboot flash system quantal-preinstalled-system-armel+maguro.img
fastboot reboot-bootloader
