I don't know what to do next.. a few days ago I accidentally installed Ubuntu 13.04 and restored it back to android. After that I installed Ubuntu Touch with this guide and I followed every step! https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install

It worked, but the Ubuntu touch was something like a demo -> back to android again. I rooted android.

Today: I wanted to install Ubuntu Touch again with

phablet-flash -l

for a daily non-demo build ->

adbd cannot run as root in production builds

Then I thought, maybe because it's rooted -> I reinstalled the factory image 4.2.2, locked the device, unlocked it again -> The same error.

What's the problem here?

My setup: A fresh installed Ubuntu 12.10 with VMware Tools on VMware player like I did it the first time.

This Question didn't help. Galaxy Nexus-adbd cannot run as root in production builds
