I have nearly completed the install but got this message;

my tablet is an 8gig and I have a 4 gig SD card mounted. However,my internal storage shows only 850 megs available. The zip file for Ubuntu is a little over 650 megs. yes I know its a compressed file. Is there any way to get past this issue using my SD mounted card or the internal SD?

How about if I wipe the device and remove the android 4.0 –  user154723 May 20 '13 at 4:27
    
maybe I can use $ fastboot flashall -w –  user154723 May 20 '13 at 4:30
    
I'm guessing you have full disk encryption enabled and the 850 megs is your kernel staging area. –  hbdgaf May 20 '13 at 6:28
    
My guess is..I have missed a step somewhere. I will re-try the process being careful to observe each and every step. Thanks for the response. –  user154723 May 23 '13 at 1:35
    
It may be possible to use the command menu, from within Recovery Mode, but I don't have any documentation. Just the try the standard methods for now. –  david6 May 26 '13 at 3:54

BEFORE YOU STARTED:

I will assume you have a backup of any Android setup / content.


As you are about to overwrite Android image with Ubuntu Touch, then you should first do a factory reset OR just re-image the device with Android (using the recovery method given).

NOTE: I have loaded both phablet and desktop images to various Nexus 7 devices (both 8GB and 16GB). I have had no issues with either the phablet-tool (automated) or command-line (manual) methods.
