I tried to install ubuntu phone on my galaxy nexus, but during the process the pc crashed. When i tried to boot up the phone again it shows the google-sign, and then it turns black :( I have tried to go to recovery mode, and followed the steps on how to install ubuntu phone manually, but i don't have an sd-card. Is it possible to use the abd sidelode? i have tried to write:

adb sideload <>

but I only get the message:

bash: (filename): No such a file or directory

What am I supposed to do now? Is my phone totaly "dead"?

Please help! I know I am doing this at my own risk...

I am also getting the message: bash: syntax error near unexpected token 'newline' – user161229 May 23 '13 at 17:19
To clarify, sdcard is internal storage in Android land. – david6 May 26 '13 at 4:08

If you damaged the state of the Android device during an attempt to install, then you first need to recover to a known state.

Re-install the Galaxy Nexus firmware, taking care to install the correct one. (there are several to choose from.) < Factory Images for Nexus Devices
