If you are having issues, and have already attempted loading (or have previous daily image), then try reverting to a "fresh install".

Use the automated method:

phablet-flash -d maguro -b


If you can't successfully install Ubuntu Touch, first return the device to a known state.

eg. Restore factory Android image (per first link above).
