I keep getting this error after I run phablet-flash cdimage-touch -b

ERROR:phablet-flash:[Errno 2] No such file or directory: u'/home/dom/Downloads/phablet-flash/ubuntu-touch/20130808.lock'

IMHO The latest phablet-flash tool update creates way too many zero length lock files.

For each build directory in Downloads/phablet-flash/ubuntu-touch/, type the following:

touch Downloads/phablet-flash/ubuntu-touch/<build-date>.lock

eg. (for your example)

touch Downloads/phablet-flash/ubuntu-touch/20130808.lock

Note: This should not reoccur for any future downloads.
