I followed the instructions from here: enter link description here to install Ubuntu Touch manually on my Nexus 4. However the device will not boot past the Google screen (up to 10 minutes). Is this normal?

P.S. I am using a Mac and flashed files using Terminal and Fastboot/ADB commands.

That sounds overly long. From the look of it though, those manual instructions cover installing the old cdimage-touch based images rather than the newer upgradeable ubuntu-system images. So you might be better off trying to get phablet-flash working (possibly through a VM?) –  James Henstridge Oct 18 '13 at 1:32
Hi James, error was on my end! I missed the armhl zip file. All is well now. –  thecrucible Oct 20 '13 at 19:31
