I installed the Ubuntu Touch on my Galaxy Nexus by flashing it thru recovery, but I can't transfer files from my computer to it. Right now I'm in a Windows environment (Windows 8) and I don't want to install Ubuntu just to transfer files. Is there something I can do to transfer them (besides using adb push)?
Right now my computer detects my Ubuntu Touch phone like this:

If I try to create folders inside this folder or try to paste anything it says I don't have permission. Is there something I'm missing?

What version of Windows? What version of MTP does this support? –  david6 Oct 23 '13 at 7:39
It is specified on the question (Windows 8). I'm assuming both Windows and Ubuntu Touch should support a compatible version, since I saw here that Ubuntu Touch for Galaxy Nexus now supports MTP. –  Valmir Junior Oct 23 '13 at 14:44
