Following this developer.ubuntu.com guide I flashed my Nexus 7 via # ubuntu-device-flash --channel=trusty --bootstrap, got this [1] output, but after rebooting the following from the Install Ubuntu section doesn't happen here:

Then, the parts of the images are deployed to the device. Ubuntu is deployed to the devices as a “recovery” image. Then, the device boots from the recovery image and installs Ubuntu as the normal OS. Finally, the device boots into Ubuntu for devices.

It only boots into the normal bootloader, and Ubuntu is only present when I select "Recovery mode". This menu has an "-install zip" option where I guess I must continue, but I can not find out where I would find the relevant zip-file or how to apply it exactly. I can see the device though and use adb .. to reboot or start a shell.

Please note that there is only limited device support for Ubuntu Touch:

What hardware does Ubuntu Touch support?

also http://developer.ubuntu.com/start/ubuntu-for-devices/devices/

  • I noticed that a grouper image is only present here system-image.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-touch/trusty but not for utopic/ or devel/. But if it is there, should it not at least install? Is there a way to revert to a state when this device was still supported? Or manually copy files over, given I have an adb shell? – finite graygreen Aug 11 '14 at 21:16
