ubuntu touch preview walkthrough

With the release of the Ubuntu Touch preview, I flashed the beta software onto my Nexus 10 and Galaxy Nexus.  Below is a walkthrough of the operating system running on two of the four available devices.  After the video, if you feel like trying out the os yourself, the download links will be listed along with instructions to flash Ubuntu onto your device.

The following instructions are for devices that have an unlocked bootloader and a custom recovery installed.  Remember, we take no responsibility if you brick/run your device.

1) Download the correct device zip file and place it on your internal storage.
2) Download the phablet ARMHF zip file and place it on your internal storage.
3) Reboot into custom recovery.
4) Wipe data/cache.
5) Install the device zip.
6) Install the phablet ARMHF zip.
7) Reboot and you will boot into the Ubuntu Touch Preview.
