Let us know about the apps. Planning to install it on my Nexus 7.
 
Where did you get ze ubuntus, their touch preview page doenst have any DL links
 
I don't see the directions on the site yet.
 
the build from ces leaked out. this isn't the official dev preview
 
Thanks!  I am waiting for this to install on my Nexus 7.  I am assuming I won't be able to install this on my VZW Galaxy Nexus?
 
Dude... Serious... I need SERIOUS information.... LOL
 
Ahhhh right righ the GNEX build. Well it looks like those of us who are waiting for the touch preview 11EST is the time it will be reselased according to the blogosphere
 
Images for Galaxy Nexus, Nexus 4, Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 are available. I picked G Nex because it was charged and I don't care if it works today.

I'm going back to bed now. Enough of this :P
 
+Doug DuCoté I will be shocked if it works with the VZW Nexus.  Hoping it does but I'm sure it won't.
 
What's are they hosting the files for this test build? Can someone be kind enough to shoot me a link. Since I'm driving thanks!
 
+Terry Saunders Everything ive seen says its going to work on the numbered family. So n4/n7/10. If this works as well as i hope i might have to buy a tablet to put it on
 
And apparently you need a *nix box to flash this. lovely.
 
And thats why carrier modification is bad
 
+Doug DuCoté also looks like i have to have ubuntu to install this.  Now I have to create a VM to do this.
 
Newbie here. I have some minor experience with ubuntu on desktop. I never was proficient with the terminal. It appears that the only way to flash this would be with Ubuntu installed on your desktop, which I don't. So some stupid questions :

1) These instructions will work even with a bootable disc, correct?

2) my Nexus is already has an unlocked bootloader and is rooted. I can skip step 2?

3) what is this bootstrap business?

Thanks in advance for helping out a fellow in advance
 
There are only 2 files that you need to flash, CWM or TWRP needed. Ubuntu is not needed to flash these on your Gnex.

http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=2078691 (In the OP) is what you need to do, step 4 and 5 basically. Links are there for the files.


Toro and toroplus (CDMA) will be able to use the Maguro (GSM) files listed above, but you won't be able to make/recieve calls and texts, obviously. Warning: No sound support, some people are saying wireless is slow. I wouldn't be using this as a daily driver yet but when it is more mature I will flash and try it out.
