Hello everybody,

I'm used to flashing but I'm not a dev' and I think we are many who could be interested by this :

So I saw this article https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Touch/Install on how to install Ubuntu Touch on our old but still good galaxy nexus.

And I wonder : is it possible to flash img through recovery or do we have to follow all the tutorial ? because I don't feel very confident about doing it and I also wanted to share it with others

No you cant flash it through recovery. You need to do it with fastboot. It is safe though. You can always go back to android. I believe there is a thread somewhere around here that shows you how to dual boot android and ubuntu.

Huh? I swear I had installed Ubuntu Touch (the first stable version back in November) via recovery, by flashing a global ZIP and a device-specific ZIP.
