The Nexus 7 should have its own build when they release the tablet version. I dont think thats too far from now.

EDIT: Actually, Ubuntu might already have it available for the Nexus 7. According to some news sites, it should have been available the same time as the phone OS.

Actually, I think installing on the N7 is the same method as the phones.

Mai bad. I mean, data is enabled in all ways that I can enable it. As in once the GSM version supports data, this one will too if it makes you feel any better.

EDIT: No data as it won't have data on the GSM version. That's not because I messed up, it's because Ubuntu doesn't support it yet.

Does this mean no phone calls or texts either?

It SHOULD with that test zip. I haven't verified, though I put in the work that should be needed. It's not for "normal people" it's for developers. It's by no means ready to be used as a phone at all at this point (UbuntuOS on a phone as a whole, not just this port). If you want to try it out, it is limited, but it's enough for developers to get apps ready for the upcoming full release which I'll re-port back to our devices.

I tried the toro test2 zip, it made things worse unfortunately :/

Calls and SMS don't work, at least outgoing, the buttons to call and send are like pushed in... Same with camera. It took about a minute for the phone to realize it was plugged in, and sound settings is showing nothing. Still have WiFi though!

Thanks for the effort, if you sorta teach me what you're doing and how you're tweaking, I'll help, I want to get into this stuff, just gone done with a hackintosh adventure, good stuff lol.

When you re-flashed, did you flash both the test zip and the "phablet" zip again or just the test zip?

Default No Go

Flashed updated zip on GNex, No go. I got the phoen booted up.
But nothing after that. Notification bar won't pull down. I don't see anything on home screen
except a Circle with text 14 new tweets.
Oh well..

That's unfortunate. Well, my method was to modify the /system/build.prop to add in the lines that we needed, and then to merge these files in http://ompldr.org/vaGpueQ/files4.2.2.zip

It worked for 4.2.2 to the toro, not sure why that didn't work. There are screenshots in there of where the files should go, minus the builh.prop tweaks. I used this in order to open and re-zip everything http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=633246
