Default [Q] Installing ubuntu

FIRST OF ALL MY APOLOGIES IF IM IN AN INAPPROPRIATE FORUM. IM A NOVICE.
I have a chinese tablet rockchip rk3026. I have a windows laptop only. I have rooted the tablet using some rooting software (i cant read chinese so i dont know the name)
I have also installed (after reading through several posts) TWRP and busybox.
I tried to donwload ubuntu touch 14.10 - there are no zipfiles so i downloaded img files and tar.gz
Now at this juncture i need the expert help.
If someone can walkthrough the steps on how to make my tab recognizable in the windows and how to install the img files in the tablet.
Thanks in advance for your time.

First of all, welcome to XDA.

I'm sorry to tell you but you won't be able to install Ubuntu Touch on that device if you don't port it. ROMs for one device don't work on another one. If you want to run Ubuntu on your tablet, you need to get a supported device. Additionally, img files cannot be flashed in the recovery like zip files.
