Galaxy Nexus with 4.3 is seen offline inside VirtualBox/Ubuntu 14.04

I'm trying to access a Galaxy Nexus hooked up to a Windows machine through VirtualBox running Ubuntu 14.04.
I followed this tutorial:, but the devices keeps showing offline:
adb devices
List of devices attached
0146B5681401101C offline

Here is what lsusb gives me:
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 04e8:6860 Samsung Electronics Co., Ltd GT-I9100 Phone [Galaxy S II], GT-I9300 Phone [Galaxy S III], GT-P7500 [Galaxy Tab 10.1]
When I don't run VB, windows adb gives me:
adb devices
List of devices attached
* daemon not running. starting it now on port 5037 *
* daemon started successfully *
0146B5681401101C device

Any idea?

I know this doesn't answer your question but I will say I often have had issues using a USB device through a virtual machine. My best suggestion is to set up a dual boot environment or just stick with a single operating system.
But ideas on how to fix is probably a permission problem, be sure you have the required permissions set up in advance
