Just want to know how you manually created /cache/system folder?

I am also getting the two errors.

1) /cache/system - No such file or directory
2)android-recovery.img is not a correct image.

Can u (anyone) please tell me how to solve these two errors while installing ubuntu on androiderrors pic

Most likely not, unless somebody has made Ubuntu touch to work with HTC. I would look and ask the guys over at ubport and become a part of their community.
They will be able to answer all your questions concerning dual boot and if it's possible on your device. If you want to boot up Linux inside android, with a desktop UI, you should check out UserLand app. They also have a slackgroup.

For anyone who wants to try out the new Ubuntu Touch dual-boot, here's how (if your device isn't supported yet):

1. Download and install the attached apk.

2. Edit your build.prop (I recommend using an build.prop editor from the Play Store, but you can also do it manually)
Change the three original lines to look like this:
ro.product.model=Nexus 4

3. Reboot into Ubuntu Touch!

Warning: I own an Optimus G, very similar to the Nexus 4. As devices vary, so will compatibility. There are no promises that it will work well for all devices and I take no responsibility if something goes wrong, though I'm willing to help out if it does.

Edit: Feel free to try on your device, but will work best/only on Nexus 4/Optimus G variants

I am trying to get the dual boot installer to work but it just says "no available channels" with the Install Ubuntu button disabled. I followed the steps on here along with the tutorial from the Ubuntu website exactly and I'm using a Nexus 4. It still doesn't work.
