Formatting the drive from within your internal n7 ubuntu installation is a little different than from ubuntu on pc because it is laid out a little different. The stick must be unmounted, formatted, then your good to go.

Instructions-

Insert usb drive and Open "disks". Towards the bottom, tbere is a bar with a square, a "-" and gears. Tap tbe square. That will unmount the drive. It will now be a "play" type symbol. To its right, tap the gears. Choose format. Use ext4 as the fs, and name it whatever you wish. Click format. When the confirmation pops up, tap format again. Wait for it to finish. All done! Reboot and install to your ext4 formatted disk with fewer problems and no size restriction.

When I try to boot ubuntu I get a message saying kexec-hardboot support is required. I thought the kexec-hardboot kernels in the op were only for android roms. Am I supposed to do something else to patch the ubuntu image?

Go into recovery and got to advanced-multiboot-list roms, choose ubuntu "userdata" and inject current boot. Providing you have already installed the correct kernel from the op.

Tassadar posted a link quite a ways back to the one he bought. It was on ebay I think. Personally, I use an external hdd, which is super fast.

After listing roms and selecting Ubuntu my only options are rename, delete, and re-patch init.
