Using phablet-tools to install raring image

Posted:   |  More posts about ubuntu phablet

raring images have been made available on cdimage, while they are not as solid as the quantal ones, you can still use them and start figuring out what needs fixing or how.

To get the image you can manually install it by downloading the image and then pushing it to the device like:

adb push /sdcard/
adb reboot recovery

Alternatively you can use an alternate settings file like this one:
