What happens if you run 'adb shell id -ru' ?

I got this error when I tried to make an ubuntu touch image writeable (to convert to plasma-mobile)

% phablet-config writable-image

Done. Have fun with it.

I'm no longer interested in any product of Canonical.

Please let someone else take over this package. I had to make some PKGBUILD modifications.
