Dual-boot Android and Ubuntu on Nexus Device

Step by step guide on how to install Ubuntu touch to be able to Dual Boot with Android on any of your Nexus Device. I have tested this on my google nexus 4 running android 4.4.2 KitKat. The process mainly has 2 parts:

1. Rooting your nexus device. 
2. Installing Ubuntu Dual Boot App.

The rooting procedure shown in the above tutorial will work for all the nexus devices with a number of Android flavours -- including stock releases and CyanogenMod -- for Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and up. If you have already rooted your nexus device, feel free to the jump to the part where i flash the ubuntu installer app (timeline below).
