Just tried following the instructions and there appears to be an error in the build instructions. I think you meant this:

built using:

wget http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/daily-preinstalled/current/xenial-preinstalled-core-armhf.raspi2.kernel.snap
wget http://cdimage.ubuntu.com/ubuntu-core/daily-preinstalled/current/xenial-preinstalled-core-armhf.os.snap
wget http://people.canonical.com/~ogra/snappy/all-snaps/rpi3/canonical-pi2_3.2_all.snap
wget http://people.canonical.com/~mvo/all-snaps/ubuntu-device-flash

sudo ../ubuntu-device-flash core rolling --channel edge \
    -o rpi3-all-snap.img --gadget canonical-pi2_3.2_all.snap \
        --kernel xenial-preinstalled-core-armhf.raspi2.kernel.snap \
        --os xenial-preinstalled-core-armhf.os.snap
Note the --gadget target should point to the canonical-pi2_3.2.snap gadget that was downloaded?

The --gadget target is a little confusing though. Just for clarification, the pi2 gadget is being using for the pi3?

i just uploaded a new gadget that makes the rpi3 work with our rpi2 image. we are currently working on a release so with the next 16.04 image this should be available to everyone. if you can not wait, i created an experimental/unofficial image at [1]; it also has build instructions in the README file in case you want to build your own...

thanks a lot to ppisati for the help to getting this to work :)
