Boot R32.5.0 from external NVMe device stuck


I compressed and copied rootfs to the partition in Xavier’s nvme.
Use sudo ./ jetson-xavier external command to update the system.
It is found that the graphical interface freezes after the user name and password are set after the system is turned on and cannot enter the system. After a forced restart, it prompts to reset the parameters and user name and password.
Is the rootfs file permission problem or the method I used is wrong.
And I found that the file that records PARTUUID has changed from bootloader/l4t-rootfs-uuid.txt to bootloader/l4t-rootfs-uuid.txt_ext.

Let us check. Thanks for report.


Could you try to follow the example (NVMe+Xavier NX) from Jetson/L4T/Boot From External Device -

In this method, we check the UUID an operate on device. Thus, it may prevent the UUID change problem.

After “sudo ./ jetson-xavier external”, the device can enter the interface for setting language, time zone, user name, etc., indicating that the file system on the corresponding UUID on nvme has been activated.
