BSP Version Mismatch in SDKManager setup

Upon trying to setup Jetpack 5.0.2 via SDK manager and MicroUSB connection on my Jetson Xavier NX development board at the very end of the setup I get the following message:

BSP Version Mismatch

Your device BSP image version is incompatible with the software version you are trying to install. Please flash your device with the right BSP version and try to re-install.

Terminal window also shows that multimedia target component also seems to have failed to install. Why is this?

Are you on VM or host PC with Ubuntu 20.04?

Could you attach the SDKM log as reference?

Hi dusanix,

Please use below command to check your BSP image version on Xavier-NX first:
$ head -1 /etc/nv_tegra_release

If your BSP image version is not R35.1.0, please flash JetPack-5.0.2 image first and install all components.

I don’t have the sdkm log as a reference anymore, since I have managed to flash it but it took enormous effort.

My BSP version is #35 Revision 1 (I guess that’s 35.1? please confirm)

I have done it by:

  1. using flash.sh script which stopped working after 2hrs at which point I have canceled it (but it appears to have done something to it, not sure what can you please advise?)
  2. removing SD card from the slot (since I was trying to install it on NVMe)

All in all, the flashing process seemed very unreliable with many errors (unfortunately I didn’t collect them all) but toddpack seems to have had same issues setting it up check it here Nvidia 5.0.2 NX

Hi dusanix,

Are you using SDK Manager to install JetPack-5.0.2 on your Xavier-NX?
If you want to install on NVMe, the storage device please select NVMe.

Yes, I have been using SDK Manager and selecting NVMe as the storage device.

Hi dusanix,

Please tar sdkm logs for check with below path:
/home/<username>/.nvsdkm

Hi All,

I too facing the same problem. Please let me know the resolution of this if you have resolved this issue?
I m also using SDK manager to flash and install JDK components.

My issue:

Thanks
