Can not flash 4G nano,please help, thanks

I got two nano module, 4G & 8G

  1. use a shell script flash 8G succesfully.
  2. use the same cmd to flash 4G module, but failed.
    error: Top caller module: MSS, error module: MSS, reason: 0x12, aux_info: 0x01
    flash_orin_nx-qskj-20230914173221.log (233.7 KB)
    flash_orin_serialLog.txt (24.9 KB)
    I want to know how can i modify cmd scritp to flash it

thanks for reply.
I use two cmds, both failed when flash 4G module:
1)sudo ./ --no-systemimg -c bootloader/t186ref/cfg/flash_t234_qspi.xml qskj-orin-nx-dev internal
2)sudo ./tools/kernel_flash/ -S 118GiB --external-device nvme0n1p1
-c tools/kernel_flash/flash_l4t_external.xml -p “-c bootloader/t186ref/cfg/flash_t234_qspi.xml”
–showlogs --network usb0 qskj-orin-nx-dev internal

attachment is qskj-orin-nx-dev.conf
qskj-orin-nx-dev.conf (3.9 KB)

What is the jetpack release in use here?

latest version: 35.4.1

Please also share full host side log.

And only need to try initrd flash command. No need to try

Do you have orin nano devkit on your side?

full host side log had upload top with time.

I had a plink C11 board now, and can use it to flash now.

Please also share your successful flash host and uart log on that plink board. BTW, I mean orin nano 4gb case. Not 8gb.

For I had create the img to flash, so just running cmd:

  1. swith to root user

  2. ./tools/kernel_flash/ --flash-only --external-device nvme0n1p1
    -c tools/kernel_flash/flash_l4t_external.xml -p “-c bootloader/t186ref/cfg/flash_t234_qspi.xml”
    –showlogs --network usb0 qskj-orin-nx-dev internal
    module can not reboot successfully, and report the same error log now.

  3. the log I mentioned is 4G failed log, include host & uart log.

  4. I tried again with 8G module, it happened the same error with 4G module now.

here is the 8G module flash successful log.
flash_orin_nx-qskj-20230914170226.log (267.7 KB)


幾個問題, 我這邊也用中文說明一下以免前面沒弄清楚

  1. 請問你這個問題是不是一定得用–flash-only才能打到? 我的意思是Orin Nano 8GB 的image不能直接用在Orin Nano 4GB的module上

  2. Orin 8GB module的log沒有太大的幫助. 我只想請問你那邊到底有沒有任何一個case可以讓Orin Nano 4GB flash成功?

Few questions to clarify

  1. Does this issue have to be reproduced with “–flash-only” parameter? I mean Orin Nano 8GB image cannot be used to Orin Nano 4gb directly.

  2. You don’t need to share the log of 8GB module. I only want to ask do you have any successful flash and boot case on 4GB module on your side?

  1. orin nano 8G 的哪些image与nano 4G的不通用? 之前plink告诉我说与orin nx都是通用的
    flash-only和full flash一样都会出现
  2. 4G module第一次拿到,就一个,都不成功


通用的意思只有說"orin-nano-devkit.conf"這個檔案可以燒所有的orin nano/nx.
但你沒辦法先 “–no-flash” 建出一個orin 8gb image然後又拿去給4gb module燒錄

4G module第一次拿到,就一个,都不成功


已经用no-flash使用.conf创建Image进行了测试, 但是仍然有一样的错误

I can use no-flash to create a Image for 4G module, and had tried.
but happened the same error




sudo ./tools/kernel_flash/ -S 118GiB --external-device nvme0n1p1
-c tools/kernel_flash/flash_l4t_external.xml -p “-c bootloader/t186ref/cfg/flash_t234_qspi.xml”
–showlogs --network usb0 qskj-orin-nx-dev internal

你前面這個, -S拿掉 先不要加那個.

这个命令我们用来烧写Orin NX是正常的




基本上我們這裡所有的測試項目都得在NV devkit上面測試才能決定是不是真的是module損壞

如果你沒有devkit驗證, 請你聯絡Plink跟他們反應這個問題.
