Cannot Clone TX2

I’ve been able to save and restore the image of a TX2 using the instructions here:

However, I have obtained another TX2 and tried to clone it with the image from the first. The copying of the image seems to happen without error, but the TX2 does not boot.

Is there any known issue about putting an image from one TX2 to another? I recall reading that the APP partition may be too large.

Any ideas?


The specs of my system:NVIDIA Jetson TX2

L4T 28.2.1 [ JetPack 3.2.1 ]
Board: t186ref
Ubuntu 16.04 LTS
Kernel Version: 4.4.38-tegra
CUDA 9.0.252

The new Jetson must have the same release version as the old one. For example, a Jetson shipping with R28.1 can’t use a rootfs from R28.2.1. Try to first flash the new Jetson with the same release before restoring rootfs into it (you might be able to both flash a new release and use the clone at the same time, but simplify while testing…just flash normally, and do the rootfs flash as a second step).
