Cannot flash jetpack 5/L4T 34.1

Ive been trying to flash my Xavier devkit with the new JP5 release since we are still waiting on our Orin and its not working. Ive tried the jetson-xavier and jetson-agx-xavier-devkit configs and get the same error each time. No luck flashing through SDK manager either. I have the early access version from a few months ago and it flashes just fine.

My host machine is running ubuntu 18.04 and I did run ./apply_binaries. all permissions are good.
My complete flash command is sudo ./flash.sh jetson-xavier mmcblk0p1.

I get the infamous and unhelpful error 8 at the end. The only other “error” I could find is one line where gzip is trying to extract the already uncompressed kernel for some reason. I looked through flash.sh and couldnt find any references to tar,gzip or the kernel image that make sense for this.
The error is gzip: /home/xxx/Projects/L4T5/Linux_for_Tegra/kernel/Image: not in gzip format
The complete flash log is attached.

Edit: also tried it on ubuntu 20.04 and had the same problems

Hi,

Could you also share the uart log from device when flash got stuck?

Sure, Looks like there is some error codes in the output:

Hi,

Is jetpack 4.6 still able to flash this board?

If so, could you also share the uart log?

Well… Its my own fault. I have 12 and 24V power supplies on my desk and it was running off of the 24V one. I switched over to 12V and it worked. Somehow I managed to not notice that.
