Hi Nvidia teams,
We have a technical problem with the board. The board we received pre-flashed with Drivesolfware 10.0, however project based on ROS, and we wanted to flash the board with DriveOS 5.2 (latest version) and drivework 3.5 which in the documents stated that support ROS. Unfortunately, we face a big issue with this update matrix.

We would like to know how to convert the DriveSolfware 10.0 to DriveOS 5.2 and drivework3.5
We tried to reflash the board but when the solfware stated that DriveOS 5.2 completed flashing but the device won’t boot afterward. Only if we flashed back to D.S 10.0 then device working normally.
Thank you!

Hi @phamminhhieu ,

After flashing DRIVE OS 5.2.0 and power on the target device, can you see messages on UART (see Accessing the SoC from UART).
Also, from DRIVE OS 5.2.0 some packages aren’t installed by default. You can take a look at Finalize DRIVE AGX System Setup.

How do you connect the host PC to a UART connection with the dev kit?
Is the connector available with the board?

Dear @aswb,
You can access target via serial connection from host using USB A-A wire. You can connect one end to host and other end to debug USB port on target. You may use minicom to connect to target.
