Disabling GUI and enabling multi-user.target as the default mode - Not working on Jetson Orin NX with BSP version L4TR35.3.1

Hi,

Tried below methods for getting the working virtual terminal over HDMI by disabling GUI mode and enabling multi-user.target as the default mode.

  1. I used the following command for booting to console as default:
    sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target
    when I used this command and rebooted the Orin NX, no terminal appears.

  2. Tried pressing Ctrl+Alt+F1, Ctrl+Alt+F2 to bring up a terminal login. No terminal appears.

In both the cases I just get black screen (no Video signal).

• Hardware Platform (Jetson Orin NX)
• JetPack Version 5.1.1

It’s not supported on L4T 35.x, and please try this after upgrading to L4T 36.x:
