Do I need Jetpack after installing Jetson Nano Developer Kit SD Card Image?

I have a Jetson Nano which recently acquired the developer kit SD card image in which I followed in this official article. There were no problems in installing, but when I try to attach my Waveshare 5.5 inch 1440x2560 LCD USB Capacitive Touch Screen, the display orientation is not working properly (Multiple displays on wrong orientation).

I’ve been dealing with this problem for more than a week now. Configuring xorg files, adjusting settings, etc.

Recently I read a post about the Jetpack SDK, which may be the solution for my problem. I’ve tried every other solution to download the SDK, from downgrading my Ubuntu to 20.04, using Docker for SDK Manager Ubuntu 18.04, and using WSL Ubuntu 18.04. None of it is working for me.

I then stumbled upon this YouTube tutorial and it says I don’t need to install the Jetpack since it is already installed on the card image.

So, do I really need to install Jetpack after installing the Jetson Nano Developer Kit SD Card Image? Will Jetpack really solve my problem?


JetPack SDK is already included in the SD card image, so you don’t need to manually install it.
For the orientation issue, please check with Waveshare about the compatibility, or try other screens.
