EOL Notice for NVIDIA Jetson TX1 Developer Kit

The Jetson TX1 Developer Kit is approaching EOL. Final orders from distributors will made by January 15, 2019, and NVIDIA will continue shipping Jetson TX1 Developer Kits through March, at which point those orders will be fulfilled.

JetPack 3.3 is the final JetPack to support Jetson TX1 Developer Kit. L4T sustaining releases for Jetson TX1 will continue to be made as deemed necessary. (L4T 28.2 was the most recent release.)

Note that NVIDIA Jetson TX1 module will remain available through January 2021. It is interoperable with the carrier board included with the Jetson TX2 Developer Kit as well as with various 3rd-party Jetson Ecosystem carrier boards.

I reload L4T 28.2 in my tx1. but there is a problem when I restart the system. How can I resolve it?

The system stop when there is “tegradc tegradc.1: bank normal".

You should probably start a new topic, but briefly, what you listed is just the unit going into a power savings mode for video. If video does not come up correctly, then the system itself is probably working well and video configuration needs to be addressed. You might want to see this:

hey guys, I am Deepak. I have an Nvidia Jetson Tx1 developer kit. But I don’t know how to start this first time and how to boot. I have tried to ON but I did’t get the GUI of Ubuntu. So I want to know this from the beginning. Can you help me, guys???

This is probably the wrong thread for the topic, but briefly, the developer kit comes with an older version of Ubuntu on it (a.k.a., “L4T”/“Linux for Tegra” once NVIDIA drivers are added). Separately sold modules require flash, but older modules would always have a recommendation to flash with a newer release. Regardless of version, do be sure you have an HDMI monitor since video display does not indicate failure to boot (VGA or some other interface adapters won’t work unless you get lucky).

Serial console is always the best way to know if boot actually worked or failed. See:
http://www.jetsonhacks.com/2015/12/01/serial-console-nvidia-jetson-tx1/

JetPack/SDK Manager is a GUI front end for flashing and for adding some extra packages. This runs only on an Ubuntu host. Command line flash can be done from any desktop Linux PC host. Some software availability links are here, including some documentation on getting started (forwarding does not work, so you will probably have to click the link, log in there, and then click the link a second time):
https://developer.nvidia.com/embedded/jetpack-archive
https://developer.nvidia.com/linux-tegra

Basically, if you have an Ubuntu PC handy, then the JetPack method is recommended. If you have only a Linux PC without Ubuntu, then you can use that second URL (JetPack downloads and runs the “driver package” and “sample rootfs” for you automatically…which is the second URL…and then flashes or adds packages).

Documentation is available at the various release URLs, but you can always ask more questions. Post a new topic to:

Hello Dustin,

I’m Amitava writing from India. I purchased a Jetson TX1 developer kit in 2016 now since TX-1 is near about EOL
Do i need to purchase TX2 SOC module and replace TX 1 module over the developer kit or entirely purchase the developer kit.

Awaiting for your reply.

Regards
AMITAVA
