Error flashing Jetson Orin Nano (8GB) evm for A/B partition

I am trying to flash Jetson Orin Nano (8GB) with R35.4.1 to boot from nvme and enable A/B partitions for OTA updates. I am following the workflow #5 of the README_initrd_flash.txt. I have been getting the following error.

I have similar observation. I see the the script works fine but when we use (workflow3) the flashing is a failure.

There is no update from you for a period, assuming this is not an issue any more.
Hence we are closing this topic. If need further support, please open a new one.

Hi rohit.bhandarkar,

Are you using the devkit or custom board for Orin Nano?

What’s the physical size of your NVMe SSD?
Could you share the flash_l4t_nvme_rootfs_ab.xml from your BSP package for further check?
