Errors on boot - serial log included

Hey guys,

We received the TX1 a couple weeks ago and I finally have time to get into it.
I have little experience with the NVIDIA platforms and Ubuntu

So first off it would not boot up and turn the display on also the Ethernet lights seem dim no num lock on keyboard

I made a serial cable to see what is going on and this is where I am now.

Just wanted some direction on my next move.

Thanks everyone

It looks like u-boot is working, and the extlinux.conf file is read successfully. After that kernel load starts but something is not working right with firmware (or the hardware the firmware is for). The firmware file itself is the correct size, as well as the Image size, so eMMC is working as intended. My desktop system is down, so I can’t look at my own u-boot logs for comparisons of boot messages to narrow it further.

Has there been any customization of this JTX1 at all? Is this straight out of the box?

Because parts of the Jetson do work, I’m wondering if flash might fix the issue. One thing you can do is try to put the JTX1 into recovery mode (use the type B USB cable, power up or cycle power reset while recovery button is held down) and check if the nVidia device shows up on your desktop host via lsusb…this would verify if other parts are still functioning and if flash is an option.

Thanks for the help.

This system is straight out of the box.

Some more info
It took a couple attempts to even get the system up and install the NVIDIA Linux driver binary release but we did get past that point, since then it has been in this state.

I will try the recovery mode option but I will need to setup a box with Ubuntu first.

It does sound more and more like a software issue. I know on this TX1 that initially it didn’t appear to work because it was driving the monitor beyond its specs until the was run. Once this is done, some people found WiFi binaries were incorrect, which caused high CPU use and sluggishness (I don’t know if this could complicate boot or not). See:

There isn’t a lot to go on, but I’m thinking the flash will probably solve the issues.

You nailed it linuxdev.

Setup an Ubuntu box and installed the latest Jetson Development Pack and flashed the Jetson with it and it is back up and running.

Thanks for the guidance.
