I’m currently trying to get the OS onto an external SSD (not M.2).
I followed the steps from ELinux:
- Untar sample rootfs to new ssd formatted as ext4
- Untar sample rootfs to the
rootfsfolder of the matching
Linux_for_Tegratoolchain on my host (Ubuntu 18.04 Desktop VM with USB passed through).
- Put the PARTUUID in the file
- Reboot the device into recovery mode (the graphical SDK Manager also recognizes it)
- Start flash with
sudo ./flash jetson-agx-xavier-devkit external
I get the error that it can’t find the file
etc/wpa_supplicant.conf which doesn’t exist. I first tried it with the most recent release of the Driver Package + Sample RootFs Jetpack 4.5.1 (at this time) and after that also with Jetpack 4.5.0.

Here is the log when I tried 4.5.0: https://transfer.cosmos-ink.net/mSX5j/log.log (the file has some nullbytes in it, so your text editor might complain).
Both seem to have the same error. When I create the wpa_supplicant.conf file I get complaints that a firmeware files is missing (
lib/firmware or similar, not sure anymore). Those files seem to be renamed and I get the impression that the Driver Package isn’t in sync with the same sample rootfs.
I can’t find anyone with a similar issue and it doesn’t seem to be strictly a flashing issue or anything regarding the external drive either.
Can anyone help me out here? I just got the AGX Xavier Devkit (32 GB) today. I set it up fine over serial and it boots well from emmc, but I wanted to get it to boot at least the rootfs from an external SSD (currently a T5, but later a Samsung SATA SSD with USB-SATA-Adapter).
