Flash Jetson OS installation error and Jetson SDK components installation error

**Hardware Platform:DRIVE AGX Xavier™ Developer Kit
**Software Version:DRIVE Software 10
**Host Machine Version: Ubuntu 18.04
**SDK Manager Version:

I put AGX Xavier in recovery mode. Try to install Jetpack 4.4. Installation on host computer is successful.
I got errors on Target Components installation

Flash Jetson OS:
Flash Jetson AGX Xavier 16GB/32GB: Failed to execute commands with GenericInstaller

CUDA Toolkit for L4T: Depends on failed component

And others components (CV, DeepStream and ext) errors is the same depends error.

Am i doing something wrong?

Are you using a Linux host not VM host?
Linux on VM may occur errors during flashing.

And if you upload the terminal log, it would be helpful to find out what’s wrong.

Are you using DRIVE AGX platform or Jetson AGX Xavier platform?

Please directly run flash.sh and see what is the return error.

Hi dizzy9600,

Please try flash by manually:

  1. Go to sdkmanager download folder:
    $ cd /home/[username]/nvidia/nvidia_sdk/JetPack-4.4_Linux_JETSON_AGX_XAVIER/Linux_for_Tegra
  2. Put your Xavier device into recovery mode
  3. Flash:
    $ sudo ./flash.sh jetson-xavier mmcblk0p1

If still fail, please provide the flash and uart logs. Thanks!

Thanks you. I succeeded with flash. The problem was in russians symbols in path to bin with nvidia_sdk and sdk. When i was trying to flash manually - ascii error appeared - so, yes, it was it.

  1. Now i get error with multimedia api installing.
  2. I succeeded with installing other sdk components. I make all things to try CUDA samples. But i got error while trying to run CUDA samples.

CUDA error at …/…/common/inc/helper_cuda.h:775 code=35(cudaErrorInsufficientDriver) “cudaGetDevicceCount(&device_count)”

I know its a nvidia driver problem. I read Error while trying to start the examples this topic. So i cant find proper driver for agx xavier and also dont know to uninstall old driver and install proper.

Hi dizzy9600,

Are you finish all sdk components install?
If you got multimedia api install fail, please try install by below command:

$ sudo apt-get update
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-l4t-jetson-multimedia-api
$ sudo apt-get install nvidia-cuda

Please make sure the CUDA and MMAPI are installed.
ll /usr/local/cuda-10.2/ ll /usr/src/jetson_multimedia_api/


I put AGX Xavier in recovery mode. Trying to install Jetpack 4.4 using SDK manager with Linux host machine. Installation fails due to host component failure.
Host machine has Nvidia 1080ti card.

Please let me know if I am missing any steps.


Please clarifying whether your error is “installation sdk failure” or “flashing failure”.

If your error is “installation sdk failure”, then you don’t need to put the device into recovery mode, just give the IP address and user account to the sdkmanager prompt.

And there is a EXPORT LOGS button on sdkmanager, you can dump the log to file with that button.
