Flash Problem

Hi,

I’m trying to use JetPack-L4T-2.1-linux-x64.run to flash my TX1 development board.
But the process ends in failure with the following message in the log:

[ 1484.2345 ] 00000007: Written less bytes than expected
[ 1484.2984 ]
Error: Return value 7
Command tegradevflash --pt flash.bin --storageinfo storage_info.bin --create
Failed flashing t210ref.

Can anyone tell me what the problem might be?

Thanks.

If I had to guess, the image got corrupted. Redownload the entire Jetpack and try again.

I met the same problem and TX1变砖了

It is rare for a flash to brick any Jetson…mostly there are issues with an attempt to use a VM, or else a problem in download or preparation of operations. An example would be that you’re probably using over 20GB of host disk while flashing a TX1 and the host might not tell you that you’ve just run out of space.

I usually recommend installing via command line instead of through JetPack if there are issues. This is the smallest possible set of operations one can use to flash. Here is an older URL on command line flash, but you’d want to use the R28.2.1 driver package and sample rootfs:

You’d also want to use the original micro-B USB cable which comes with the Jetson since some of the other cables on the market are really just charger cables and their data abilities are questionable.

Thanks for your reply. Problem solved as described in thread: https://devtalk.nvidia.com/default/topic/1036712/jetson-tx1/failed-to-flash-64-bit-os-to-tx1-device/?offset=3#5266749
