Flash write error & deviceQuery failed

Hi all.

I need a CUDA installation and sample testing in JETSON TX1.

1) Flash write error

For upgrade, I execute Jetpack-L4T-2.3.1 on unbuntu14.04(virtualbox) and select “Flash OS”.

But An Hang occurred while flash writing.

Is it failed because virtual box USB ?

[ 7.6689 ] Boot Rom communictaion
[ 7.6708 ] tegrarcm --chip 0x21 --rcm rcm_list+signed.xml
[ 7.6721 ] BootRom is not running
[ 7.7410 ]
[ 7.7386 ] Sending BCTs
[ 7.7398 ] tegrarcm --download bct P2180_A–_LP4_DSC_204Mhz.bct
[ 7.7410 ] Applet is not running on device. Contiune with Bootloader
==> hang!!!

2) deviceQuery failed

After CUDA samples installed, I execute deviceQuery.

cudaGetDeviceCount returned 35
-> CUDA drive version is insufficient for CUDA runtime version Result = FAIL.

Is this error caused by an upgrade failure?

Other “deviceQueryDrv” is working.

Device 0: “NVIDIA Tegra X1”
CUDA Driver Version : 7.5
CUDA Capbility Major/Minor version number : 5.3
Total amount of global memory: 3853 MBytes
… etc…

If you have any experience with this issue, Please Reply.


For flash write error, was your tx1 board in recovery mode ?

Hi Honey_Patouceul

Yes. is recovery mode. For hang. I checked “lsusb”.

Something strange always happens in the same palace.

Thanks your reply.

One thing I warn many people about is that if you have a remote login (such as via “ssh -Y”) there is a possibility that remote display to host (rather than Jetson) might interfere. CUDA uses GPU, and sometimes remote display settings cause CUDA to also try to run remotely on the host, not on the Jetson. In a case where this occurs and the Jetson has the proper CUDA version, but the host does not, you may get such an error because of host lacking that software…or if host does have that version, then performance might skyrocket (imagine substituting a new 1080 video card for the Jetson).

Was this failure via insufficient version during a remote login?

I hand execute “deviceQuery” in JESTSON.

Likewise, fails.

Is it related to flash write error?

If so, let me know another way that Flash write CUDA driver in JETSON.



I don’t know why, but i succeeded.

Another point is as follows.

While HDMI was connected with Ubuntu GUI in JETSON, entered recovery mode.

and “deviceQuery” is working.
