I’m very new to the nvidia and computing board world, so apologies if this is a redundant or obvious question. In short, I’m having trouble connecting the TX2 installed on a J120 board to a host computer to flash.
I have a TX2 board with developer kit, but I’ve switched the TX2 onto a J120 board with a 1TB SSD card. I’m trying to flash the TX2 in the SDK Manager to set up JetPack 4.0. Right now, I can’t even get the host machine to recognize the TX2.
I’m powering the J120–> TX2 setup with a power supply set to 12V, which seems to be working (fan turns on briefly, lights flash). I have also connected the setup via Micro-USB with the cable that came supplied with the TX2 developer kit. I have started to go through the SDK Manager 4-step set up process, and have selected ‘Jetson TX2’ and ‘Jetpack 4.2’ as the target hardware and software, respectively. The download and flash process get as far as halfway through step 3, but then fails about 10% of the way through the Flash Jetson OS step.
In the terminal tab, the first error message says “Could not detect Nvidia Jetson device connected to USB. * To validate if the device is in connected correctly, run ‘lsusb’ command on your host, and look for “0955:7c18.”” I ran ‘lsusb’ in terminal and can’t see the device.
I’m using the cable that came with the developer kit and don’t have another micro-usb rated for data transfer, but could get one. Also, I’m running the SDK manager through VM, so that may have something to do with it.
Any advice on how to connect the TX2 via J120 so it can be flashed would be appreciated! I have found a lot of information on how to flash the TX2 with the developer kit, but for the project we have in mind we can’t use that. Thanks so much.
