Flashing backup to Jetson withou need of rootfs


I’m trying to flash new (never flashed before) Jetson module with my backup image I got from another board without generating or downloading rootfs.

sudo ./flash.sh -r jetson-xavier-nx-devkit-emmc mmcblk0p1

I’m using the command above to perform this action but end up with fail - see the log file
flashing2.log (27.8 KB)

Maybe I don’t understand it correctly but I though rootfs is needed only to build system image (which I already have). Could someone explain to me how it really is?


I’m unsure of that log, but did you copy your previously generated image to:

That could be either a sparse or raw image so long as the name is correct.

I already managed to find the problem. Some binaries were copied from rootfs while creating recovery image. Running the flash script with enviromental variable NO_RECOVERY_IMG set to 1 solved this.

sudo NO_RECOVERY_IMG=1 ./flash.sh -r jetson-xavier-nx-devkit-emmc mmcblk0p1
