Flashing jetson OS on x64 machine


I would like to install a new operating system in order to work with jetson NX developer kit, we have been working with ubuntu 16.04 in an x64 machine but I would like to update to the latest 22.04.

Is this supported? If it is not, which is the latest linux os I could use? also, would linux mint work being debian…? or does it have to be ubuntu?

My use case is mainly training neural networks and flashing the jetson


Only JetPack 4.x (L4T R32.x) or older will work with a TX2. This in turn can run Ubuntu 18.04 (and is recommended). Ubuntu 20.04 can only be used with JetPack 5.x. The GUI will complain if you have Ubuntu 22.04, or if you use 20.04 with a JetPack 5.x. Since you cannot use JetPack 5.x with a TX2, this leaves you Ubuntu 18.04 as the most recent you can use.
