How to Boot From SD Card? - #17 by carolyuu

Although it is working now, we still have some questions about it:

  1. Can we copy the content in the SDCARD that has been used to get a SDCARD with the same content? And bootup from this new SDCARD? .We have tried to copy a used rootfs to another card through the command “sudo cp -a * && sync”. Unfortunately this doesn’t work.
    We hope to make an image file containing some software, and it can be copied to more SDCARDs to boot NX.Can you give some suggestions?

  2. You seem to mention in the forum that external storage cannot be upgraded via OTA

Boot from external drive

Can this problem be avoided ?

How to create a distributable image of a SD card for Jetson Nano

  1. Actually, this question is a little lacking of thinking. “Official” OTA upgrade does not know your board design. Using it to upgrade the system will break your system. For example, your sdmmc3 will be gone. No need to think about mounting from it, since it does not exist.
    Official OTA upgrade is just a template. The correct way is you should study some knowledge of debian package and create your own debian package, put it on your OTA server and use it to update the system instead of using the official one.
