How to flash the image quickly.

Dear All,

./ jetson-tx1 mmcblk0p1
Now I will take about 20 minutes to flash the TX1, even though I just update DTS or kernel zImage.
How to shorten the flash time.

hello PanAndy,

the flash progress would generate system.img and download it to your local machine.
could you please check which part takes longest time in your flashing procedure?

BTW, you could flash the device with existing system.img with -r command as below

./ -r jetson-tx1 mmcblk0p1

and partial update kernel or dtb with -k command, thanks

./ -r -k LNX jetson-tx1 mmcblk0p1
device tree:
./ -r -k DTB jetson-tx1 mmcblk0p1
