It is useful to know that SDKM is only a front end for other software. When the Jetson is in recovery mode SDKM can use flash software. When the Jetson is fully booted, then optional packages can be installed if (and only if) the Jetson has had its first boot setup completed and can be accessed via ssh.
If defaults are used with SDKM, then flash will occur, the Jetson will self-reboot, first boot setup must be completed, and then SDKM can install optional software (typically over address
192.168.55.1, but any working ssh address can be used).
You can uncheck “extras” and just flash, or you can uncheck “flash” and simply install optional packages. If you can ssh to the Jetson over the first boot account, then you know optional package install should work.
During recovery mode “
lsusb -d 0955:7019” can be used to detect a recovery mode Jetson. If you are flashing, then verify this shows up prior to starting the flash. Seeing the correct
lsusb implies flashing will work. Beware that VMs are usually a bit broken and will fail to handle USB correctly without significant effort.
For the case of wanting to flash: If you hold the recovery button down, and either bring up power or reset power (followed by letting go of recovery), can you see the device on the host PC with “
lsusb -d 0955:7019”?
For the case of wanting to install optional software: Can you ssh to your account you set up on first boot? Default is via address
