Installation Of ubuntu 20.04 in Jetson AGX Xavier

Previously, on my Edge device, Ubuntu 18.04 was installed; now I want to upgrade it to 20.04. Please give the detailed steps for that. Before doing this, I want to format or flash my Edge device. Also, give the instructions for that. It will be very helpful for me.

Use SDK Manager and select JetPack 5:

But on my host machine, Ubuntu 22.04 is present, and an edge device is not getting connected to the host’s SDK manager. What should I do? Please guide me.

Use Ubuntu 20.04.

Then connect it.

Is there any other way that we can flash the edge device?
Because it is also not booting and not going ahead of the black screen.

I’ve said, use SDK Manager.

Is it necessary for the host machine to have Ubuntu 20.04 installed?

It’s required if you use SDK Manager, but you can also manually download the BSP and use scripts to flash:

Yes, but as I mentioned, my Edge device is not booting properly. so manually not going to work.

You just make sure it can still go into force recovery mode.
The device stops working so that’s why you need re-flash…

I just got the 20.04 present Ubuntu version. I installed NVIDIA SDK Manager, but the edge device is still not getting connected. and in booting mode, it looks like the attached image.

Do you know how to put the device in force recovery mode?
Or you don’t know what I am saying?

I follow the below steps for force recovery.

  1. Start with the power off. Connect the power supply if it is not yet done. Connect a USB cable from the host into the micro-USB connector of AGX Xavier.
  2. Press and hold the ForceRecovery button (the middle one).
  3. Press and release the power button.
  4. Wait for 3 seconds.
  5. Release the force recovery button.

But still, it’s not connecting to the host machine.

Bro, you use the USB-C port for flashing, not the micro USB port…

No, its micro usb port.

I mean you have to use the USB-C port.

Yes, its connected now.
