Is there any way to flash the Orin Nano developer kit?

I’ve tried everything, using the SDK manager, including Jetpack 6, Jetpack 5.13, and Jetpack 5.12. None of this works. It simply cannot detect the microSD. I get:

One thing that is weird is that this device is a 945-13766-0000-000, and that doesn’t match any of the device options available in SDK Manager. That’s why I’m wondering, is this an authentic NVidia device, or does NVidia support it, or what? What’s the magic combination of version numbers of SDK Manager, JetPack and Ubuntu host do I need to make it detect the device, if it’s possible at all?

I’ve spent an entire week trying to get this to flash, desperate for any assistance. I have successfully flashed many many NVidia devices, such as TX1s and TX2s before, but this device seems out of reach.

Thank you

SOLVED!

DO NOT USE A 32GB MICROSD!

I switched to a fresh 128gb and it worked. I believe a 64gb would also work. 32gb absolutely does not work. That was painful.
